I CAN’T SAY I REALLY LIKE THE WORD ‘PAPERIE’, IT’S A BIT TWEE AND ANNOYING (AND DEFINITELY NOT FRENCH...), BUT IT’S A MUCH MORE SUCCINCT CATEGORY TITLE THAN ‘INVITATIONS/PHOTO CARDS + STATIONERY’, SO I SUPPOSE I’M STUCK WITH IT UNTIL I CAN THINK OF SOMETHING BETTER.
This design was inspired by the trailing leaves wall art Trish Walker has in her bedroom on Jessica Jones. I think that wall art is spray painTed, but my take on the design is printed with real ivy leaves.
I made the leaf prints purposely quite imperfect, because what’s the point of hand printing stuff if it looks like it was made on a computer? The leaves are set on a slightly textured/mottled background to give a bit of extra depth.
The paler colours, such as the silver-gray and gray-green look great when mixed in with existing white bedding.
There are more colours and products available than shown above. You can shop the collection at SOCIETY6 HERE.
Here's a little introduction to my lino printed cactus pattern.
I originally created it years ago, but with cactuses / cacti becoming so popular in the last few years, I decided to bring it back in a lino-printed version. Anything that gives me the opportunity to cut my hands to shreds with sharp tools, is always a good idea!
At present I offer the print in black & white, pink & white, and green & white, but I'm sure I'll be adding more colors to the range. because...why not.
The above slide show gives a few examples of what sort of products you can find the print on, but more is available in my SOCIETY6 store.
The reverse print, with the colored cactus print on an off-white (it's not bright white) background, is especially good if you want to mix a few new items in with existing white bedding, or if you want a pattern that is not too overpowering.
