Grow Love

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
i fear
no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

Growing moss heart for Valentines Day

A growing moss heart to hang outside.

Ceropegia woodii will root and grow inside the heart .

Dressed with a few stems of heart shaped Ceropegia woodii that will continue to root and grow inside the moist moss.

Biodegradable copper mesh shape filled with moss.

It’s the ideal lasting design-gift for My Valentine to celebrate unending love.

Hang the moss heart outside in the shade to continue to grow.

Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
