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 Hand 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 colors, such as the silver-gray and gray-green look great when mixed with existing white bedding.
THERE ARE MORE COLORS AND PRODUCTS AVAILABLE OF COURSE. 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.
have you seen my doodle line art pattern yet? i drew it by hand and It's my favourite!
the print/pattern is available in over 50 colors, (coral being the latest) and suits a massive variety of room styles:
clean & modern (BUT NOT BORING!) - yes
minimaL, with an accent coloR - yes
scandinavian style - yes. the pattern compliments clean, uncluttered but cosy rooms while providing a bit of interest.
mid century modern - yes. the curvy, swirly pattern and clean lines go so well with all things mcm. it's modern but retro and I have some really cool colors AVAILABLE.
bedrooms, living rooms, dens, snugs, nurseries, beach houses, conservatories, indoor cushions, outdoor cushions - yes, this print is perfect for them all.
Are you looking for A CERTAIN COLOR PALETTE? i have them all covered - neutrals, pastels, brightS, darks, desaturated colors and retro colorS. if you want a colOr I don't currently offer, just let me know and i'll sort that out for you.
if you are wondering where you can buy my DELIGHTFUL print from, i shall tell you:
SOciety6 - for the whole range of decor & accessories, from throw pillows (indoor & outdoor), to curtains, comforters and bath/hand towels.
i especially like the fabric society6 use for their throw pillows, or cushions as we call them in the uk. the cushion (pillow!) inserts are also really fat and squishy - there will be no mean, pathetic, lifeless pillows/cushions when you order from s6!
REDBUBBLE - most of the decor, PLus a slightly bigger range of apparel. at redbubble you can choose to buy a cushion/pillow cover without the insert, if you are just looking to refresh your room.
redbubble is also great for us folks outside the USA, as they have european manufacturers too. that means a lot of items (please check Redbubble before ordering) are made & shipped from europe, so you don't get slammed with extra fees - especially the extortionate royal mail 'handling' fees. although it should be pointed out that society6 refund extra shipping costs/fees for your first order.
zazzle - if you are zazzle devotee - maybe you have zazzle black? - then I sell this print as cushions/throw pillows, duvet covers and fabric. on zazzle you can choose from cotton or polyester covers, with or without zips, and indoor or outdoor.
SPOONFLOWER - if you want this pattern as a large scale print, head over to my spoonflower store, where it is available on a vast array of fabrics and as wallpaper. their sister site roostery also offers this print on home decor.
IF YOU love cacti AND pastel colorS - LOOK NO FURTHER!
I HAVE TITLED THIS PRETTY CACTUS PHOTOGRAPH "I STAND ALONE' AND IT IS AVAILABLE AS AN ART PRINT IN MY SOCIETY6 STORE, AS WELL AS ON A SELECTION OF HOME DECOR. I'VE GIVEN YOU A FEW EXAMPLES ABOVE, BUT CHECK OUT MY STORE FOR ALL AVAILABLE PRODUCTS.
