Paper Pattern and Print Love

Paper Love Inspiration

I love paper.  I am a paper Junkie.

Now that we have the confessions out of the way I can say paper for me is an inspiration.

I draw on it, paint on it, cut out shapes, print on it, fold it and make secret plans…..

Paper is such a big part of my daily life, from list making (always with doodles down the side) to making presents look as beautiful on the outside as the inside, designing on it everyday and creating decorations that string together all my ideas.

It’s my favourite way of making a mood board and pulling together colours and textures for my latest collections.

I have the greatest time designing patterns for paper products – florals, stripes, geometrics, watercolours, the list is endless and there must be at least one or two pieces of patterned paper for everyone.  What is your favourite paper?

Inspired by pencils and collage

1_newborn floral m manolov

I have been hunting through a lot of fabric lately, designing new fabric patterns and looking for some pretty patterns for making my own crib sheets, gathering inspiration from coloured pencils, ribbons, hearts and playing with different shapes cut from scraps of textiles.

I like working with different materials sometimes, getting away from purely drawing or digital work, gives a different perspective sometimes and it’s fun!
