green & gold wedding inspiration

annadel-inspiration

Annadel is one of my 2014 wedding invitation designs for Bella Figura (top left!), and I’m crazy about the glamorous green and gold combo. Above are some inspirations for the design (and a wedding to match!). You can see more on my Pinterest board. A big thanks to Bella Figura for creating the layout, and for this:

“Think lush green florals, sparkling twinkle lights, gold rimmed glassware, the prettiest letterpress and foil stamped wedding invitations, and a firework send-off.”

ceramics class

One day in a wave of self-pity I told my husband that I wished I could ever, sometime in my life, again have time to take an art class. Tear. And then my birthday rolled around and my sweet husband remembered and signed me up for a handbuilding class. I look forward to Tuesdays all week, when I can zone out and focus on the clay in my hands.

For some reason, I am hard on myself with all art mediums except clay. With clay I can focus on the making, and not care what it looks like in the end. It’s very freeing.

These two inspiring pieces are by Kaye Blegvad and I’m her newest fan. You can check out more of my sculpture inspiration on Pinterest.
