More Baby Stuff

Below are the birth announcements I did for my Niece in February. She is so adorable! I loved making these and altering the photo's I took of her. She is growing fast and I am sure she will make her way into more of my designs.
I altered this picture the most. I had my bother-in-law hold Carlee and darkened the background. This can be done with most pictures as long has you have the patience. It created a nice effect.
This pic is kind of funny. She was not very happy with us trying to lay her down and take her picture. She looks a bit wrinkled haha but still very cute.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this! I think baby hands and feet are so cute.

This one I used a flower picture I had taken from actually one of her baby showers and the light coming in from the window really made the announcement stand out.
I love this one! I used fabric patterns to create the colorful announcement.

The Beginnings

It is amazing what has happened in the last year I am an aunt and now engaged! All of these transitions have shaped my future not only personally but professionally. It all began with a design for my sisters baby shower. Of course I had created designs before but never with photshop. I fell in love with it. For her baby shower I decided to play off her color scheme for the baby room and flamingos which was the theme she was going for. I pulled off color splotches and fabric patterns from the decor she was in love with and came up with a design that matched the room perfectly. I even created thank you cards to match. This really sparked my interest in design. Below is the decor she had picked out.

Here is the finished product. Colors were pulled from the picture above and I hand drew the flamingo and scanned it in. These invitations were actually cut to resemble a tag and yellow ribbon was added to the top.
