Artistic Philosophy

Reality has limits but our imagination does not, so let it run free and your creativity will flourish.

Imagine, create and inspire; if I can do these 3 things I am contented.

A little tip to save money.  Use white or ivory crochet thread and make up your flowers, then alter the colour to match your card etc using spritzers or promarkers/whisper pens etc.  Add colours from the center out, add it just to the edges or even in veins to create a verigated look. 
Don't worry if you leave bits of white/ivory it gives it character and a distressed look also.
