Z's party was in February (she has 2 bottom teeth now) and I think I needed some recovery time because I never posted this! Now I just finished A's invite for her party this weekend. I've also been busy with switching this site from Wordpress to Squarespace. I love it by the way, but I digress.
I have started a little tradition for the past 3 years of making my kiddos birthday invitations. It's fun coming up with something original do it yourself illos for them, keepsakes forever. We'll see how long I can keep it up. For this birthday it was all about mermaids. I made some rough sketches of different mermaid characters, then designed all of the elements in my small graph paper journal. I scanned it in, blew it up and transferred to watercolor paper with my light table.
Then I painted, scanned it in again and printed from Photoshop. I loved the way they turned out and the party was so fun! Love my baby girls so much.
