An underwater bouquet for Kess InHouse

underwater bouquet at night kessinhouset michelle drew

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!

Textured Blooms

On 09, May 2013 | No Comments | In My Pattern and Print | By patternandco

nirds of a feather

 

The day started one way and ended another!  I have worked on new designs in several different colourways, they are under wraps for the moment until they go into production with THE company!  YAY!

So I thought I would take some time out to design for the A-Z of flowers.  Working on the letter H at the moment and my first thought was of Hellebores!  I love their colours combinations from chocolates to cherry purples, pinks, white and lime green…..but this happened instead, a combination of textures and floral blooms and I love the outcome.

Hellebores on the other hand were definitely not working today and can wait for tomorrow, some days you have to go with the flow and apparently I am still on a vintage fling.  Happy days!

These are also number 29 for the #365patterns a day challenge!  This is a collaborative event with lots of designers, to see the collection of patterns and for more details drop by the caravan blog and check out more of my patterns on instagram (patternandco)

Taking time out for a bird walk

On 06, May 2013 | No Comments | In My Pattern and Print | By patternandco

My last post was about too much to do, this kind of reflects that need for a break sometimes and that it is never a bad thing to stop, step away from the computer or the art board and listen to the birds for a while!

Too many things to do!

On 03, May 2013 | No Comments | In My Pattern and Print | By patternandco

Too many things to do and not enough time (I am sure I am not the only one) so here’s some ducks, remember those wooden pull along toys!  Going to hunt for a vintage set (or new but looks vintage) for the nursery!

Watercolour Waves

As much as I love working digitally,  it’s good to get back to paper and paints.

I find the hands on approach to making the textures that I often use in my patterns is much more authentic if I paint or draw a collection of ideas.  Yesterday I had the idea of a series of watercolour patterns so far we have spring plaids and tartans…

Grab them here!  The zig zags are a work in progress….

A-Z of Flowers G is for……

geranium in blue patternandco

……Geranium.

I was inspecting some of the early geraniums and if you look closely at their petals they have these wonderful pattern of veins.

I even made co-ordinates….
