Spring Patterns

My Blog has been sadly neglected of late. My focus has been on rebuilding this website and experimenting with new techniques. I’m not totally happy with the site yet – there is still a lot of work to do. But, as with so many adventures, I look back now over the past six weeks with astonishment at how much I have learnt.


So it was a lovely change to send some work over to Julia Grifol for her Spring Pattern Showcase. When Julia put out a call for Spring patterns I immediately thought about my Geo Sunflowers Collection. I really enjoyed creating this collection. The inspiration was those little gummed geometric shapes that children use to create patterns. Well, maybe it’s my age and they don’t have them now! Anyway, I used to like playing and making patterns with them. And in creating this collection I loved the opportunity to play with them again, albeit digitally.


I hope you get an opportunity to visit Julia’s site and see the lovely floral designs, but for now here is my design – Harlequin (did you know there was a sunflower called Harlequin?)
