My New Leaf

I just took on a brand new project for Eric’s cousin.  She’s getting married in August and asked me to design her Save the Date cards.  I jumped at the chance to try something new.  She filled me in on her inspiration for the wedding and I started painting designs in my sketchbook.  This is what I came up with yesterday.

Disappointing, right?  I really like owls, but this seems more like it should be an announcement for a 50th anniversary party.  Today I’m going to try moving in a different direction.  I’m just starting to get the hang of this, so hopefully I can come up with something that is as young and stylish as the happy couple.  Pray for me…I need it!

    I do indeed think the owls are cute…I love the seeming luminescence of the feathers, too…but nothing about owls says wedding, though maybe if the lady owl had a veil?

    Melody – my parents are celebrating their 30th Anniversary next year and I love all things owls – because they “Hoet” – so can I purchase this reject to use for that event?

What are you thinking?
