On Etsy since 2013

Pre-designed, Customized & Personalized Typographic wall art for all occations, thoughts and expressions.

HELLO And welcome to Annabelle Rose Designs!
I have always LOVED letter forms, typography and design and creating beautiful images and meaningful memories for others to enjoy is my passion.
My shop story begins in the summer of 2013 when I decided to make a ‘marriage plaque’ for my nephew and his new bride-to-be to give at their wedding shower. They were a bit overwhelmed with surprise at the personalized piece that included their names and date of the wedding along with some very special words about the many gifts that marriage brings. The reaction from them and others who saw the piece inspired me to continue with more designs.
After crafting several pieces for friends and acquaintances I decided it was time to try expanding, but first I needed a name for myself! Almost immediately I thought of combining the names of my grandmother’s, Annabelle & Rose. Lovely! AnnabelleRoseDesigns was born. I then began listing my creations on Etsy and selling in local stores. My first Etsy order was for 15 cheese boards!! (Crazy Happy Dance :) ) I was beyond thrilled! I felt that was a sign that I needed to continue.
The ideas never stop coming ~ from both my own imagination and from others ~ and so I've put my energies into perfecting those abstract ideas and making them reality. These works are my unique designs as the artist of AnnabelleRoseDesignsTM and each is produced individually one at a time ~ no 2 are alike. The wooden plaques are produced on a wood ‘canvas’ with a framed back that gives the piece a nice 3/4” profile. Each piece can be hung on a wall or stand on a table or shelf. Each piece goes through a 6-step process. It all begins with the design of course, which in most cases is computer generated and allows me endless creativity in developing my designs. The design is then printed on paper & transferred to the painted board using one of 2 current techniques that I have perfected. The application of the techniques I use causes the distressing you see on the finished pieces and is virtually uncontrollable, which adds to the unique charm, authenticity and style of the piece. Then the edges of the board are painted & distressed, holes are drilled for hanging & standing and finally the piece is clear coated for protection.
I guess my favorite pieces to create are the personalized wall plaques. People love to see their names in print and evolving into art! They adore these special creations celebrating their marriages, anniversaries, babies, milestone birthdays, special people & places, and more.
I thank God every day for my talents and gifts and the opportunity to share them with others. I hope you enjoy taking a look and consider giving me the opportunity to design or create something special for you. Thank you for visiting and taking the time to hear ’my story.’
All the best, Renée Rapanotti
