This last month some talented friends of mine have been creating with the latest Echo Park Paper Collection – Yours Truly, that I designed for them. I am always amazed by the creativeness of others as they take these products to the next level of design.
I am often asked about where I come up with designs and how they are translated into paper. I thought I would share one of my favorites with the Yours Truly Collection. The Rose Blossom paper shown below was created from a vintage rose wall paper that I found. I worked to intertwine the roses just right and added the bit of today’s modern influence with the soft grid print in the back.
On the reverse of this paper is a classic text pattern…want to know a bit of a secret about all the text papers I design? There is always a hidden message somewhere to my sweet husband and even to some friends and family occasionally. This paper is a bit different though. As I created the paper using snippets and phrases from soldiers letters past and present to their family’s back home I made sure to add a hidden letter from my incredible husband, Jason. I was lucky to have his sweet words written from our anniversary last year when he “hacked” my Facebook page and wrote on my wall for all my friends and family to see. I really do have a Yours Truly in my life!
Look for the hidden messages in past papers and see what you can find!
