New Pie & Inks

Here's a few new Pie & Ink's I have made over the last few weeks. I am really enjoying the challenge of producing these and am finding myself becoming fasted and more confident about the colour and content I use for each piece. It's a great exercise. Here's hoping that one day I'll have enough to fill a book!

A new pattern on wedding stationary

I seem to be churning out the patterns lately! For some reason I find it incredibly relaxing making a new pattern fit together and then applying it (or elements of it) to a context is really satisfying. I think the elements work well on wedding stationary borders.

New patterns on products

Here are a few new pattern designs I have been working on over the last week. I also used the PSD Covers actions to apply my designs to products to see how they might look. If you haven't used PSD Covers before I suggest you give them a try. They are free, simple to use and look great. It's always fun to visualise your designs on a product!
