Happy Birthday, Baby!

Happy Birthday, Baby! - student project

Not a wedding fan but I love a good birthday party! This is my version if celebrating 30's.

Also, I used this opportunity to test paper and different styles.

Watercolor paper, black liner and a more realistic approach

Next, different watercolor paper, sepia liner and a more whimsical style

Mix media paper, black liner, looser

MIx media, brush pen, gestural

I think I like the first style better but the more gestural, suggested cake is a close second. What do you think? 

All in all, I enjoyed being immersed in this project for 2 hours. Thanks, Irina!
