‘Your Element’. Earth, fire, wind, water - what's your true nature? Are you grounded, fiery, impulsive, or rational? We can all be earthly and celestial but there is always something that stands out. Finding your passion changes everything and we want to see you in your element. Show us what’s in your heart.A little unsure of where to start I took to my photos.

I have no shortage of nature shots, but I felt the ones that rang true to me were those of my time spent at the ocean or on walks in the woods here in Whistler, B.C. face book page, which has all the links to my work. Just click on the links there and it should take you directly to my scarves to vote.

It seems that competitions are the way to go to get your work out there and seen. I am not the competitive type. I have been a bit slow on the uptake here, deciding instead to concentrate on developing my style, working on my website and generally learning. I still have one module left of Rachael Taylors The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design and its all about getting yourself seen. Then this came along... Design a scarf to be sold through Anthropologie and Front Row Society?How could I possibly resist the chance of a little bit of me in Anthropologie? I just couldn't pass this one up with a clear conscience. You have to start somewhere! The theme - Elements - fire, wind, water, earth. We were given the mood board pictured above plus a brief description-
