Wedding "Save the Date" Bookmarks
I’ve always considered wedding stuff to be a little out of my line, but when I got engaged to Doodle she really wanted me to do all the stationery for the wedding (save the date, invitations, thank you cards, etc) and she wanted it to be hand drawn. She really likes the walnut ink and pen landscapes I do, so that set the theme for the whole series. The bottom image is the original art work, which was cropped to fit the bookmark dimensions (8″ X 2″) for the front. The back is a cropped detail of the front with a reduced opacity to make an interesting background without competing with the text. The subject is the bridge at Eagle Fern Park out in rural Clackamas County, it’s a beautiful little patch of old growth forest that has been a destination of my family for as long as I can remember.
