Inspired by……A Wooden Door

“Inspired by” a new series on the blog of images and ideas that I see on my daily wanders that inspire me to make patterns. Sometimes the pattern of brickwork can spark a design or the skeleton of a leaf that fell from a tree, a motif on iron railings, it maybe taken literally or develop into something very different.

Today’s pattern came from an old wooden front door,

inspired by a front door1

I love the way the diagonals intersect!

Below is my sketch, I added a few more lines to create more depth….

…and then translated the pattern into illustrator to add colour and texture.

Looks good on the final products.

Inspired by pencils and collage

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!

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!

Where the wild roses grow, beyond the painted trellis and out into the patterned fields, fly the swallows!
