Not had much chance to do surface pattern lately, what with half term and the dreaded norovirus – Urgh. Anyway, when I did finally find a minute or two I thought I’d try some designs for children’s bedrooms/playrooms. I’m always drawn to cool designs for kids cause lets face it you still want your kids rooms and playrooms to fit your style don’t you? I mean, I do love my children dearly but never ever will I allow a poster of IgglePiggle or will I say yes to a Disney Princess duvet cover… Cruel? Perhaps.
Using Photoshop and Illustrator I have begun to put together some A-Z designs. I’ve used some of my previous patterns as backgrounds or fills, which I have really really enjoyed doing. Originally I’d thought of these as a simple wall frieze but friends have suggested oil cloths, poster prints, individual letter cards and prints so who knows!
Lots to work on here. Do I keep lots of pink in and hope they will sell for boys and girls or should I reduce amount of pink, maybe changing to red and orange in places? I could do two colour schemes and perhaps with different objects?…hmmm. Do I use a capital letter for each A-Z or keep it lower case as in ‘rabbit’. Lots to think about but it’s great fun playing around with it all.
