Different projects

On top of all of the usual envelopes and placecards, there have been a number of different projects to keep me on my toes.  The first photo is a poem a friend wanted to frame for her living room.  The second was a custom lettering style for Celiday, who wanted things large and loopy and on the diagonal.  The third was a poem given as a gift, and the last photo shows a seating chart that would have been right at home at my own wedding had I been doing this 13 years ago!

Some recent trends

Mash up seems to be the lettering style of the season - in many colors and different incarnations.  We see it here in pink on black envelopes with a unique (and lovely!) return address choice.  The second photo is white ink with an offset name on black paper.  The third shows the mashup in gold ink written inside a preprinted border, and the fourth shows it in a deep purple with a flourish below.

New pictures for the new year

I've been so busy writing I haven't had time to update!  Here are some examples of what I've been working on lately.  The first photo shows heather lettering in a shimmery blue ink.  The second is wispy lettering in gold (and to some fun addresses!).  The third photo is chancery lettering in navy ink, and the fourth is block lettering in magenta.
