Matisse-inspired artwork

 I thought I'd try my hand at a Matisse-inspired print and I'm really pleased with the outcome! I wanted to give the feel of cut paper shapes and kept it really loose in style. I've included leaf shapes as well as circles and created a layered effect on a teal background.

This print is now available in my Redbubble shop on a variety of different products. My favourite piece is this wood mounted artwork which comes in a choice of three sizes.

This wood print is easy to hang and appears to float in front of the wall. It is printed onto 1/4" thick birch plywood and has rounded corners. What I love about this piece is that the wood grain is visible through the print.

Sweet scottie dogs

This sweet scottie dog print is perfect for using as a scottie dog passport cover. The cover is lightly padded and has a red and white polka dot lining, with a pocket on each side to slot the passport into. 

Each scottie dog is white and has a red collar that matches the red of the lining.

This is the perfect travel accessory and makes a great travel gift for a dog lover.

Ice cream purse

 I'm channelling summer vibes today with this cute little ice cream zipper purse. It's made from a fabulous pink and orange ice-cream print on a vibrant blue background.

This little ice cream purse is perfect for using as a makeup bag and fits all the essentials in. It's fully lined in a hot pink lining and is machine washable too!

It could also be used as a handbag organiser, somewhere to store all the small items that get lost in your bag such as phone, keys and glasses. The zipper closure keeps everything safe.

This is the perfect gift for an ice cream lover.

Christmas drawing challenges

I love to dip into the drawing challenges set by a variety of illustrators and designers on Instagram and Spoonflower. For most of December I've been participating in a selection of challenges that are related to a winter and Christmas theme.

This challenge was called 'happy mail' and was part of the #12daysofcreativecheer drawing challenge on Instagram. I chose to include christmas note cards, holly-embossed envelopes and seasonal stamps all in a festive colour palette. You will be able to find this as a repeat pattern in my Spoonflower shop soon!

These martini glasses were my interpretation for the 'tipsy and toasty' prompt for the #12daysofcreativecheer challenge. Bubbly cocktails have been embellished with a slice of spicy orange, a candy cane and sprigs of holly.

'Sugar and spice' was the prompt word for this #12daysofcreativecheer drawing challenge and I immediately thought of warming hot chocolate and spiced lattes. I chose festive-themed mugs and embellished them with marshmallows, a cinnamon stick and chocolate sprinkles.

The prompt word for 14th Dec for the #doodleadaydec drawing challenge set by @ellolovey was 'cookies' so I chose to draw these festive cuties on a pink background. This print has been designed in repeat and will be available to buy by-the-metre in my Spoonflower shop soon!

On 6th December the prompt word for the @ellolovey #doodleadaydec drawing challenge was 'ornament' so I drew this selection of retro-inspired baubles in a pleasing colour palette of pinks, reds, blues and greens.

The @ellolovey #doodleadaydec drawing challenge for 18th December was 'candlelight' so I drew this little still life, inspired by the christmas ornaments in my home.

Another drawing challenge for the #12daysofcreativecheer was 'ribbon and wrap' so I created an allover design of brightly coloured, patterned presents in all shapes and sizes. This one has also been made into a repeat pattern and will be available in my Spoonflower shop soon.

Skiers shoot down a mountain in this festive take on the 'skates and skis' prompt for the ##frostyandfestive challenge. I included decorative christmas trees and snowflakes.

On 16th December I created this scenic for the #12daysofcreativecheer drawing challenge. The prompt was 'candy forest' so a created a super sweet scene including gingerbread houses, candy floss clouds and lollipop trees. This can also be found as a repeat pattern in my Spoonflower shop.

The christmas eve prompt for the #frostyandfestive challenge was 'woodland and wonderland' so I created this repeat pattern of christmas trees and stars on a light blue background.

The December 28th prompt word for the #doodleadaydec challenge form @ellolovey was 'snow globe' so I used some of the trees from my 'woodland and wonderland' design to create this little cutie.

All these images can be found on my Instagram account.

Pool party gift bags

 I'm dreaming of summer days with these happy, sunny gift bags. These cotton drawstring bags come in a set of three different sizes. They are a great way of gifting something special and the best thing is that they are reusable too, so they become part of the gift.

The largest drawstring bag comes in a fun ice-cream and iced lolly print and is perfect for gifting toiletries in. It also makes a great travel bag for storing smaller items in your suitcase.

Each bag comes with a bright pink ribbon tie.

The medium sized drawstring bag is perfect for gifting items such as perfume. It comes in a cute pink print including beach items such as bikini, sunglasses and palm trees.

Each bag is reusable and machine-washable too.

The smallest drawstring bag is made from a fabulous flamingo fabric and is perfect for gifting items such as jewellery.

These drawstring bags look so lovely together!

Home office artwork

It has become a lot more popular to work from home nowadays, so I decided to create this working from home artwork which is perfect for brightening the walls of any home office.

I love the turquoise geometric wallpaper and clean white furniture, but added a flash of colour with the chevron carpet and bright red desk lamp. I'm also loving the retro turquoise typewriter.

This working from home artwork is printed onto a thick watercolour paper and comes unframed. It's wrapped in a cellophane wrapper and gift wrapped in pink tissue paper - the perfect gift!

 It's not too late to order this rather fabulous red and white snowflake print from my Spoonflower shop! It's the prefect design for decorating a christmas table and comes in a selection of tableware such as napkins, placemats and tablecloths.

The snowflake napkins come in a choice of two different fabrics.

The snowflake tablecloth comes in a sateen fabric and can be bought as a square, rectangle or circle shape and in a variety of sizes.

The snowflake placemat is sold individually and comes in a choice of three different fabrics.

 Last week's Spoonflower design completion was 'Funny Valentine' so I decided to create this fun love heart print. Can't wait to get it printed up and to make some cute little purses out of it.

The cat glasses case is lightly padded and can also be used as a cat phone case.

Sweet treats

 The latest Spoonflower design challenge is called 'Delicious Ditsy' and I couldn't resist creating this sweet treats print for it. I'm a cake-lover and these tasty morsels, with their pink icing na cherry on top are irresistible. A ditsy pattern usually has two characteristics - tiny and with a multi directional layout, which makes the very easy to use on a wide variety of craft projects. This print would be great for using for an afternoon tea table cloth or napkins, or for making into an apron for the baker in your life.

Purple clutch bag

I love the colour purple and this purple kimono fabric was calling out to me to be made into a clutch bag. It has a wonderful oversized chrysanthemum design woven into it and makes quite a statement. I've added a matching purple tassel to the zipper pull and given it a stunning burgundy satin lining for a contrasting colour when the bag is opened.
