A bunch of poppies

Trying to play around with some different textures and patterns in Illustrator to make the poppies look as if they were collaged onto the page.

First birthday cupcakes

What's a birthday party without a cupcake?

Some bunting for girls

It was great fun making the little floral patterns to go in these flags - the hard part was knowing when to stop swapping them all around!

Festive bunting

We had a request for something more bright and cheerful, so this one has some much stronger colours - thank you for the comments, please keep them coming!

Belinda's hearts

Belinda has been playing with painted hearts collaged onto paper - we quite liked the contrast between something handmade and 3d and the illustrator artwork.

Cats, dogs, chickens

...and their bones, fish and eggs.

Retro scooters

Some roses for spring

Testing out some passionflowers for cards

Yet more paisley

And more paisley...


I'm a bit obsessed with paisley designs; we're trying to find one less girly for some gender-neutral wrapping paper.

The patterned fish

This design was for my son who is a mad fisherman - he tells me the fish is a golden trevally - I think he wants some more species though...

Belinda's cats, dogs and chickens

Belinda gave me some hand-drawn animals and I put them into Illustrator - now we have to think how they should be arranged on the page!
