Remember that video I shared a few days ago? It turned into this quick little card I made for a lovely couple on their wedding day. Back home now and have a pile of work waiting for me. No jetlag [allowed] for this girl! πŸ™…πŸ»πŸ™…πŸ»πŸ™…πŸ»

I think I've said this before, but I feel unbelievably grateful to have found watercolour. There's something about that moment when brush and pigment touches paper that makes my heart skip a beat. Things have been a little hectic and it's been hard to find time to sit down and paint, so finding 15 minutes to paint this card was just pure joy. .
Note to self: find more of these little 15 min bits to paint.
Note to others: lots of watercolour cards coming your way 😘

I had a blast creating these groomsmen cards for a client. My client wanted a bit of a more classic vibe with these cards and I'm pretty happy with how they turned out!
.
It seems like groomsmen cards are a little less common than bridal party cards. Do you guys have any ideas for groomsmen card themes? . .

Remember that thank you card I posted last week? Here's a video of how I made it including the BIG BOO BOO that I made. I was able to rescue it after the fact with a bit of scraping

Ps. Did anyone watch art attack growing up (I don't know if this was a Canadian thing) but my husband says my videos always reminds him of that show we watched as kids. πŸ˜‚

I had a piece of this hot pressed cardstock and decided to try out some loose florals on it. I've never painted on hot pressed paper and could definitely tell the difference versus working on cold pressed cotton paper. .
The paint didn't blend together as well and I ended up with some drying rings as well. I didn't love the way the finished product looked, however, as @monvoirco likes to say: "create something today even if it sucks" . .

I'm playing around with a new colour combo as I prep for a new project and painted this fun, not so little, wreath! 🌸🌺🌼It's a little hard to tell but I used a touch of finetec gold for the centres of the flowers. I was inspired to try this after watching one of @letteringinphosphenes stories. .

Lettering with a paintbrush is still such a struggle esp the longer ones but it looks so nice if you can get it right ------------

Thank you to my mom and mother-in-law for believing that I am wonderful even at my worst and most blister-y states ❀️ (ps. Finished piece of the video I posted yesterday!)

Packaging up these beauties to send to the client!

I know I've said this multiple times over the last week but seriously things have been craaaazy over here. Hopefully getting a little bit of downtime over the next week and focussing on my first love and working on some suite designs!
.
Lastly, thank you again to everyone for all your wonderful comments on my last post! My heart is so full! ❀
