It has been a really busy four months for all of us Minted Artists. Since April, we have poured our hearts and souls into the concepting and design of greeting cards inspired by the most wonderful time the year. With a couple more holiday design challenges to go, I have participated in six out of six of them and submitted a total of 33 designs. From watercolor painting, to sketching, to hand lettering, to illustration, I have really enjoyed working on each of my holiday card designs and I am truly proud of the final product. A big thanks to my dear husband and our sweet boy for helping me making this goal of mine a reality.
This is one of the art challenges I have been waiting for so anxiously since I joined Minted. West Elm has amazing and modern products for young couples like Marek and I. Having one of my designs sold in their stores would be an honor to say the least.
I'm so happy to finally share with the world one of my designs that won an Editor's Pick award during the "A is for Art" challenge for Minted. "Name Initials" is a really dear art piece for me since it was designed thinking of the the love of my life Luke, my one year old son, and my beautiful baby niece who I adore.
The focal point of this art piece is the child's first name initial which has a subtle watercolor treatment I painted especially for this challenge. The child's name is displayed right under the initial in a simple elegant typeface. It's available in 5 colorways to match your little one's room or nursery color palette.
