This tree makes a wonderful family heirloom! It is designed as an alternative to a traditional guest book at a wedding, or a lovely keepsake from a family reunion or holiday event.

The tree is a reproduction of my original ink and watercolor illustration, and has a distinctive hand drawn look. I used a sepia ink to draw the tree, and layers of watercolor to create the depth and texture that you see on the twisting branches. The text is added digitally and customized for you, then printed on a high quality matte photo paper.

The third photo (tree without any fingerprints) shows exactly how your poster will look, but you will have your own custom text. The final size is 16x20, and will slip nicely into a ready-made frame.

Wedding guests, or family members at an event, add a fingerprint to create the “leaves” of the tree, and sign their names below. One example shows a completed tree from an autumn wedding. I recommend using a few different ink colors; gold, red, orange, and brown work well for a fall tree. The other example shows a summertime tree, in progress, at a family reunion. A few shades of green (and even a light pink if you want spring blooms) look great on a spring or summer tree.

This listing is for a complete kit, and will come in a mailing tube with:

1. Your artwork, a 16x20 poster with your custom text
2. An instruction sheet for you, with information about inks, care, etc.
3. Directions for your guests, explaining how to add their marks, printed in a deep brown that matches the tree.
4. 3 Ink Pads (let me know if you want a fall or spring color scheme)
5. An ultra fine-point pen for signatures with permanent ink that will not smudge or bleed.

If you prefer to purchase just the poster (save money on shipping by purchasing pen and inks locally) with direction sheet, check my other listings! Please do not hesitate to convo me if you have any questions at all. Thank you!
