Wise Words: Slowly

Our wedding plans are well under way and its all getting very exciting!
I've made a list of all the things I want to design for the wedding, and its looking quite long! Think invites, table numbers, order of the day, posters etc.
This week I've made a start on some illustrated quotes which will form part of the table centre pieces (along with flowers and candles of course)
I don't want to share everything here until after the wedding but I thought I'd share one of them as a little preview! This one features a lovely quote from one of my favourite books 'The Fault in Our Stars"...

Over & Over: From Russia

Continuing with the series of illustrations inspired by our trip to the Baltics, today I have the first set of patterns based on mosaics and tiles in the Church of the Savior on Blood. 
These ones are inspired by a beautiful pattern on the ceiling above the shrine.

Norwegian Folk

Today I have another set of illustrations inspired by my recent trip to the Baltics.
These ones are all inspired by our day at the Norwegian Folk Museum. I've illustrated a series of 5 of the buildings from the museum, and added decoration in the form of patterns we saw in embroidery, on clothing etc.

Postcards from Bruges

Today I have the first of hopefully many posts featuring illustrations inspired by my recent trip to the Baltics (you can read more about it and see the photos here, here and here.)
These three illustrations are based on photos I took on our day in the picturesque town of Bruges. Its quickly becoming one of our favourite places to visit (and not just because of the chocolate) and we can't wait to go again in October (we have a little trip planned for a family celebration)

Have you been to Bruges? What did you think of it?
Next up will be a series inspired by our day at the Norwegian Folk Museum.
