Vintage Florals

I was looking at some Liberty prints on pinterest the other day, I love the way they fill the pattern with florals.

The English Garden – Emily silhouette

I particularly liked this print by Emily Silhouette with its limited colour scheme and the lighter colour being the motif colour rather than the background colour.

I decided to use my own growing collection of hand drawn florals to create something inspired by this print.

At first I decided to stop with a striped pattern, I saved it in CMYK, hence the odd colour variation on the web. I thought, Wow! striped florals, how lovely, but then after a cup of tea I figured it might be better filled in.

This time I also changed it to an RGB image for web. It reminds me of 1970s bedding and curtains.

It’s in the spoonflower shop:

You can buy it as a fabric or have spoonflower turn it into a variety of homeware items including bedding!
