This beautiful and dreamy boudoir photo shoot, featured this past week on Wedding Sparrow, was styled and photographed by Connie Whitlock of Connie Dai Photography and Shannon Von Eschen of Shalynne Imaging.

designsgirl has talented friends and when they ask her to do fun projects with complete creative license, she gets giddy with excitement.
A watercolor garland filled with berries and flowers was done based on my introduction to watercolor by way of a recent watercolor class given by the uber-talented Kristy Rice of Momental Designs.
And new lettering styles were used that I am polishing for the upcoming season.
I am enjoying sharing work with those artists I know and love and discovering marvelous new artists on Instagram who provide a daily infusion of creative inspiration to me.

designsgirl has had the great pleasure and privilege to do work recently for the extraordinary painter and wedding invitation designer Kristy Rice- the proprietress of Momental Designs.
Her work is simply breathtaking and I am pleased to share one of the recent projects where I contributed calligraphy.
This naming ceremony announcement is a magical blend of blind letterpress, rose gold foil, watercolor washes, painterly blooms, pearls and tulle.

Sara Hasstedt is an extraordinarily talented Denver wedding photographer who shared her beautiful photographs recently of bride and groom Jessica and Matthew at their outdoor garden wedding.
I was honored to hand letter the wedding calligraphy of the couple's invitation, envelopes and reception pieces.
Lana Frankel of Lana's Shop painted the original artwork of the Protea flower for the envelope liner and Maura Gauthier of The Paper Guppy designed the invitation suite.

Colorado's chicest and most sophisticated magazine- Reign - has made quite an impact on the Denver scene since it was launched two years ago by the husband and wife team of Betsy and Kevin Marr.
It has been designsgirl's pleasure to do a range of hand lettering for some of its features and on some unusual surfaces- wood, leather, glass, cloth and china.
When you work with creative people, you are always learning new things.
