My Story is Art – Trellis Pattern for Envelopments, The Stationery

It’s been just over two months since we unveiled Trellis in our Martha Stewart Weddings ad and already there’s so much attention blossoming (pun intended) around Kristy Rice’s hand-painted artwork. With a team of talented photographers, models, calligraphers and stylists, Kristy produced a shoot for Green Wedding Shoes that showcased the newest Envelopments Pattern. From showstopping chandeliers to custom upholstered furniture, everything came to life in front of the camera.

As we made the final color selections for Trellis, we teetered between dozens of options but settled on a versatile palette of 1- and 4-color options that are perfect for a variety of events. As the artist behind the magic, we were truly inspired by Kristy’s take on 3 stationery suites. Learn more about Kristy’s creativity by reading her recent blog post on Trellis.

Wrapping up my Behind the Scenes look at Trellis Shoot today. To get caught up with all the lovely Tangerine Tango Wedding Inspiration, check herehere and here!! To celebrate the launch of Envelopments’ newest pattern designed exclusively from my hand painted watercolors, I created three distinct stationery suites. Each is meant to show off a unique face of Trellis.

First up we have the modern take on Trellis with a hand drawn font, graphite scribbled envelope liner and watercolor washed backdrop. The Trellis layer even features extra detail added individually with pencil.

Next was the feature stationery suite seen throughout Trellis Shoot. The orange version of the pattern made a strong appearance in the Pocketfold holding all of Meant to Be’s Calligraphy’s gorgeous hand.

A silhouette of my favorite Trellis bloom was painted in juicy watercolor shades of raspberry and tangerine.

Lastly, I wanted to show off Trellis’ more sophisticated side. A palette of gray and blush combined with grayscale version of Trellis bloom painted with sheer shimmer inks. Oh and the silver dupioni silk ribbon…oh love.

For place cards I revised the Trellis silhouette but painted this time in creamy white ink. Against the lunch bag-esque paper the artwork popped.

Paper didn’t stop at invitations…Trellis blooms were meticulously cut to craft this all paper bouquet. All elements of the Trellis pattern were featured; paint spatter, watercolor stripes and detailed brushstrokes.

Another look at the place card on our custom paint spattered dinnerware!

Lastly and most importantly I need to thank the incredible team who made sure the vision came to life! From the stunning images to the impactful film and all the moments in between, I am forever grateful. I’ve said it before, but it is true. Making art with a group of creatives links you forever in a series of splendid moments where ideas are realized and artful passions indulged.
