In my sketch book- holiday at the beach

In my sketch book- A new series I will be doing to share a bit more of my creative process with you.

I am super excited about launching this series! Before each event I style comes a sketch, and from that sketch come all my plans and projects. I am working, a very talented artist for this series. I completely adore how he brought my vision for our holiday at the beach to life. Do you sketch at all? It will be fun to find out together how much the actual event mirrors the ideas above.

    How charming! The snow angels are an especially nice touch :)

  2. Love this Vicky! I’ve been sketching a few of my set-ups, but they certainly don’t look as nice as this. Can’t wait to see it in real life!

    It is actually the Pacific Beach Pier- we ended up having the party to the north of it though because of a seaweed/dump truck fiasco- so we will all have to imagine that part of the sketch being flipped:)
