So, as of last night I am officially engaged! It's so strange when I stop and think about it, and it will take a while for me remember to call Devon my "fiance" rather than my "boyfriend"! It's absolutely perfect timing for... ENGAGEMENT ANNOUNCEMENTS!
Confused? Well, I'm taking another letterpress class at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts starting next week, and now I have a great project to work on. I wanted to do an engraved-style announcement since I don't have a huge amount of time before the class starts, and pre-existing art will cut down my design time drastically. I went to the antique book store today but couldn't really find what I wanted, so I just did a few minutes of Googling and found this amazing disk of engraved floral and animal illustrations. I bought it immediately for current and future use - at $95 bucks, there was really no reason not to (it may seem like a lot, but is actually dirt cheap for as many high res images as you're getting royalty free). I know I wasn't the only person looking, so I hope this helps!
