Watercolor World

In my quest to navigate the world of blogging I have found lots of great sources for information and inspiration. My favorite find so far is, The Creative Market. You know that feeling when you walk in a store and you are just so overwhelmed by beautiful things you almost get dizzy. Well my first trip to this website was like that.

This is were I found the blog template that I decided to use for Mac & Lucille. There are so many great digital files you can download for fonts, templates and website, that I may be changing this blog every few months just so I can download something new.

What I really love are all the watercolor graphics and fonts that you can down load. But I guess the question is who isn't in love with watercolor right now? This one I have had on my pin board for months.

My only regret is that I didn't find this website sooner. I got married 2 years ago and when I couldn't find the stationary I wanted, apparently I was a bit ahead of the watercolor curve, my soon to be husband said, "You can do that babe."
Well he may as well have just dared me to do it. I set about a journey of painting, scanning, editing and printing that would have made most people give up and order the expensive invites from Minted.
I would have, but you know budgets get in the way of the best laid plans. So anyway I ended up with custom invites courtesy of LDunn.

I was pretty happy with the results and I guess it was good practice for my current venture, which definitely includes way more scanning, editing and printing. Thanks babe!
