explore and gather outside

It’s the sea son to explore every thing around us, so go outside, join in, gather, share, relax and ma ke while the sun shines...

artist katie vernon

There’s so much more to flowers and plants than the decorative and olfactory pleasures they offer us–a subject explored by illustrator Katie Vernon in her beautiful Healing Wreaths paintings. Katie Vernon is a US-based illustrator who has spent most of her life in the Midwest but whose heart belongs in the mountains. Her inspiration comes from being a florist, working with alpacas, and living on a bus. She’s worked with Ikea, The Land of Nod, Hallmark, Oopsy Daisy, and Chronicle Books; and has been featured on American TV channel HGTV and online on Design*Sponge and Oh Joy!

Katie is also rather fond of her partner, daughter, and part-dingo dog. “Like most people, my background has…

pressing dried flowers

Combine traditional dr ied flowers with contemporary glass frames to create striking wall art that is a pleasure to create. Who wouldn’t want to have fresh flowers in their house at all times? To keep your home positively blooming all year round, it’s worth having a go at drying them. Fresh flowers can be kept for years with their colour intact by pressing them, which flattens the flowers as they dry. Pick flowers from your garden or gather wildflowers from a field. Flowers should be picked either in bud or as soon as they open, which is when the colour is best – and select ones with petals that haven’t been bruised, torn, damaged by insects, or wilted. Flowers with naturally flat faces, such as pansies, violets, or apple blossoms are easier…
