I have spent the last year taking my love of gardening and pressed flowers to a different place. I used to create cards with handmade paper and pressed botancials, called Garden Variety cards. But I got a little tired of the same old thing. I was trying to come up with a new idea when I came across a magazine that had the picture of a rooster made entirely of pressed leaves. It completely inspired me, but I love the human shape more, so I translated it into Petal People. This is my latest creation, a Santa Claus made entirely of pressed leaves and flowers (available in my Etsy shop at http://PulpArt.Etsy.com). I recently took him and printed him on cards for Christmas. Hope you find inspiration for your holiday artwork from my Santa.
