I really enjoy art challenges (yes the valentine one is coming..LOL)
so here is one I thought I would keep an eye on:
This weeks theme is FADED, I have done other faded images but I am really loving this one which is actually the announcement to Alex and My Handfasting. I loved the original photo and the colors were amazing, I wanted to share the close up on the hands and use it twice for the inside and outside of the announcement. I actually love the faded effect because the colors are intact but misty and softer.
When we send out the invite the photo we include will be the original (at the bottom of the post)
The faded inside of the announcement (URL at bottom obscured)
Original colors -outside of announcement
Original Photo from our second engagement set in Nov
I am changing our Handfasting site into less of a blog and more of an official wedding site so I am moving my DIY and art projects form it to here
The invite covers, a photo I did of Alex’s hand holding a squishy heart
Front of our invites
I did these on 140lbs Watercolor paper that I painted (watercolor wash sprinkled with raw sugar to get a cool effect) and then drew on, These are Art Trading Card size little cards (2.5in x 3.5in) and I mounted
them on cut down notecards I got for $.25 an 8 pack at Micheal’s.
I printed out the insides on business cards and glued them inside. I love
DIY projects and these were CHEAP, about $.06 a piece…LOL.
Making the Save the Dates
The inside is done in word so it is formatted slightly differently (this was a photoshop image
