“She always puts every detail on her works! That was what I admire about her latest work on making a craft-fully wedding invitation for our lovely friend.”
Call her Ira! What a wonderful day spending time with her while she showed me the wedding invitation making process. The project that has been made for our closest friend.
Such a classy and elegant design she made for every piece of the invitation letters. I love the way she concerns about the detail that she puts into it, especially when she showed me how to make a font of alphabet manually.
By using a calligraphy marker as her special armor, a magnificent font finally came to the world! She made a calligraphic font because it was inspired by the background of the future bride who was originally came from one of the cities in West Java, Indonesia, called Cirebon.
The invitation was inspired by story of the future groom and bride who has a different background. The story was about the thing that they both love and the major they have taken when they were in college. One was from majoring in oceanography, and the future bride was from textile craft, which turned into a lovely design that most of the colors, fonts, and sketches were inspired by the bride’s father who is a Batik Designer in town.
This is the favorite one! Her hands were softly dancing on the paper, making a cutie font by using her calligraphy marker. Every fonts she made were scanned into a digital to compile with other sketches. Not only that, she made all the design by manually sketching it. She made layer by layers to make it easy when she was coloring the sketches in digital. No wonder how crafty she is! Respect!
Ta-da! These are the package of the wedding invitation letters!
Dusty pink and brown were perfectly matched. It looks very sweet yet still incredibly elegant, especially when she puts the signature of the couple; roses and waves.
It was very delightful for having the opportunity to know and learn the story behind her works. My day was fully charged by her heartwarming piece of art. I hope she can make me a future wedding invitation that is very suitable with me (guess I have to seek my future wife soon).
