Bird and Leaf Prints

bird and leaf print michelle drew patternandco

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!

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….

Birch Grove

birch_in_blue_patternandco

I love birch trees, from their bark, the colours (colour inspiration 2) and their texture! So I used them as a spring board to work on a collection of prints and notebooks!

Available in a whole range of wonderful colours!

I had real fun working on these but the best part is hopefully one or two of the designs are destined for a specific company,  just waiting to get the official nod :)

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.
