I was asked to design a wedding invitation set for a Cara and Louis, who will be married at the gorgeous Waveny House in Connecticut this coming August! I also designed their engagement party invites earlier this year. They requested an elegant and vintage style invitation to match the Tudor style mansion setting. I decided to use a lovely floral pattern in a soft peach (a ballet pink for two wonderful ballet dancers) for the backdrop of the invitation set, with a deep lapis shimmer pocket enclosure. I mixed a retro-inspired font I designed with starbursts for the invitation design. The invitation and reply were printed on white cotton paper and bound together with a soft peach cotton band and tag echoing the invitation design. I wish this pair a fabulous wedding day at the fabulous Waveny House!
1. I’m pretty sure I bleach in the sun, like those stuffed animals left in the back of car windows.
2. I am NOT a seamstress. More specifically, tutus are far more difficult to create than I could have imagined.
3. My cell phone, and really most other electronics, are the bane of my existence and generally stop working in my presence.
an outtake from my photoshoot for my Photoshop class. We need to clone ourselves in an image using Photoshop. I don’t know if any of what I took will work for my project, they’re a bit grainy as the lighting wasn’t so great, and many pics are a bit blurry from movement. But it was fun taking the shots…
I bought new pointe shoes, so of course I just had to get a pictures of them. Before they get all dirty and mashed up. Is it weird to say I love the smell of new pointes? Yea… it probably is…
For those who care to know, they’re Bloch Aspirations. I’m not sure how I feel about them yet. I feel like the shank is a bit too stiff, and the toe box is a bit wider than I’m used to. My last pair were Gaynor Minden, but that was a long time ago. And since they’re a bit expensive, and a friend of mine works for a shop that carries these, I will try Bloch at least until I get my bearings again.
