Inspiration round every corner

This week I started the online course Art & Business of Surface Pattern Design!  Who knows where it will lead and be integrated into my designs, the fun is in the creative journey.  It's been really inspiring so far, I've been out on treasure hunts looking for patterns.  It really makes you open your eyes and see everything around you in a different light.

Smiles can be found everywhere if you look hard enough!

Who would have thought that concrete posts could be beautiful until I looked closely and found the most amazing yellow lichen growing!  Here is a small collection of my photos over the last 2 days.

Oh and look at this beautiful new friend that visited my garden this morning! Any idea on the breed?

Busy sewing a new Mohair Bear and working on lots of orders for Party Stationery alongside this course, so quite the whirlwind of creativity here!  I hope you're well, thanks for visiting,

Nature makes the best patterns of all, I said this tonight whilst looking at the bottom of an open pine cone, just amazing, lovely photos of yours, hope you do fantastic things on your course, it will be inspiring for sure, I've seen lots of work that's come out of the course.

How did you spot that fence post? Amazing - great photo. That course sounds really interesting - I'm dreaming of being able to have the time to take a course or two perhaps ;-) Hope you are well. x

Great photos. It's amazing how much pattern occurs in nature when you look for it. x
