I created these colourful illustrations using food colourant, household bleach and biro pens, which i feel gives a beautiful unusual look!

These simple leaf patterns were inspired by the cover page from Country living magazine October 2011 ( the page is shown behind the pattern.) The main reason this page stood out to me was because of the striking effect of the dark pink of the leaves contrasting beautifully with the rusty mustard yellow of the metal, I therefore used shades of these colours within my piece!

These are my final pieces for my gardening themed textile a-level project. I used a range of techniques to apply my fork and trowel repeat pattern on to fabric, and sewed into the majority of them to give texture and add colour!
Although I made these pieces almost a year ago I'm still in love with the pattern and colours I created! The cushion has the pattern appliqued on, which gives it great texture and the table runner is screen printed for practicality!
I recently went to an exhibition in the Geffrye Museum called 'At Home In Japan - Beyond The Minimal House.' This was a really interesting exhibition as it was jam packed with everything Japanese from kimonos to toothpaste packaging and everything in between! From this exhibition I learnt that owls and cats are believed to be lucky and to prevent malevolent spirits entering the home and causing misfortune... I have therefore created this simple repeat pattern using a couple of sketches of owls that I drew at the exhibition!
.... And after posting this I found another perfume edit that I love the feel of! .... its clear to see that this is my first day as a blogger!
