Watercolor background=Shower of Blessings!

This morning we found some time to do some art! This is going to be the background for our Ketubah for our wedding. A ketubah is a wedding contract that originates from Judaism. Today there are many different ones available even for interfaith ceremonies. We found inspiration on the internet after seeing the prices we decided to create our own. We will only be using part of this huge piece of paper.

This was done with watercolors and salt. This will then have calligraphy done and also a little collage work. We had an original idea but like all art work it always changes so we will see how this evolves. We meet with the calligraper on December 29th and all our texts that we want and have put together are ready to go. Will post as things come to life on this project.


  1. What a beautiful background you created! This is going to be so special.

  2. oh my Hoppa this is going to be such a striking piece of work I would love to see it up close and personal but.....- I just adore your idea and using salt has had a fabulooous effect on the paint hasnt it??
    Its just beautiful
    love n hugs bear xoxoxoxo
