Spring Fever

Hi Everyone,

I am currently living in Malta - which is an island in the Mediterrean Sea, just south of Sicily...and although it is winter here still, the temperature is very much like spring back in Canada (where I am originally from). Flowers are blooming and birds are chirping and unlike the summer months here - it is more lush and green right now - which is perfect inspiration for this Spring theme!  

I recall how incredible it feels to know spring is coming and everyone gets SPRING FEVER!  I hope to create a pattern that is lush with color and vibrancy, with small birds almost camoflauged between the flowers. My moodboard shows the colors and types of floral motifs I am loving right now. I better get drawing!


Now for some preliminary sketches of flowers, leaves and birds.



Playing with my pattern...different backgrounds....going to add some birds - stay tuned! 



Here is the single pattern tile:


Here is the pattern repeated on white - which feels fresh and playful; great for bed linens, throw pillows, tea towels. I also think it would be an awesome cotton print for capris or white denim shorts! 


I thought it became more striking, bold and sophisticated against a deeper background; the darker cololrway would make lovely stationary (notepads and writing sets), wrapping paper. I can also envision it on a larger scale - as wallpaper or one wall panel. I asked family and friends to vote for their fave and majority picked the dark colorway so I honored my fans and myself by going with this one as the final!
