Lettering by Sabrina Wong » Hand lettering, Calligraphy and Brush lettering

Emily asked me to help her produce some artwork based on her vows as a one year anniversary present for her husband. I used black watercolour and a small brush to letter part of their vows onto some A3 cardstock.

Here’s a close up – I’ve covered the work in plastic for the photograph because I was shooting this outside and didn’t want it to get dirty!

I really enjoy the variation in opacity that watercolour provides and I look forward to doing more brush lettering!

Just sent 70 placecards, 7 table numbers and 5 cake labels off to a client, it’s a nice feeling to send off the completed set altogether! The card for this project was from Collins Craft in Balcatta, chosen by Tara to match her slate-grey invitations. The card had a metallic-glittery sheen to it and I was asked to add gold calligraphy on top.

Here’s a selection of the placecards:

Here are some of the table numbers:

Next up are little cake labels. These were fun to write; sounds like there will be delicious variety of flavours at the wedding!

I’ll finish with a little shot of some of my materials below; you can tell which colour was used for this project ;)

Tara sent me an email; “Just a quick note to say that I love the cards!! They are all perfect! Thanks so much.”

I’m working on some sample marriage certificates to show you as well :)

I was so lucky to be a part of Alex and Nicci’s amazing wedding, as featured on the Hello May blog. I did a calligraphy Marriage Certificate and painted their favourite quote onto a backdrop of fruit crates:

I’m Sabrina, I live in Perth, Australia and this is my little calligraphy corner of the internet. I started calligraphy so that I would be able to do my own wedding stationery, but it has become a passion that I really enjoy. I’ll be adding samples of my work to this blog as I go – a few samples of my work are featured below.

I offer commissioned calligraphy work for things like marriage certificates and place cards for weddings.
