Hey, brides! If you’re looking at different ways you can save a little money while wedding planning, one great way to do that is by creating your own wedding invitations. It might sound a little overwhelming, but with our new online class, we’ve made it easy for you to create your own wedding day designs like a pro!
By the way, did we mention that creativity helps relieve stress? ;)
In this robust 90-minute course, you’ll learn how to design your wedding-day collection by focusing on the main attraction — the invitation. Your amazing instructor, Valerie McKeehan, who has her own designs available on Mixbook, will be walking you through her process to create a beautiful and elegant wedding invitation from beginning to end.
Part of this course will focus on designing with the Procreate app, so make sure you have your iPad Pro and an Apple Pencil handy. It’s a simple way to design without needing to have access to the Adobe Creative Suite on your computer. Plus, with the pressure sensitivity of the Apple Pencil, everything you create will truly be hand drawn by you!
The first part of the class will cover a basic overview of the Procreate app and some of Valerie’s favorite tools and brushes. Then, using a reference photo, you’ll practice illustrating florals. And if this sounds a little intimidating, don’t worry! Valerie will guide you through this process to make sure you end up with a beautiful floral design.
After you’ve finished your floral illustrations, you’ll start working on incorporating your hand lettering into your wedding collection. You’ll think about your invites, save the dates, RSVP cards, and more to draw out the various hand-lettered elements you’d like to include in these designs.
All of this is to build up to a collection of digital stickers that you can upload into Mixbook. And that’s where the magic happens! Once you’ve uploaded everything into the Mixbook Editor Tool, you can start designing your wedding collection. It’s as easy as dragging and dropping!
Following Valerie’s direction, you’ll get an overview of how to design a floral wedding invitation, RSVP card, save the date, and thank you card to create a cohesive, beautiful, and personalized wedding collection that your guests will adore!
But wait? What if I don’t have an iPad Pro or the Procreate app? We’ve got all of your questions answered here.
