They’re a perfect gift to send to friends in the mail, but they’d also make great prints you could frame, if you don’t feel you could tackle the real thing. Quill and Fox also has a lot of cards perfect for various occasions, most of which include nature related things — like the Thank You Card and the Moon and Back Card.

Two of a Kind: Orange

For today’s Two of a Kind post, I just had to share these two beautiful images. They both have perfect shades of orange, which in nature is always so beautiful.

In the sunset photo, the orange is subtle and oh so dreamy and in this gorgeous stone, the orange is so bright and vibrant. Can you believe the stone is a painting?

[editor's note] For this week’s Type Tuesday, we’re featuring our very own friend and contributor Eva Black. View more of Eva’s exceptional work on her portfolio.

This piece was a project created while completing my Bachelor of Fine Arts at Biola University. The exercise’s objective was to create a sculptural or three-dimensional word based on various attributes of a well lived life. We ere also to convey the concept of our word within the context of the piece.

I chose to use baking ingredients such sugars, butter, eggs, oats, and flour to convey the word “Joy.” I started by choosing the typeface, Garamond, and cut the letterforms out in a stencil form. I then added my various ingredients to the stencil. It was messy, but I definitely had a lot of fun creating this piece!

Two of a Kind

1 - "At" by Rachel McCord / 2 - Commissioned embroidery by Annarack

Hi friends! This is my first post with Dearest Nature and I’m so excited to share these two beautiful pieces. Today’s Two of A Kind comes from photographer Rachel McCord and Textile artist Annarack. I had the honor of seeing Rachel McCord‘s piece, titled “At” in person where it was printed on plexiglass and mounted in a light box. The piece is so beautiful.

I was also drawn to Annarack’s Commissioned Embroidery with all it’s stunning little details and colors. I couldn’t help but think that Anna’s piece mirrored Rachel’s photo in color and texture.
