It is that time of the year when the calligrapher is immersed in wedding projects. For designsgirl, this wedding project for Jordan Mutchler is her largest one to date- hand addressing over 350 envelopes for a 500+ wedding at the Broadmoor Resort in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
designsgirl was thrilled to do an "Alice in Wonderland" kitschy regal wedding invitation for Annie Roche of 5 by 7 designs in Dallas, Texas. A nod to the groom's Oxford lineage and the bride's Texas roots were incorporated into the design.
I am thrilled by the response to my Kitschy regal designs.
I have had the pleasure to work with several clients for Save the Date and wedding announcements recently and have been building a collection of designs for semi-custom work for crests, monograms, postage stamps and invitations.
After receiving a fabulous pen and ink commission of the Chicago skyline for a Christmas card this year, designsgirl has been expanding her repertoire to include new pen and ink drawings for wedding invitations, wedding monograms, business logos and family crests which she describes as "kitschy regal".
Shown here are my first pen and ink commissions- a tropical wedding cartouche for a Save the Date announcement with hand drawn herons, tropical flowers and pineapples; a current logo design commission and several designs for my design library for semi-custom work.
