Great Arrow Graphics, the greeting card company that makes every card by hand using traditional silkscreen methods sent to me a box of my latest designs. It’s always exciting to see the finished products and hold them in my hands. I think they look great, feel great and even have a lovely smell of fresh ink! Let me know what you think and leave a comment. I will choose at random, three people and they will receive a nice sampler gift package of my cards. Not just the ones you see here but for other occasions as well!
Going strong for a couple of years now is the terrarium trend. Miniature gardens behind glass sitting on your coffee table were very popular in the 1970’s. I recently visited the Descanso Gardens Sturt Haaga Gallery in La Canada, California to see the “Dangerous Beauties” exhibit featuring artwork and plants.
Part of the exhibit features examples from the plant world of the spiny, carnivorous and poisonous kind and terrariums!
Though I may not run out and buy a terrarium kit I want to point out how this trend translates to imagery on items we buy, such as greeting cards.
Terrarium diecut shaped cards from Blas Bleu. I’m going to hit the drawing board soon and see what I can come up with. Stay tuned!
