Ellila - Surface pattern designer



Toile de jouy meets retro Circus


my name is Jozefien ( @ellila__ in the world of pattern design), a mom of 3 and since a few years fallen in love with surface pattern design.  At the moment it is just my hobby, I'm still learning a lot and searching for my style.  In one year I hope to start my own business.


The project:

I came across this class when I was searching for inspiration for the spoonflower challenge 'Retro cirucus limited color palette'.  When I started this class I was immediately inspired.


When I think about retro circus I saw a red/white tent, balloons, a caravan, acrobats and an elephant on a ball in front of me.333fe724


My drawings:

when I was starting to draw I was so surprised that I was able to draw all of these things.  You explained everything so good!


And the final result that I've entered in the contest.  As you can see I used the blue and the green from the limited color palette.
