This Signing Scroll is different than most wedding scrolls I make because the customer decided to add much more lettering - I loved the wording she chose to incorporate and the way the calligraphy looks stacked. Although the scroll incorporated a watercolored illustration, the focal point was the calligraphy.

I don't ever get tired of these.... wedding maps are still such a unique idea and look even prettier with hand calligraphy and illustration. Here is one of my recent wedding maps of the colorful Northwest. This is a picture of the original 9x12 map, however, printing will allow it to be smaller and even printed on ivory paper for a softer look. I love the bright contrast of watercolor wash with black lettering though!
I've done several maps recently, my next post to come soon will feature a watercolored map of Queensland, AU.

Flowing lettering angled across soft white paper... this wedding invitation suite has been one of my favorite creations of the year! The Bahamas map was especially fun since I didn't know as much about the island as I thought after all the research. Ever heard of the "Glass window bridge?" Google it!

I love these colors! Maybe because I want spring to come so badly, these pastel tones are a delight to work with.
Signing Scrolls take the place of a guest book for weddings and there are so many ways to customize, it can either be fun, or overwhelming. I'm always happy to give my input for color, lettering style and illustration preferences. You can't go wrong though, to request matching certain elements that you are using in your wedding - flowers, invitations, color palette, etc.
Have a happy day, friends!

Happy to announce a new listing in my etsy shop! Lovely rubber address stamps, completely custom designed in my Loopy-Luxe Copperplate calligraphy. Laser-cut red rubber gives such a crisp impression and I just love the old-fashioned feel of a real wooden stamp WITH a handle.
