About Kristy @ Momental Designs

Welcome to week two of my Muddy Brushes, Fresh Ideas post.  Read more about the inspiration and last week’s post here.

I am loving Maddy’s samples this week.  Jessica (my fantastic studio manager) and I collaborated on two versions illustrated in pen and ink of her bouquet flowers.  One focuses on an iris as the focal point and the other an anemone.   When Maddy first contacted me, she was completely enamored with a black and white look but wanted her wedding invitation design to have life and personality while avoiding an overly stuffy or rigid look.

The sketchy, linear illustration style seems to fit Maddy’s vision perfectly.  I particularly like the long, graceful stems of each flower, how they almost cease to look like flower stems and more like simple sweeping lines pushing the eye upward towards each bloom.
