Print & Pattern Kids is here!

Today is a good day, a very good day!  Look what arrived in the post, yes after a patient wait the Print & Pattern Kids Book is out in the world!

You may remember this post when I shared the exciting news that I had been approached by the lovely Marie Perkins to have my designs included.  The very first Book I've ever been featured in!  I still can't quite believe it, it's kind of a surreal seeing my work in print alongside such huge names as Cath Kidston, Laura Ashley and so many others.  There are in fact just over 100 designers and 750 colour illustrations, what a treat for the eyes!

All these are available in my Etsy Shop as Prints, Stationery & Embroidery Patterns

" .. Print & Pattern: Kids celebrates beautiful surface design created with little people in mind.  This book documents the work of the best designers in the field, featuring both successful commerical designs and previously unseen work."  This book is now available from Amazon UK right now and any day in America.

So let's dive straight into this magical world with a big splash and enjoy some of the many many  inspiring designs!

In CELEBRATION from today until Wed 7th August midnight (GMT) you can Buy 1 Art Print in my Shop & choose another Print FREE!  Just let me know at check out which Free Print you would love!

Behind the scenes I'm drawing lots of new Illustrations, including Kittens, Badgers, Foxes and maybe even Polar Bears!  Now I'm even more inspired and so will you be with this Book!

Hi, Catherine! So nice you found me at my new blog. :o) HUGE, huge CONGRATS on your book feature--what a thrill! So glad this milestone came your way. LOVELY book... and your illustrations fit in beautifully. It's been a very busy summer here. After 2-3 wash out summers in a row, we're finally able to enjoy this one, living outdoors, and doing a lot of home & garden work. Fence painting too--it's taking forever...LOL... but lovely to be out in the sun. These days I'm doing a lot of fiber-related projects, as well as mixed media. It's a good time just now! Happy Days! Drop me a line sometime. :o) ((HUGS))
