My Pattern and Print
Little pink puppy loves green bows in her hair,
She ties them with great care.
Brown dog likes big blue bow ties,
They match her soft fur and beautiful eyes.
All puppies look smart with a bow tied just eyeweardock right.
Paris here we come! Rosie and her team from Believe creative Studio are at Indigo along side some very talented guest designers from all over the world! Myself included! I created over 20 brand new and exclusive children’s patterns and coordinates to exhibit and would love for you to drop by Booth U51 and check out all the wonderful designs!
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.
Hello you! How you doing? Having a break today after a serious couple of months of work (great fun though!) Chat more later, need to refuel and write up exactly what has been happening over here – exciting stuff!
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!
Wandering around Munich with all the Christmas festivities starting has inspired some new papers with a vintage Christmas feel – instant download from our store now and get into the Christmas swing!
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.
Moving always gets me decorating and thinking of the accessories and extra touches, plus it’s Christmas round the corner and I am on the look out for presents!
