My lovely friend Hillery posted a gorgeous photo on Instagram, and it sent my mind spinning.
The photo is gorgeous on its own - she could frame it as-is. But I was looking for inspiration to show stationers how my custom paper illustrations would work, and this hit the perfect note.
First, I created an illustration in black and white.
Then, at this point, you could color it in lots of ways. I like to use hand-applied watercolor.
Once you have the image you like... there are so many possibilities!
These images led to a spread in my new retail portfolio... more on that later.
I love creating these paper pieces! If you're interested in custom, one-of-a-kind artwork for your events or social correspondence... I'm your girl!
