Be my valentine

Stepped away from the computer this week and loving a bit of pattern and texture making with some new watercolour inspired pieces.

This one was especially created for the Team at Believe Creative Studio and all the guest designers that have been working hard these last few months preparing for Indigo and as part of our valentine blog hop.

Hopefully you jumped over from the fabulous designer Jan Shepherd at Patternmuse (have you seen her portfolio – loving the tropical flowers) and as I end our little hop I hope everyone has a great Valentine’s day and wish Rosie and her team that are gearing up to go to Indigo with a fabulous booth display and gorgeous designs the best of times (visit Believe Creative Studio blog to read more about it and restart the hop) ..I know it will be a huge success!!

If you are going be sure to visit booth 5U51 in  Hall H5.  With love from the Believe Creative Studio design team.

Moving day again, so looking forward to settling in for Christmas and getting it ready for my family flying over – I’ll be right back after we have moved a few boxes, unpacked a few more and drunk several gallons of tea!!  In the meantime I made a set of postcards to hand out with our new address if you want to make something similar or wish some one good luck in their new home check out the digital papers pack in our store!

Feeling foxy part 2 – scatter pattern

fox wood random michelle

A couple of days ago I posted my little adventures from “Foxwood” with a cluster pattern (not sure if that is the correct technical term but in the dictionary of Michelle it means taking a few motifs, grouping them together and then repeating that group.)

The pattern above is a scatter pattern, random placed motifs in no particular order but I usually try not to place two of the same motifs next to each other.  Work with whatever arrangement is pleasing to the eye and I have added a couple of co ordinates to complete the collection.

Do you always work with one type of repeating pattern? – I usually design random patterns as I find my style suits this but as you can see sometimes a pattern can be made many different ways! I’ll work on some other types of pattern and post the results!

In answering a question that came up the other day for those not confident in scatter/random patterns, start with a few floral motifs and rearrange and resize them to work together like my Painting a field of flowers design.
