Project Inspiration: Watercolor

I've started working on a few watercolor projects for friends and have found some really interesting, clever ways to use the medium.  Although I've played around with watercolor many times, it's always good to take a look at what others are doing.  The two invitations below both caught my eye.  Both are so unique and the artists' ability to keep the paint from not bleeding and so crisp is really impressive.

The image used for this invitation was based off the couple's engagement photos.  The artist is Ashley Hoiland, the couple's cousin.  The portrait is sweet, modern, and memorable.

Swiss Cottage Designs and Love, Jenna collaborated and produced this gorgeous save the date.  The watercolor envelope liner is the client's grandmother's artwork, how special is that?!  Her signature is even visable.  And the calligraphy really is a beautiful contemporary compliment to the art.
