About this project

About SeaweedArt

I create a line of printed greeting by pressed seaweed collages. Currently I have two sets of assorted designs and I would like to expand my product offerings to include prints for home decor, holiday themed cards, journals and other stationery items. SeaweedArt was recently featured in the Santa Cruz Sentinel. 

Here are some greeting card designs I have planned for the holidays-- a "sea lettuce" Christmas tree and a "kelp" menorah. To create them I pressed seaweed onto paper, took a photograph and then digitally enhanced it to make it look like a tree or menorah. To learn more about how to press seaweed, please click here.

I need funding for product development that will cover the cost of graphic design, website development and printing. 

If I reach my goal of $15,000, the money will be spent as follows:

  • $3000 for graphic design
  • $3000 for website development
  • $9000 for printing

Below are examples of my original presssed SeaweedArt collages that will be given as rewards in exchange for your pledges.
