Bohemian Waterfall Wedding Elopement Photoshoot

 

This past autumn I worked with some talented friends on a bohemian inspired waterfall wedding photoshoot, and it was just featured on Vineyard Bride’s website! What better place to photograph a bohemian, forest wedding styled shoot than in the woods with a waterfall?!  I couldn’t be happier with these stunning photos by Melissa Northcott Photography 🙂  We had such a fun and inspiring day amongst the trees and the gorgeous waterfall, even the cool weather couldn’t bring us down! P.s. the fabulous models were troopers in the chilly air, you can’t even tell it was almost November! My Peacock Feather & Leaves Wedding Stationery was featured, and it was a perfect fit for the bohemian feel. I love collaborations! Here’s the link to the Vineyard Bride Feature, and make sure to watch the video!!!

Weddingbells Magazine Stationery Feature!!!

I couldn’t be more excited to share this feature!  Weddingbells Magazine contacted me a few months ago to design a Rose Themed Wedding Stationery Collection for a photoshoot they were planning, and it’s finally in print! They collected beautiful blush, rose and gold toned pieces to inspire a romantic and rosy wedding day! The editorial is called, “First Blush – Everything’s coming up roses with these pretty-in-pink accessories!” You can see my watercolour rose square invitation and map centre-right on the page (beside a super cute confetti balloon from Creative Bag)!!! Click here to see the full collection 🙂  How cool to be featured!!!

Mingle Magazine Boho Wedding Feature!

I am excited to share a lovely magazine feature with you!  I was fortunate to be part of a bohemian inspired wedding photoshoot that is featured in the current issue of Mingle Magazine!  Our shoot spans 7 pages, but there are even more beautiful pictures I’d like to share with you here!  
 
First off, Mingle Magazine is a gorgeous, matte paper magazine filled with ideas to host creative and memorable events, dinners, and special occasions.  They curate very well and only pick the most inspiring projects, so I’m pround to be included!  Lorrie Everitt was the mastermind and creative director behind this styled shoot, and she gathered a wonderful group of ladies to collaborate with!  Photographed by Kat Williams (Attakat) at The Warehouse Event Venue in Downsview Park, we brought their industrial space to life with flowers, sweets, signage and decor!

Cakelaine created the MOST intricate and gorgeous wedding cakes and sweets I have ever seen!  The succulents are made from fondant, and look just like real!  I just love all the little details she included 🙂

Toni of Confetti and Bows showcased her amazing wall of handmade paper flowers that we used as a photo booth wall!  Doris from Love Lettering did all the custom hand lettering on the chalkboards… aren’t they perfect?!

The paper goods were designed by your’s truly, using my watercolour illustrations!  They were actually the inspiration behind the decor!  You have to start with some kind of inspiration, so I’m happy to be that!

The vintage and table decor was provided by The Perfect Table, and my menu is show here below 🙂 You can find the lace table runners here.

I also teamed up with Doris from Love Lettering to create an adorable bridesmaid gift!  She did the lettering on a kraft jewellery box from Creative Bag, and my wearable art cameo necklace is inside – notice the artwork matches the invitations?!

All of our beautiful floral arrangements were created by Jessica from Periwinkle Flowers. I added gold paint to white hobnail milk glass vases from Creative Bag

The paper lanterns, balloons, chalkboards, cake stands and cake topper are all from Creative Bag. Lorrie added the gold details to the “best day ever” cake topper and you can find her DIY tutorial here.

Art Gallery of Hamilton Wedding | Theresa & Paul

To kick off my new bi-monthly blog post commitment (that I’m making to myself, and you of course!) I thought I’d share one of my favourite weddings! Theresa and Paul were married last summer, but I never really shared all of the beautiful photos that came from that day since I hadn’t started blogging, and I shouldn’t keep them to myself!

Theresa and Paul were possibly the sweetest couple I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with, and so was Paul’s Mom who was my drop-off point of contact! We had fun with florals for their invitations, programs and tri-folds (featuring the table number, menu and some fun facts about the couple). Theresa wanted a floral wreath with some classic and elegant fonts for their stationery. We spoke with Sue Gallo Designs to coordinate the flowers of their stationery with their actual bouquet and decor flowers, and you can really see the impact in the photos! Beautiful garden roses, anemone and ranunculus (to name a few) in romantic and dreamy cream, blush and lavender. I’m so in love with this botanical wedding design, and really feel it complimented their day perfectly 🙂

Also, very exciting for me, Theresa and Paul’s wedding was featured in Ontario’s Hitched Magazine – my very first print feature!!!  They showcased a beautiful collection of photos from their perfect wedding day, and many of my pieces were included!  You can take a peek at the 4 page spread below.  I just have to say, Sue Gallo‘s flowers go so beautifully with my stationery, I think we may be a match made in heaven 😉  Danielle from Shaw Events put together such a stunning event, and found the perfect balance of modern elegance with some vintage touches. I love when everything comes together so perfectly, especially at a real wedding!

DIY Herringbone Knit Cowl Scarf

Sharing a DIY cowl scarf I made out a vintage skirt (the fabric) and 2 balls of yarn… It was a happy accident because I ran out of yarn and wanted to make a cowl scarf, so I found the skirt material and it matched so perfectly!

Here’s a great video on how to do the herringbone stitch – once you get it, it’s not too difficult, and SO worth it 🙂  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1GlQ16pud5A

Unfortunately this all came together unplanned, so I don’t have progress photos… but it’s not too complicated.  All you need is a rectangle of knitted fabric, and any other heavy fabric of your choice.  I stitched the knitting onto both sides of my skirt fabric using my sewing machine, as you can see in this photo. I then folded the ends onto each other so it made the shape below (it helps to try it on your neck first).  Last, I hand stitched the sides together.  Sorry for the lack of photos, if I make another one, I’ll be sure to document properly!

Marks and Spencer Teacups Tin!

AHHH, I’m SO excited! Last year I was contacted by Marks and Spencer, (yes, M&S the company!!!) who asked to use my vintage teacup artwork on a biscuit tin… well, it’s finally out on the shelves, and I just received photos from a friend who found them in a shop in London!!! This hasn’t felt real, but these photos certainly help! Can’t wait to get my hands on the real deal!  It’s not yet online, but hopefully soon 🙂

I still remember shopping at Marks and Spencer when it was in Canada, it was my Mom’s favourite place to shop for chocolate!!!  I’m very honoured and proud to be on their shelves 🙂  The M&S team over in London was also fabulous to work with, which is an added bonus to the experience!  Thanks so much to them all 🙂  I’m SO thrilled about my Marks and Spencer Teacups Tin!!!

New Wedding Lookbook!

Hot off the press! My new Wedding Lookbook is officially ready for distribution! It features my illustrated stationery, one-of-a-kind jewellery and brooch bouquets. I’m so excited and proud to show it off  🙂

New floral artwork for prints & fabric!

New floral painting finished last night with peonies, feathers, dusty miller and succulents. Mauve, cream and mint colours, my current favourites!  Prints, cards and wedding stationary will be coming soon, and I just ordered fabric for making pillows, re-covering small furniture and scarves!!!  Can’t wait to get the fabric in the mail… I love receiving packages instead of envelopes 🙂

Georgetown Newspaper ad artwork

Neat surprise! The Acton Town Hall Centre logo I painted and designed is in the local paper (the Independent Free Press)! Just flipped to it and thought, hey, that’s a nice ad!  Love seeing my work in context, and making a newspaper a little prettier 😉
