A walk through my garden... where creativity blooms

A walk through the garden can provide a handful of flowers and leaves that can fuel the creative process.

Create with what you have in environment. Look closely and experiment. Inspiration is everywhere if we choose to see it. 


What can a few leaves become? A singular flower? A gift tag, a greeting card, a work of art? A few hammered flowers on and old tee can become a treasured textile. 

A handful of coreopsis flowers will be used to create hammered flower prints on fabric.

Freshly picked cosmos flowers are ready to bring a little magic to fabric and paper. 

 Make a statement with flowers! Turn a simple greeting card in to a work of art, to be cherished by the recipient and not tossed. 

Gift tags are soaked in natural color. Colors can then be shifted with the use of simple ingredients like citrus and baking soda to extend the color palette.
