My seashell design looks great as a wallpaper print! I paired it with a deep blue sofa and it looks so inviting. It would be the perfect print for a beach house vibe.

I recently designed this coral print for my Spoonflower shop. I've combined pretty coral shapes with delicate seaweed and have included shoals of mini fish swimming amongst them.

The obi is the 'belt' that goes around the kimono and they often come in brightly woven fabrics with bold design motifs. Their sturdy fabric and stunning designs mean they are perfect for making into clutch bags.

This week's Spoonflower design challenge is called 'Home Hobbies'. My home hobby and my work both involve sewing and so I naturally had to do a sewing design for this challenge. I fell very lucky to work at something that I also enjoy.
In this design I've used a colour palette of red, orange, blue and pink and have included sewing items such as scissors, thread and pins as well as the obligatory mug of tea and a few biscuits to keep me going.

The weather is slowly warming up and it's the perfect time to start planning your summer style. I created this bright outfit to compliment the red cotton kimono clutch bag in my Etsy store. The yellow of the skirt and blue of the top were picked out from accent colours in the bag.

April 22nd is Earth Day and for the whole of April a selection of artists have decided to host an art challenge which is themed Eco Art Challenge. It aims to spark awareness about environmental subjects, with a different theme each week. This week's prompt is 'Urban Garden' and I decided to create a selection of gardening items from wellies and trowels to seed packets and vegetables.

I often participate in drawing challenges set by some amazing illustrators. It's a great way to challenge my creativity and try something new. Today's prompt for @thetuesdaycollective is 'Red Lips' and I created this funky 1980s Debbie Harry-inspired woman with a choppy peroxide blonde bob and a cheeky glint in her eye. I've also created a version with black hair. Which one do you prefer?!
