*The 365 patterns a day creative design challenge is a collaborative event with lots of designers, to see the collection of patterns and for more details drop by the caravan blog.

Missing the garden time of late – lack of sunshine and garden space! Making up for it in designs hopefully until the weather improves.

Echinops (Globe thistle).

This one I have been playing around with for a couple of days wondering which direction to go in.  Loose and sketchy like D is for dandelion or something a bit different.  It happened that the other week I was working on some damask patterns and doodling a few ideas and thought it would be great if I could draw the thistle as simple shapes and work it into a more complex pattern to build a damask!

In the end I choose a rounder version of the thistle (which leaves me with a million other sketches to return to at some point for inspiration or using in other designs!)

I’m loving it as a big and bold wallpaper!

Dandelions!  I love them for their yellow cheerfulness, simple but bright and then the change into  feathery, light and delicate, blow in the wind flowers……stunning!
