baby girl birth announcement card fall

Outside my window the trees are turning yellow and red. The Vondelpark is filling up with an enchanting autumn scent. What a beautiful season to welcome a child into this world. While the leaves are falling, we celebrate the birth of Nora. A beautiful little daughter of a dear friend. Welcome to this world Nora!

Falling leaves & golden light

After a long stroll though the park, I nestle myself behind the dining table with my fineliner and water colors. Golden light is coming in through the balcony doors and covers the living room. I love this season. A few weeks ago, when I was looking for paper for our wedding invitations, I found some great cards in De Vlieger, a great paper store in Amsterdam. Really thick, off-white, with a slight texture. I bought a few, and quickly needed to go back for more, when I found out that I could use it for printing, but that it also holds up perfectly when when I use water color on it. It’s really niceto have a supply in the house, when a special moment like this comes along that needs to be celebrated!
