Weddings, calligraphy, paper and lots of lines, oh my!

I've been offering these "Signing Pages" in my etsy shop for a few months now, and they are a really big hit! I think it's such a unique way to brush off the tired guest-book tradition, and try something different ;) I'm not knocking guest "books". I had one! And it's a dear treasure. But I haven't seen it in over 5 years and it was dusty then too. I love the fact that you can display this as framed art in your home, and enjoy the autographs of the guests who honored you with their presence at your wedding.

Here are two recent Wedding Guest Signing Pages I completed.

This was done double layered with a dark sky-blue and soft white layer. The Hydrangeas were done using watercolor. The lettering was gouache. The 16x20 size easily fit 125 lines.

The bride I designed these signing pages for described her vision of an antiqued look with very soft colors, and light shades of pinks and blues in the roses and hydrangeas. She preferred the double layered pages for an 11x14 size rather than the larger 16x20. This size is great if you don't have the wall space to frame such a large piece.

I hope you all are having a great holiday season!!! I am busy, busy, but I will come update again soon! xo, Danae
