Hello!

When I saw the topic of "Spring" I was a so happy to revisit some past sketches that I thought would work together for "Garden Gnomes" Above is the Mood Board I created this morning & below are the past sketches that I compiled together :)

Below are my first digital sketches of my gnomes- from last May.... I stopped working on them, because I got stuck & just trying to figure out repeats & Illustrator at the time.... :)

Hello!!

This is my fabric line "Lush Orchids" :)

I enjoyed this process so very much & learned a LOT as well :)

I surprised myself by picking this color pallette, but really like how it turned out. When I was sketching, I was envisioning hot pinks, oranges & teals. But, considering my mood board & references to  "Art Nouveau" styles, I noticed the colors where prodominantly black, olive greens, & browns. ( In the diff colorways, I might explore using the Hot pinks, teals & oranges. ) I had so much fun working on this, & watching the collection take form. - Thanks! Melanie Schummacher

Hello! Above are my desgital sketches :) I kept the color palete to blacks & grays at this point and will add color next... That helped a TON to keep all the elements to "match" & to consentrate on forms first .(thanks for that tip Elizabeth!) I did draw some different flowers (center) & played with colors. Below are my pencil/colored pencil sketches, & where I was working from life/pinterest to get visual references. 

Thanks!!! -Mel

Hello!

I am very happy to be part of this class!

For my design collection I choose the theme "Lush Orchids" Lush- " characterized by luxeriant vegetation".   The thought of COLOR & exotic, warm places sounds so inticing right now, as I look out my window at snow & -13 degree temps!  

This is my mood board :) Thanks!
