I finished making this wedding guest book yesterday for some friends of mine in Nashville who are tying the knot next month. To personalize their book, I included a portion of Anna and Troy's lovely wedding invitations in an embossed cutout in the front cover.
Their wedding colors are a vibrant mix of warm tones, so the bride-to-be selected a coral handmade lokta paper for the covers of the book and an orange lokta paper with shimmering gold brushstrokes for the guards, which are seen along the spine of the book. And for a playful surprise when you open the book, the endsheets are made from a paper with a bold orange and magenta flower print.
Anna is an artist with exceptional taste, and it was fun working together to create this book. While she was visiting my studio, I pulled out all of my decorative paper options that matched her color scheme and she immediately gravitated toward that papers shown here. I love the way this book turned out, and I can't wait to see how all of the other details for her wedding come together.
