Simonapries Art As Wedding Invitation2 CopySimonapries Art As Wedding Invitation Copy

When I first saw the  Simona Pries art piece I used on the board yesterday I thought it’d make a great wedding invitation. So I put together these little mock-ups of ideas to start you off (because I think it could be done a million ways!). You could either use one layer of vellum, tape it off in sections, painting thin washes of color over each section, or overlay multiple layers of vellum with only one section painted on each layer and perhaps different text/information on each layer so that when its all stacked up you got a nice complete suite. Either way, you’d need to iron each painted piece to make it smooth and flat again as the watered-down paint would wrinkle the vellum.
