In honor of the birth of our first born, and I think just because he wanted to, Mr. H brewed up our own special batch of beer. It was finished this past weekend, so Mr. H was able to bottle it up before the babe was born. Now it's sitting in our den, doing whatever it needs to do in the bottle for the next week or so, and then it'll be ready for consumption! Just in time to celebrate the arrival of our little girl with friends and family! Of course, a special beer needs a special label, so I was tasked to create one. We're both fond of the Art Nouveau style, and I knew exactly what colors I wanted in the label.
I used Prismacolor colored pencils
I think it's absolutely perfect! I chose green to go along with the beauty of the August birthstone, peridot, and I surrounded the baby with beautiful pink and purple gladiolus, the flower of August. I used a classic Art Nouveau font, threw in a stork, and added some peacock details! And voila! A gorgeous piece of art work to place on a special brew to commemorate an important event.
