Mediterranean Olives Birth Announcement

I’m partial to this baby announcement I designed for Stephanie and Dean* because inspiration is right outside my window; I live on a hillside where there’s always at least one—if not a hundred—olive trees in sight. Olive trees have become one of the distinctive emblems of our life on the Mediterranean.

The olive pattern in the background started out as a simple branch that I painted in Photoshop.

I then repeated the olives on a roughly painted background of desert-inspired colors.

With a few Photoshop filters (including my favorite, rough pastels), the background turned into this:

    Hi Mojan!
    I am in love with this birth announcement! We are looking for something like this for our son’s birth announcement. I wasn’t able to find your email or a way to order work from you; do you still do birth announcements? Please contact me if so. Thank you!

    Allegra, I have been MIA for a while. I will send you an e-mail to see if you still need a birth announcement. Sorry for the delay.
