Some of you might have seen a post from yesterday regarding an invitation I made:
DIY invitation – too colourful?
My question was simply “Is it too colourful?”. Not only did you tell me that it was ok the way it was, your responses were so amazing that I went out and invested in a box of water soluble pencils! It took me two hours to find them, as FI is still in the states and I have no ride, but it was worth it – I had so much fun making a more proper sketch for the final invitation! I decided to go with sort of an art nouveau feeling to it – and here’s the first draft.
FI has approved from California, so now I’ll sit down and make the real invitation plus the other inserts. I will post it as soon as it’s ready. Thanks to all of you for making me feel like I wasn’t crazy trying to paint it myself!

This is even prettier than your first one! I like how the colors are balanced. Your green is a nicer shade. That mat works better too!

@imabridesmaid: Thank you! It definitely looks better with a darker mat instead of the patterned I used for the first draft – that was too busy. For the final version I’m thinking about leaving out the daisies and just stick with the blue flowers and the poppies.

@eocenia: They are not too colorful at all. I think you should leave the flowers as is, you only have 4 colors on their (blue, red, green, and yellow) They are absolutely beautiful. I painted my own invitations and they had about 12 colors, ha! 🙂

@MrsArtsy: Thank you! I know they’re not crazy colourful, but I initially thought about making them in just blue ink. Now I feel confident that colour is the way to go! Would love to see your invitations, have you posted them here at weddingbee?

@eocenia: I haven’t posted them yet. I probably will when I finish putting them all together.
