I’m completely taken with the work of Austin, Texas based artist, Leah Duncan. Her illustrations and pattern work are just beautiful — light, organic, with a touch of whimsy. And I totally want the owl!
Check out the limited edition prints available at Leah’s Etsy shop, and see more of her illustration and pattern work here.
Leah also creates custom invitations and stationery at Lulu Paper, so be sure to head over there for much gorgeous eye candy.

I’m enjoying Studio MIKMIK’s first series of Gocco printed Pattern Studies note cards. Series One is called Saltaire in Stone and is inspired by the Italianate architecture found within the UNESCO World Heritages village of Saltaire, West Yorkshire, UK. The village contains archways, columns, and stone flowers that can be seen in this series of prints. Seeing these patterns reminds me of the ancient history and classics courses that I took in college.

I can never get enough when it comes to letterpress wedding invitation designs, and I’m loving Buffalo, New York based French Press’ 2009 Wedddings line, which includes two designs from Freshly Blended Press:

How adorable are these letterpress baby invitations from Dingbat press?! I just love the little sharks and butterflies. I’m also digging the letterpress note cards below, also from Dingbat, that feature the same kid-friendly types of illustrations. So cute.

I always look forward to see what’s new at Elum, I thought I’d share some drool worthy custom letterpress work from their portfolio. I can’t get over how much I’m loving the buttery yellow, rusty red/orange, and sky blue color combo, not to mention the design, on the top left invitation below:
