Inspired by Spring Pastels

Yesterdays post on Pastel trends got me all creative so I made a series of soft and fluffy cloud art in pastel colours – very pretty!

birthday cake_patternandco

Yesterday was my birthday!  Yay and with the yummiest cupcakes as a birthday treat and a big bunch of flowers I was a happy girl. Even the sun managed to come out to say “greetings” for a while.

Inspired by my full tummy I doodled a few cakes…..almost good enough to eat!

Spring Flirt (#365patterns) Pattern 7

On 25, Feb 2013 | No Comments | In My Pattern and Print | By patternandco

sprint flirt 1 patternandco

Spring flirt is such a perfect title for today, I had hoped over the weekend that the snow and cold was making way for a little bit of spring.  I’d spied a few clumps of snowdrops huddled together and the buds on the trees looked liked they wanted just a little bit of sunshine and then……came Monday morning and a fresh blanket of snow!  Spring is being a tease!

SO I stayed in the studio and dreamed up my own spring start with snowdrops and winter aconites…..hopefully crocus will join them soon!

In the meantime these little beauties are available in the shop.

Heirloom Beauty (#365patterns) Pattern 6

Heirloom Beauty1 patternandco

This started life as a little watercolour on the corner of my sketchbook.  I like to flick through old notes and sketches, looking at things with fresh eyes, adding textures, playing around with the colours!

Together is our favourite place to be



The swans along the water glide,
Unfettered and yet side by side–
So should true lovers ever be,
Together ever–ever free.

The Swans Along The Water Glide by Edith Nesbit

Prints available in the store.

Snowflakes, mushrooms and brown paper

I love the little things that inspire me, walking out in the snow the other day, finding a wooden mushroom that has the most fabulous texture on the front, making paper snowflakes and wrapping presents in brown paper!

And the snowflakes keep on falling inside and out :)
