One Paper. Two Wedding Collections

It all happened about a month ago: I found a strange dark emerald paper in a small stationary shop. I just was not able to go back home without a piece of it. Fascinated by the color and the texture, I suppressed my doubts about how I could actually write on such a textured surface. Somehow I'd figure it out later… Well, what I found is that this paper was not suitable for writing: it doesn’t hold the ink. I’ve spent many hours in attempts to find the perfect mixture, only to realize that nothing works and I have only half of that precious material left. Then I made my last attempt and wiped it with a wet dishcloth. And it did the trick! After this little cleaning procedure, I was finally able to write on this paper (it was still quite challenging due to the textured surface). Anyway, I’ve made a whole wedding invitation suite inspired by the Spencerian Script. Then I decided to create another one with a more expressive freestyle writing to match the whimsical character of the paper. Usually, I prefer not to go so wild with my calligraphy, but this time I just allowed myself to forget about the rules and find the flow. The end result may be quite hard to read. Still, it’s always worth trying!
