Finalized Wedding Invitation Design

I feel so overcome with joy about how awesome my man is. It's like the best combination of all time: me, the painter and Eric, the sculptor. I always sort of fantasized about living with an artist and spending time making work together, visiting galleries, and getting into exhibitions, and I got my wish! And it doesn't hurt that he's cute either. Just look how disgustingly adorable we are!


Photo shoots are the most awkward things invented. I pretty much just cracked up the entire time out of nervousness.
Now allow me to dispense with the icky mushy romantic junk and show you how our invitations turned out.

We finally managed to get these printed and mailed a few weeks ago and I just adore them! I've left out the information, which is placed in the center of the design because sadly, I can't invite all of you wonderful readers...

Some silly (but golden) pictures I found online


I never know the origin of images like these, but they're pure gold. You kinda have to be a geek or have a bizarre sense of humor like mine to appreciate them, but hopefully they'll make your day a little brighter.










Love, 
Chloe




The "Spread"

 I'm a huge fan of "spreads." At least, that's what I call them; spreads are a multitude of delightful treats and pretty things laid out with care and attention to detail. I made this one for my beloved Eric, who got pizza rolls, a peanut butter cupcake, some daisies, a Cadbury egg, some dead animals, and an Adam Farmer painting.











And check out this one he made for me! Spreads freakin' rock.





I believe that all artists should be skilled in creating fine spreads, especially when it comes to exhibitions. Here's mine from the Java Cabana "Optical Assault" show:



What sorts of things would you include in your spread?

More Previews

Check it out. These photos are awful; it's on panel this time so I'm getting some major glare-age with my camera's flash, but you get the idea.

IN PROGRESS

IN PROGRESS


I plan on having this baby completed sometime on Sunday, so be sure to check in for the finished result. Excuse me while I go try to figure out which Decorator number I'm at now...
