I’d like to firstly say that I hope you’ve had a lovely Easter weekend! The weekends seem to fly by so quickly, even on a four day bank holiday weekend.
I’m very proud of myself, that I didn’t eat any chocolate this Easter. I didn’t even attempt to sneakily steal any of my daughter’s chocolate eggs. I will be going away with the family during the summer, so at the moment I’m trying to be good. So far so good!
For week ten on the Rise Design and Shine course, it was all about Christmas. I wanted to try a more traditional themed range, drawing pine cones, foliage, spices, oranges and apples. This is my final collection, which I placed on ceramic mugs.
I initially created the pine cone and fruit pattern, on the bottom left mug. Afterwards, designing the holly patterned coordinate and the pine cone and orange wreathe.
Here is another Christmas themed design collection. As you can see, it’s based on musical angels.
Who doesn’t like to wear new pyjamas at Christmas time?! For this collection, I have designed an all over angel print, with angels singing and playing musical instruments. There’s also a snowflake coordinate and an angel placement design with singing robins.
I’ll definitely be showing these designs at the Blue Print and Surtex shows next month. There’s now approximately two weeks ’til the cutoff date, to send all the designs to my agent Brenda Manley. I’ve still a few more designs left to complete, which means I’ll be super busy between now and the beginning of May.
Enjoy the rest of your week!
