A stroll in the Park Güell

It is always inspiring to roam the streets of a city other than your home town. The people, the sights, the culture and colours all seem to add a certain element to your visit. During a recent weekend in Barcelona, nothing seemed more inspiring than wandering around Park Güell, an influential and colourful Gaudi creation. Gaudi was strongly influenced by the shapes of nature and often referenced them in his works. The multi-coloured mosaics found throughout the park add texture and stunning colour as you overlook the city of Barcelona beneath. Inspired by our visit to the Park, R+J created a mosaic-tiled notecard, hand-stitched along the top, allowing a message to be written inside.
