In my last blog post, I mentioned that I had entered a couple of competitions. The first one was to design a sock for ‘Sock It to Me‘. Out of six thousand entries I was one of the top twenty finalists, which I am very pleased with! The second competition was to create an illustration based on the word, ‘Opulent’, for Illustration Friday and as I didn’t win that one, I decided to have another go at entering yet another contest. The aim of this one was to produce a tea towel design for Spoonflower. The results will be announced in a few days time and here is my final, ‘Farm to Tea Towel’ design.

My final tea towel design is bold, bright and modern in style. I love how the neutral background tones down the bright colours and the vegetable icons ‘pop out’ too. It is a simple composition, yet has enough going on.  Fingers crossed I’ll be one of the twenty five finalists selected!  😀

It’s been roughly two weeks since I last posted, so ‘SORRY’, for the rather late blog post.  I have an exciting project on the go at the moment, which is keeping me very busy and out of mischief! I also want to mention that to my huge surprise, whilst browsing the web, I came across a website which has featured my blog! The blog is Vuelio, and they have listed mine as one of the UK’s top ten design blogs. So I’d like to say a big “thank you” to Merryn Williams for giving my blog such an accolade!

I want to share with you a design collection I created, just prior to starting my new project, for Heimtextil. One of the themes that is always popular with interiors is geometrics. I’ve not created a geometrical collection for a while and loved producing my latest, Moroccan Spice homedecor range.

When working on geometric patterns, I find that I’m more experimental. So long as the design mainly consists of shapes, pretty much anything goes with geometrics. I like to incorporate different elements, such as texture, angled and curved bold shapes, line and pattern.

Within my Moroccan Spice homedecor range, I’ve used bright warm tones with cooler blues and greys, along with hints of black. I was inspired by the shapes and colours that are popular in Moroccan tiles. They tend to consist of symmetrical shapes, which I have used in my design range.

The main pattern replicates a tile design and I have designed three coordinating patterns to sit alongside.

Here’s an illustration that I created, which uses the tile pattern within the Moroccan Spice homedecor range. I devised a relaxing home scene with a cute kitty cat, sleeping quietly next to a floor and hanging plant.
