MATS Bootcamp Month 4 - Marine Mash-up

This month in Make Art that Sells Bootcamp we tackled crustaceans and patterns. And married them together. A marine mash-up for plates. I didn't have as much time to experiment as I would have liked, but I managed to pull-off a kiddie version with some cute and crabby characters on seaweed backgrounds.

I'm thinking these critters would be perfect for kid's beach towels or beach bags…?

This week is all about the sea! First up, a mermaid illustration and repeat pattern. I couldn't resist entering the CWDKids and Spoonflower competition. The winning design gets printed on kids pajamas—how fun! So head on over to Spoonflower and vote for your favorites...

Next up will be my MATS Bootcamp assignment, which is also sea-themed. So pop on back in a few days to see what I come up with!

Antique Garden

As part of my ABSPD Module 2 course we get a few sneak peeks at several trend reports. I spotted this beautiful muted palette for Spring 2016 and created a new collection called Antique Garden.
