Another batch of bridesmaids! I wasn't kidding when I said I'd been busy with bridal commissions this season...

Congratulations to Jane Andrews, the lovely bride who commissioned these gifts for her maids, on a beautiful wedding this past weekend!

Erika's Girls

Meet Erika's bridesmaids, I sketched each of these lovely ladies for her to give them to thank them for being a part of her wedding. Aren't they fabulous, each with very unique style and personality?

Erika was such a fun bride. She made a pinterest board for me to showcase each girl's sense of style and matched it with "dream outfits" to sketch them in. It was like playing dress up. We even turned each sketch into stationery...

Well, what a way to start Friday. Kate exceeded my expectations by leaps and bounds. I loved her sleek bridal look, even better than what I anticipated! So in keeping with today's theme of love and marriage, I thought I'd share with you a project I did recently for a bride to be. She shared pictures with me of her bridesmaids and flower girls and together we worked on creating on stationery for each girl. The individual illustrations are pictured above. Sarah, the bride, selected pictures of her friends in their cutest outfits to share with me and made sure I captured each one's personality. Here are two samples of what I worked from... Each bridesmaid and flower girl got a box of note cards personalized with their name and illustration and the original sketch by moi to keep. Here's a sample... Just a little sample of something I've been working on! Now, I think I need a nap. I've been up since 4am!
