Bird and Leaf Prints

Been a few days since I could post any designs on the blog, work behind the scenes continues with new collections set in various directions which is fantastic news but none that I can share at the moment.

What I can share is my bird and leaf prints, summer came and went, then came again and then disappeared with the  storm so I drew a few little birds with what looks like scarves and a bunch of leaves and petals  that fluttered about in the winds!  Hope you have more days of sun than we have, although I have to admit to liking the warm rain!  Not picnic weather but great for a stroll!

Look Book in the making

I have always been interested in creating a magazine or a book, it would be really cool to gather all my favourite patterns from amazing designers and rock together an fantastic collection of pattern goodness, whilst all the little details are taking plan in my head I thought I would start on a look book of my own designs…here’s a couple of sneak shots!

Currently loving….Pops of yellow

On 18, May 2013 | No Comments | In Colour Crush | By patternandco

In-between house hunting, nursery planning, looking at new stuff for our “somewhere” home and designing, I find myself pinning a lot of images!  Pinterest has been a great tool for grabbing all my favourite finds and looks, it’s pretty much like a digital pin board for those that haven’t discovered it yet (beware it is additively good).  It is so easy to use and fantastic for bookmarking  ideas, gathering items into themes from cooking to wedding plans, floral prints and interior design styles!

Recently I dropped by studio alique the blog of illustrator and surface pattern designer Alik Arzoumanian and saw a sneak peek of one of her new designs for  a line of kids’ products, a fabulous aeroplanes and clouds design in yellow!!  I can’t tell you how much I love Alik designs and how much I love pops of yellow and how much I have been pinning this current obsession.

Check out the full details and links over at my pinterest board “Pops of Yellow” and if you are already signed up to Pinterest and love colour, patterns and trends (who doesn’t?) you can follow all off my boards here. 

Staying with Pinterest I shall be taking part in a Pin Hop at the end of the month, the idea is to design around a theme – the one I am currently working on is midnight garden!  Sounds fun right?  For the other themes and a whole bunch of fantastic designers taking part drop by the Find New Designers board!

An underwater bouquet for Kess InHouse

One of the best things as a designer is to see your patterns and art on fabulous products and in peoples homes.  Kess InHouse have my sea inspired underwater bouquet collection in midnight and summer swimming around on bedlinen, shower curtains, pillows, throws and more! Perfect timing!

They also teamed it swimmingly (excuse the pun 😉 with Theresa Giolzetti succulent dance pillow cases! (shown above)

Seagulls and Shells

Sometimes I step outside and forget I no longer live by the sea!  A little reminder for me and soon a move closer to the mountains and lakes will hopefully help!
