A cute little A6 print, with your favourite rune on it ... if you're into runes, hey let me know which one you need made to support your intentions.
If you're new to runes, they are essentially a form of alphabet dating back to the Norse/Viking times, they used them to tell fortunes, provide protection and even cast spells. I like to use them in a manifesting/affirming way, for example the symbol for 'wealth' may be appropriate to hang above the desk of your new start-up business, as a motivational artwork, that serves as both a pretty thing to look at, and if you believe in it - to bring you fortune. There are runes associated with fertility, luck,
In it's simplest terms, to me, a rune is a visual prompt for a desire/wish that you are manifesting.
SO WHAT ARE YOU MANIFESTING?
Tips to newbies: have a little Google, see if anything resonates, then let me know and I'll make it up for you. Otherwise let me know what you're looking for support with, and I'll suggest something... perhaps what you need is a SIGIL (more info here).
Anyway, these arorable little postcard size prints are made to order using the cyanotype process. This basically means that I'll take a piece of card which I've treated with a light-sensitive photographic solution, and arrange a mix of flower petals, pollen and other bits of nature in the shape of your chosen rune on top of it. When this is exposed to the sunlight (or a UV bulb when it's not so sunny), the flowery bits block the chemical reaction of the sun hitting the paper - when washes, where the sun hit becomes blue and the shadows are preserved as the paper colour... pretty cool.
So, choose sunshine and flowers for your wall, desk or journal decor!
Paper colours: pink or off-white fleck
The artwork is approx. A6, and is sold unframed
Option to upgrade & add 24ct gold leaf embellishment.

RUNES A6 cyanotype (postcard size)
Cyanotype is a photographic technique dating back to the 1800s - it is a method of capturing shadows on a light-sensitive page: when sunlight/UV light is introduced, areas of shadow remain the white of the page, and areas touched by the light undergo a chemical reaction, transforming into beautiful shades of blue once washed.
Much like how flowers of the same variety grow in their own unique ways, cyanotypes are all unique, even when created in the same way, with the same tools - that's the magic of the cameraless photography process, it's always a bit of a surprise outcome, and that's why I love it!
It is normal for these artworks to incur some small dents along the way due to the washing/processing techniques; these may have been cut off, so your print will be slightly smaller than A4/A3, or they may have been left in situ as part of the character and history of the piece. Every effort is made to ensure the best outcome for each artwork.
