Wedding by the Sea

As I look outside and the sun is setting on the snow covered hills of Upstate New York, I’m longing for turquoise waters and a golden beach.  In the coming weeks I’m hoping to work on some nautical, beachy themed wedding invitations, but for now I’ll include a few inspirational photos that are getting my vision in focus.

Etsy Artisan Feature: Turquoise and Fuchsia

Turquoise and fuchsia are one of my favorite color combinations.  It reminds me of the beautiful serene seas of the Caribbean or the emerald green waters of Hawaii with pops of color of tropical flowers.  Take me there!  Here is some beautiful work from my Etsian teammates out there.  Let’s see what they’ve been up to.
