I really can't believe my oldest is turning three next month. It's makes me happy and sad at the same time, I guess all of these milestones do that to us parents. Focusing on the joy though and that brought to mind rainbows. Addy loves her Violet toy that reads stories to her and one of the stories is about a rainbow party so a rainbow party was born. I took Z with me on a hunt for birthday invites but I couldn't find anything so I decided to design my own.

I sketched out the design on regular computer paper, then I drew the placement (lettering and rainbow) on 5"x7" watercolor paper with a soft pencil. I painted it and refined some areas, then it was time to scan it in and print.

I love how they turned out, maybe this will become a new tradition.
