Save the Date!

Next month my family will be celebrating my grandmother's 85th birthday in California. I was asked to design a save the date email then a printed invite. Since it's an Afternoon Tea, I decided I would bust out the old watercolors and create a personalized Illustration. It's been a LONG time since I've painted and I'm clearly a little rusty. Still, I think it came out alright.

After the painting was scanned I brought it into Photoshop and popped in a picture of my grandma when she was little. It's a little fuzzy, but amazing that this photograph was taken about 80 years ago.

Now that the save the date is done,  I get to work on the printed invites. Where did I put that exato knife?


  1. love it, Marissa! I have not painted in years either, I'm sure mine would not turn out as nice.

  2. Thanks SO much for checking my post out and for the sweet comment :) I have been popping Calcium and Vitamin D supplements like woah, so I totally understand! :)
