This week was pretty crafty. I took on a challenging project, designing and calligraphy of the day of the wedding stationery. I had been wanting to try artsy, hand painting project in a while and I was finally able to do so with watercolors. I was also able to put my calligraphy skills to use on place cards, table numbers and signs. They turned out great considering I have ways to go before I master the art of the pointed pen. I’ve been practicing it for a while and the whole process takes a whole lot of time and patience. Here is a little peek at all the watercolor and calligraphy I’ve done so far.
These watercolor place cards were done on an uncoated heavy Mohawk stock (just had some laying around the office) with just basic watercolors in beautiful shades of pink. I used black and gold calligraphy inks to add a little sparkle….

They turned out beautifully. I’m a designer from Seattle and just teaching myself calligraphy… if you know of any local workshops I’d love to hear! Your work is lovely. ~Christy
Thank you Christy! I’m still looking for one. I guess we missed Molly Jacques when she was in Seattle last summer ;( I’ll keep you posted. Cheers,
