With all that’s been going on lately, my dreams have been more vivid than ever. So I revoked the power of an old tradition between my grandfather & I & started noting a dream journal of sorts again. In a recent dream journey, a woman told me “Beyond the forest path, there lies another world.” So that was the inspiration behind this title & that is exactly the direction I followed.
A Break from our usual SleepySundays, some updates.
I am working on moving over quite a few both new & old designs to our new Snapping Turtle gallery here at CardCastles.
For anyone that’s been away for a while, Snapping Turtle is no longer a separate entity from the site, we have merged the two. Snapping Turtle is sort of the mother company to CardCastles designs and we are working the rest of that out this year. We are also in the middle of a physical move so that means, yes, our offices will be moving as well. This July is our official move date.
As always contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
This design was inspired by a moment this week where the wind kicked up for a few hours despite the beautiful warm weather. I was on the phone but stopped to notice this area where a flowery tree was shedding its petals on top of a patch of dandelions due to the wind. What a gorgeous sight it was. It stayed with me for the rest of the day so I decided to turn it into a few new designs. This is the early concept for one of them.
The ocean has long been a companion of mine throughout life. With the weather changing and my son getting older, he is starting to show interest in some of these same aquatic activities. I’ve been shuffling around more home decor and greetings designs, some of which have to do with children’s rooms and seasonal decorative pieces. This all had me thinking of underwater themes I’ve done in the past. These sea turtles started from sketches, but I plan to have a few more of them appear in some of my newer designs these next few months.
