Postcard Picture Detail

The Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap

I recently blogged about the Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap, and received to my suprise through the post a card from Greece. Lovely interpretation of the theme 'Bloom'.

My postcard followed the theme using a limited colour choice, focusing on the idea of gardening in bloom.

The tag is laser engraved leather and reads:

"gardening is the art that uses flowers and plants as paint,
and the soil and sky as canvas."
Elisabeth Murray

Lovely quotation linking together the theme of gardening and art.

Wise Words

"Some were budding designers, some had degrees in product design and some had studied textiles. It's sad how much creative talent is hidden away behind till points, locked away in stockrooms and banished to the graduates' graveyard of British retail!."
Gok Wan

Working for Habitat similar to Gok Wan I have made great friends, and met some incredibly talented creative individuals. As the legacy of Habitat across the UK rapidly draws (sadly) to a close it is a new chapter guys lets put our creative brains to valuable use.
