    Craig Cramer is an ex-magazine editor, plant lover and a bit of green thumb. He runs a personal blog called Ellis Hollow. Every month, he creates the most incredible scans of his plants and flowers, which he calls Bloom Day Scans. I could seriously spend a whole day absorbed in these powerful images – so much depth of colour and dynamic movement in each one. The scans appear more like beautiful paintings rather than something created using a scanning bed.

    Craig recently started experimenting with his images by creating kaleidoscopic floral patterns (below). So clever. I would love to see textiles made from these.

      So beautiful! And completely feeding my obsession with flowers.

      Have you seen this plastic bag series using a similar technique? http://www.huangxu.net/a/Works/ I’m guessing you probably have, but hey, worth revisiting I say!
