  1. Hello hello! Its Blue Monday, the most depressing, miserable day of the year apparently, isn't that a cheery thought? I know I've shared this particular pattern before, this was one of the ones I created during Make It In Design Winter School 2018 and seeing as it's mainly blue I figured it would be a good one for today. There were 3 different colour variations, this one is the first one I created

    BLUE CYANOTYPE LEAVES ON A DARK BACKGROUND

    Then darker leaves on a very light grey background. 

    CYANOTYPE BLUE & GREY LEAVES ON A LIGHT GREY BACKGROUND

    Then some lighter coloured leaves on the light grey background.

    I decided to tweak the colours in a couple of them the other day, it never ceases to amaze me how different a pattern can look just by changing the background colour, so this one I went for a darker grey for the background and left all of the other colours the same. I love the overall look, it seems a bit more muted then the previous 3.

    Then this one is my absolute favourite, I kept the darker grey background and changed some of the leaves to somewhere between a Navy & a Royal Blue colours, the overall effect makes the design really pop! I can definitely see this on cushions in the future!

  2. Now that I've finished sprucing up my website I thought it was time for an intro post which gives me the chance to say Hi if you're new here.

    Hi ***waving***

     So here's a quick 10 things about me (much less snoozeworthy than a proper biography!)

    1. I drink copius amounts of tea. Loads of it. All day. Love the stuff. (Yorkshire Tea being my brew of choice)

    9. I don't have a favourite band.

    10. I am obsessed with lists, I cannot function without them.
