Happy Tuesday everyone! Today I am sharing a few behind-the-scenes shots of some placecards I'm making for an upcoming wedding. I did a lot of work on them this weekend and took a few pictures thinking you might all like to see what I have going on in my studio. This is step one of the process for these placecards. I am doing a light pink wash, an ombré effect over the entire card. The pink is super light and sometimes hard to see in these pictures. But it looks beautiful in person and I'm happy with how the color turned out.
I completed a bunch but I still have more to finish up this week (it's a big wedding). It is actually a peaceful activity and I'm looking forward to spending an afternoon washing away. The next step in the process will be for me to do the names and table numbers in calligraphy script. The lettering will be written in a darker pink and I'll share more of that when I get to that step. The final result, with all of these cards together, will be really lovely I think. It feels so ethereal and feminine already.
Here is a bunch of them laying out to dry on my studio floor.
All dry and stacked together. Each card is different and I love the subtle hue variations.
What projects do you have going on right now? Anyone else doing any watercoloring?
