Tree Of Life by IvyNightwind Tree Of Life by IvyNightwind
After having searched high and low and everywhere in between I could not find a tree of life that I liked or that looked simple enough without being to simplistic.

Finally I decided to draw up my own. The original reference for this was a necklace on but that was inside a circle and had no roots. This is what I finally came up with and I'm in love with it.

This is soon to be a tattoo and has become the main symbol we are using in our wedding.

Please do not steal my work.

I see that the last comment from Ivy was about 3 years ago in 2014 but still I put in this request for permission to use the image on a Tombstone - my own. and that may happen sooner than later... who knows? (given my heart condition). It's just that it seems to encapsuate the Celtic heritage I claim along with all its symbolism and I'm guessing ot will be straight-forward to 'set in stone'. Thanks.

I am seeking permission to use your tree of life design as an applique on church altar cloths for my small Presbyterian Church in northern Wisconsin.  The simplicity of the design is perfect and the celtic design would be a tie-in with the Scottish roots of the Presbyterian Church.  I am doing the work as a donation and no sales transaction will take place.

Would you be willing to allow me to use your design as a reference for a stained glass window?  Thanks for your consideration.

Would you mind if I used this image, or something very similar, to decorate a felt envelope that I am making for a Yule card?

so very sorry I did not get a chance to respond to this in time!!!  I have been without internet for a while now! I would not mind though I think it is a bit late. Sorry again!

I there miss Ivy, I didn't end up using this design for my Yule cards but I did base a component of a piece of jewelry which you can see here. I included credit to you as well as a link back to your deviantART page as well as directly to this image.

I would like to use this design to redraw for a logo for my best friends' psychology organization. Small family concern. Would you grant permission? We could,pay an honorarium. I love the simplicity and the symbolism.

you may use it for this purpose I would be honored! No need for pay of any kind since it will be used for an organization that will be doing good. :)

I love this! Could I use it as a reference for a woodburning I need to finish my nephew's toybox? I need something simpler than the traditional tree of life. Thank you.

Sure! I would be honored!

Do you mind if I use this for a reference for my own design?
IvyNightwind Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2011

Elfinwood Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2011
No problem! And thank you!

I love this design and I'd like your permission to use it as a tattoo. I, too, have had trouble finding the perfect tree of life design and this one seems to be just right!

I am very flattered that you like it so very much but honestly this was a very special tattoo for me. It has become the center piece for my wedding and a symbol of the love and trust my finance and I share.
