designsgirl has had the great pleasure to do work recently for the painter and wedding invitation designer Kristy Rice- the proprietress of Momental Designs - who created the gorgeous hand painted wedding invitations and suite pieces recently for Jessica Simpson's wedding.
Her work is simply breathtaking and I am pleased to share a few of the recent projects where I contributed calligraphy.
Kristy uses a plethora of magical elements in her work based on whatever her imagination can conjure from blind letterpress, rose gold foil, watercolor washes, painterly blooms to ribbons, pearls, wood veneer, lace and tulle.
Lana Frankel is a uber talented artist whose online store - Lana's Shop- was recently featured on Wedding Chicks.
Lana and I collaborate on a number of wedding projects and she was kind enough to include one of my photographs of her beautiful Protea envelope liner and my calligraphy for a bridal project created by another of our fellow creatives- Maura Gauthier of Denver's The Paper Guppy.
The circuitous threads among clients and fellow artists with whom you work sometime lead to monumental work and opportunities.
I just discovered that the incredible Jessica Simpson commission I received started with a recommendation by the lovely ladies of Calluna Events to Kristy Rice of Momental Designs who hired me for the hand lettering of Ms. Simpson's wedding pieces.
Thank you, Heather and Jolene- my other calligraphy fairy godmothers.
A calligraphy project descended from the heavens recently when designsgirl received the commission to do the wedding calligraphy for Jessica Ann Simpson's and Eric Maxwell Johnson's recent nuptials.
The lavish affair, including the invitation, is featured in the latest issue of People magazine.
I am forever grateful to my calligraphy fairy godmother- the talented painter and proprietress of Momental Designs - Kristy Rice- who presented me with this extraordinary job and who created all of the breathtaking hand painted wedding suite pieces.
I am grateful to Samantha and Whitney - owners of the gorgeous Gus & Ruby stationer of Portsmouth, New Hampshire stationer- who gave designsgirl calligraphy credit during a recent Oh So Beautiful Paper feature of clients Kate and Cleon dreamy wedding suite.
The rose gold metallic gouache I used for Kate's and Cleon's wedding envelopes was gleamingly beautiful.
