Campesi First Anniversary Hand Lettered Paper Gift

Remember that post from a couple weeks ago where I took some pictures of this beautiful couple for their first anniversary? Well, I wasn't done with them quite yet...

Maggie actually came to me a month or so ago and told me that she wanted the lyrics to their First Dance song (When I Fall in Love by Nat King Cole) lettered on a photo of her and Mario for his Paper Anniversary present. Adorable, right?

After I edited the photos, Maggie and I agreed that this photo of the two of them worked best since there was space around them for lettering. Maggie wanted an 11x14" print, so I resized the photo and printed it out. Then I took some tracing paper and marked off where they were and the borders of the photo. After that, I took a pencil and sketched out the lyrics! Once I had that placement down, I used my trusty Tombow Fudenosuke Hard Nib Brush Pen and inked everything in.

Once everything was inked in, I popped it on the photo and removed the background so you could read the lyrics. Then I got it printed and Mags gave it to Mario on Monday! Happy Anniversary, you two! I hope y'all had a wonderful time celebrating. :)

This was my third Paper Anniversary gift I've made & its becoming one of my favorite projects. If you have any first year of marriage gift needs, you know where to go!

Thanks for reading & stay beautiful.
