|Tuscan Party invitation by B.Nute productions**|
When my sister asked me to create an invitation for her "Tuscan inspired" birthday celebration at a winery, the first thing that came to mind was Italian Pottery. If you happen to go to her house, you'd know why this came to mind-- not only is she nuts about Tuscany (and Provence), her home echos this color palette and styling to a T.
To create this Tuscan Party invitation, I looked through several different Italian pottery patterns and then hand drew my own. Then I scanned and "painted" it on the computer. Of course, a little "muddled" pottery texture in the background adds to the effect.
What inspired you today?
