Custom Invitations: Flutter


I must confess I am a magazine hoarder. Whenever we moved I would snip out all the magazine articles and pictures that I loved and file them into little bins, thinking I was being very organized...only to discover that by the end I kept practically everything! But those numerous articles and images from the past often inspired my illustrations and invitations. My Flutter invitation actually started out from certain details from a spread that Elle Decor did in their March '04 issue. The palette of the room and the string of butterflies dangling from the mirror absolutely mesmerized me. And I imagined the person who lived in that space to be grounded during the week but bohemian and whimsical on the weekends.
