Spring alternative colours

Spring is a little fickle at the moment, one day glorious sunshine and green leaves budding with blooms in full floweriness and the next day, cold and grey and soggy fallen petals.  So ever the optimist lets shout out SPRING with a new collection of patterns and colours inspired from a few blooms I have outside.

Inspired by pencils and collage

1_newborn floral m manolov

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!

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)

Missing the garden time of late – lack of sunshine and garden space! Making up for it in designs hopefully until the weather improves.

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 :)

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
