A few months ago, Emily Wren had a gorgeous concept for a photo shoot, and I was thrilled to be included as part of the vendor line-up! She was inspired by Filippo Minelli's series "Silence & Shapes" that uses colored smoke bombs in landscape photos. We wanted to use the colored smoke in a softer way -- letting it bring color into some bridal looks we put together.
I loved dreaming up a way to bring an ethereal, smoky quality to paper while keeping the colors light and soft. I created a background with a layered wash of silver and gray tones. To keep the writing style soft and dreamy, I skipped my usual nibs and did brush calligraphy instead. The separation of watercolor-like tones was so fun!
It was so fun to collaborate with so many talented teams! Thanks for including me.
