The Artistic Duo.

My brother and sister-in-law rock. They are both super creative and artsy and when Ted and I saw this really cool rock-poster style wedding invitation, I knew exactly who to ask to come up with something creative like it.



I showed Mindy the picture and explained that we'd love to have something like it for our wedding, perhaps to display at the reception or to have people sign in lieu of a guest book. My birthday is coming up, and this present arrived on my doorstep today:




I can't even describe how awesome this is. It's beyond perfect. I love it, love it, love it! I have yet to talk to Mindy, so I have no idea how she created it. Teaguer did the framing apparently, which is gorgeous as well. I've had wedding on the brain all day, so it was very fitting to come home to the perfect wedding accessory! Our very own poster! Thanks guys.

That is beautiful!! They look like love birds, but also a little like a peacock, or even a little Polish chicken!!

I built it in Adobe Illustrator - it's a layered mess of color, paint brush effects, the birds, some Victorian scrolly thing, vector flowers, paint spatters, and overall "grunge" ;)

The birds were a vector image bought from istock and then heavily edited: http://www.istockphoto.com/file_closeup/special_days_holidays_and_festivals/valentine_s_day/valentine_cards/2720610_bird.php?id=2720610

I had a good time making it, it's not often I get to do something trendy and fun like that, especially for someone I love!
