My wild grasses print looks fabulous on these home decor items and I'm so pleased with the outcome. Bees, butterflies and dragonflies buzz around the natural grasses on a soft teal ground.

Spoonflower regularly sets design challenges and this week's challenge is called Wild Grasses, to celebrate Earth Month. This is my entry, inspired by hand drawn sketches I did of wild grasses and I decided to add some butterflies, dragonflies and bees as well. It was really pleasing to design and the hardest part was deciding which colour palette to submit as I loved all of them. After much deliberation (and help from family members) I went with the light teal version, but each one has its own appeal. Which one do you prefer?!

One of my favourite trips abroad was a long weekend in Istanbul. I went with two friends and we stayed in an apartment in the heart of the old city with a stunning view of the Blue Mosque, where we could hear the evocative should of the call to prayer drifting through the warm air. The city really left an impression on me with its strong influence of both East and West and friendly locals. I long to go back one day.

I can't believe Easter is almost here! You've still got time to stock up on some Easter treats and there are some great prints in my Spoonflower shop. Buy fabric by the yard and create your own Easter items or buy them ready made on items such as table cloths, napkins, table runners and cushions in a variety of Easter prints.

Having lived in Tokyo for four years, I have a massive appreciation for all things Japanese and during that time I also amassed a rather extensive collection of vintage kimonos. I love recreating these kimonos into new items and the latest pieces to hit my store are these lovely accessories in shades of red and pink.

I've been busy creating a collection of woodland-themed designs for my Spoonflower shop. I decided to use a pleasing colour palette of teals, greens and orange and I'm loving the outcome. You can choose from a selection of fabrics to have these designs printed onto, or buy these prints on pre-made items such as cushions, bedding and wallpaper.
The leaf sprig print makes a pretty design for table napkins.

On top of designing artwork for dog lovers, I have also designed a series of repeat prints which I sell through my Spoonflower shop. These doggy prints can be printed on a variety of fabrics and bought by the yard or you can choose to have it it printed on a selection of items from cushions and duvet covers, to table cloths or even wallpaper. I enjoy designing a simple silhouette and using iconic dog breeds that work perfectly in a pared down colour palette.
