I was so honored that she and her soon-to-be hubby asked me to design the invitations (below) and programs (not yet finalized!):
And then I knit her a shawl for her wedding day...
The button is an antique found on etsy from the 1920's!
And today I completed a painting that I will give her and her new husband for their wedding. I had not used the mixed media technique on canvas before. It was quite fun, and I am quite pleased with the results. I used ephemera from the wedding (invitation to the wedding and other events) as well as miscellaneous ephemera to collage the canvas before painting. I chose to use the poppy that was used for the invitations, on the painting (one for the bride, and one for the groom) and found a quote that I thought was very fitting, on many levels: their love for each other and our friendship! The two focal poppies were made by first painting the ephemera red, and then cutting them out and collaging them on the canvas. The details were painted with ink.
If you look closely here, you can see the invitation.
