Navy + Powder Blue + White | Wedding Roses Stationery Design

When I was first starting out in my calligraphy journey, I never realized what one of the hardest parts of the ride would be… fake addresses! As it turns out, they’re also really fun to make up and photograph. I like to use characters from some of my favorite television shows, movies or books. Sometimes, I even design a suite with a fictional couple in mind. Like the below… if Lisa Turtle invited Jessie Spano to her wedding.

I love the powder blue (bluebell) and navy (night) envelopes mixed with the yellow, white and brighter pop of blue. If your floral decor incorporates some greenery, ooh la la, perfect! To top these beauties off, we chose some vintage postage that incorporated that bright blue hue and personalized this suite even further with the South Carolina stamp since the couple was tying the knot in the Palmetto State. Lastly, you can’t forget to seal the deal with wax. We chose a silver wax seal for the square invitations. The perfect final touch for this sweet couple!

You guys, I used to really dislike the color pink. I wouldn’t wear a pink shirt or accessory to save my life. I guess I was rebelling against the whole, girl = pink, thing. But now it’s my new favorite color (sorry purple!). And this color story is so good! Check out the supply list at the bottom for details on specific paint and stationery used.

Watercolor Florals | Blue Anemone

Anemones are so beautiful and make such a great subject to paint. I’m wishing I had these in my wedding bouquet. Which, btw, did you know you can get a fake bouquet of them for the low price of $265? Yeah, I think I’ll take the real deal, Mr. William Sonoma ;)

If this painting looks familiar … I followed Jenna Rainey’s youtube tutorial. I put my own spin on the leaves and obvi mine is not nearly as pretty as hers. But you should check out her videos, they’re super helpful and she’s fun to watch!

As always, if you wanna grab this piece and use it as an iPhone wallpaper, pick up your download here!
