bee's my nickname, always has been.
so anyways I've been super-busy, it doesn't even feel like summer! Besides the bookplates I've been making, I've been working on wedding invitations and other sorts of designs for invites...
Here's a little insight into the process:
I carved a paisley pattern and a wildflower (I call them dandelions) onto linoleum blocks. Oy! Carpal tunnel!
I printed said linoleum block in a pretty zucchini & co. pink on lovely rice paper and thick cotton rag.
[I let them dry...] I scanned them into my computer.
I took 'em into Photoshop and played... and then I took 'em into Illustrator and played!
I then learned that my printer (with a little love and encouragement) can handle nice cotton rag!
Then I uploaded some pictures of them to my Flickr. I like to call Zucchini & Co.'s wedding things an imprint called "Love, Zucchini". Like if my teeny 'Kini sent invites, that's what they would look like. What do you think?
