Floral Typography Collage


This is a project I've been working on while I've been away in Austria. Once I'm home in Australia I am looking forward to taking it to the printers and making these available in my shop as postcards and prints. It's probably terrible business to post them so early, but honestly, I'm just in love with them (which is so rare to love your own work!) So I had to share them with you all. 


I spent a lot of cold, rainy autumn evenings searching the internet for old botanical illustrations that fell under the creative commons licence, so that I could freely use them...


...Then it was rather a slow, headache-inducing process of editing out the background of each image (the originals were all scanned from old books with brown/yellow pages)...


... then I used layer masks to edit in and layer the text. I created a variation with black backgrounds and white text as well. 


Along with the 'Be Brave' design, the lemon design below is definitely one of my favourites!

Keep an eye out on my Instagram to hear when I launch the printed versions...
