Save the Date

August seems to be quickly approaching, which is kind of a good thing b/c planning a small out-of-state shindig has proved harder than we originally thought it would be.  Wes & I decided on sending out simple 6in x 6in postcards that had a bit of folk art feel to them.

I sketched up an image that included both our home states and the tiny church we’ll be married in.  I then painted the color separately and layered them together to give a slightly silk-screened effect.  We then built our own site (more on that later) and will be letterpressing our own invites with our brand-new (but old) letterpress.

    [...] something sweet & personal, so I decided to draw little portraits of them in the style of our wedding Save-the-Dates and frame them.  I can’t put up all of them just yet, since two of them are still en route to [...]
