Ben's Airplanes

Last month I was commissioned to do a mural of airplanes on a 3 year old boy's bedroom wall. I haven't done many murals in my career but was very excited to get this commission for such a great family. I started with a few sketches and then transfered the outline using an old school classroom overhead projector.

Im pretty happy with the final result, let me know what you think!

I learned a few tips for next time 1)prime all areas with white paint 2)mix mass quantities of largest area colors before starting.


Pink, Green and Brown

The wedding I just completed is the largest order Bloom has completed yet. 220 invitations, 240 envelopes, 220 rsvp postcards, 220 directionals as well as return address and address labels. I had a great time designing these for Ann and Kyle who will wed in June. Its always wonderful helping a couple to find their vision when they aren't quite sure what they are looking for but know they haven't found it yet. They came to me with a color scheme and general idea but allowed me to have the creative license for the rest. I'm happy with how they turned out, what do you think?

All location information has been blurred for the bride and groom's privacy.

A Bloom favorite... Blogs

I read a lot of blogs, I would say Im a blog junkie. I enjoy looking at pictures and reading about new ideas and old ideas reinvented. Lately I'm always looking for a new blog involving design, stationery, weddings, clothing, whatever has pretty pictures and interesting information (thats what I am trying to do with this blog). My new favorite wedding resource is a blog called Style Me Pretty, The Ultimate Wedding Blog. This blog is packed with pictures from real weddings, resources for brides, and sometimes just cool stuff. If you are a bride to be or know someone who is, take a peek, I promise that you will see atleast one idea for your wedding that you would want to use. There are DIY ideas, classy weddings, fancy weddings, casual weddings, you name it they cover it.

Ive added this one to my daily dose of blog reading and find myself sucked in every time!
For all of you blogging brides or internet planners, which blogs do you suggest as either great reads or great resources?
