It gave me the idea that I would really like to design large, delicate ferns in white line to print on black and other deep colours. I have a vision which I particularly fancy on throw and floor pillows. I believe in making things I would like to own myself, and letting the fun happen; I reckon if I like it, I am sure other people will, too.
I worked on fern drawings for a few hours today, playing around with a couple of ideas and trying different treatments. There is still a lot to do to get the design print ready, but I am happy with progress so far. In the mean time, I blogged some images and thoughts on that over at The Weekly on my Heather Eliza website.
My plan for the coming week is to clean up a few more of my Instagram Folktale Week and Inktober 2019 posts which people have asked for, as well as to keep going with the new fern design. It won’t be long until I can do the ‘press release’ (grand term for telling my friends I have a shop at long last) - but it is such interesting work, I am loving it!
Thanks for visiting, see you next week!
