unlikely friends




A new pattern to show you today. Somewhat influenced by Norwegian ceramics and Russian folklore. It depicts a tea party attended by the most unlikely friends. I was trying to work with 2, 3 colors maximum - and play with the miss-registration effect a bit. I think it tells a neat story:) This would work as wallpaper, ceramics, fancy coat lining, inside of a book jacket... etc,. Mama's got big dreams for this pattern:)!

very striking! The first one (pink) is my favorite. A good way to start the week, thanks for the creative jolt, as usual

Your characters are incredibly charming. I wouldn't be able to choose a favorite color combo. And as usual, beautiful patterning :)

Sometimes I think you've been eavesdropping when Roo tells me about her dreams... if you do a pattern with a dog on fire wearing skis, I'll know it's true...
