Wedding Sampler/Marriage Certificate
This piece was commissioned by the bride's sister to celebrate a special wedding. The lettering, greenery and colors were in keeping with the theme of the wedding and reflected a request for a design "that is very gentle, soft and delicate."
The artwork was lettered on ivory drawing paper using Speedball dip pens and black ink. The details were drawn in using an archival Millennium pen and the flowers and greenery colored with watercolor paints. The artwork then was drymounted onto acid-free matboard to prevent warping and framed with acid-free materials and UV protective glass. The sampler was then shipped to the bride's parents' home where the storybook wedding took place.
