Welcome to my website if you have arrived here from Lindsay Buck’s blog. I hope you’ve already enjoyed all the things you’ve seen so far and you’ll be hopping till the end!
When I first saw the christmas trend reports for holiday season 2014 I instantly fell in love with the monochrome colour designs and the black and white minimalistic handmade touch.
So.. I thought I will use my favourite black brush pen from Japan (LOVE LOVE LOVE it!) and then I was painting and drawing so many many papers with christmas and winter related things. …My husband is on a business trip in Tokyo right now and I hope he doesn’t forget to bring some of these pens with him back home:-)
I was inspired by nature things like christmas trees/woods/winter activities/skiing/snowballs/fir cones/reindeers and folky crafts like the in Germany very famous traditionell crafts from the Erzgebirge with their minimalistic shapes. So I wanted to keep my designs for this collection also minimal and simplified with a strong personality. Hope you like it!
So here is my Collection for Christmas 2014
I’ve had a fun time designing these…
…So far I made gift tags with the design…
Some of the Designs I’ve already created for the Make it in Design live brief of Dashwood Studio in Summer, but I recoloured them as I didn’t like the colours anymore and added some more designs. This was a last minute project but I am planning to add greeting cards and a few more useful things for Christmas from this Collection to my shop.
So! Now it’s time to leave my blog and hop over to Jess Paynes using the NEXT button below…Have fun and enjoy all the projects everyone has made…! THANK YOU for reading!
