I'm very much a fan of prints and styles from decades past, particularly from the 1920's - 1950's. I recently looked back at architecture, furniture design and the modern styles that became poplular in the 1920's when Art Deco began.
The simplicity and sleek lines were like nothing seen before and a truly modern way of living. To this day many of the styles still have an edge to them and remain immensely popular.
I was influenced by the lines and styling of this period while working on my two new designs Tulip and Diamond. I think I have captured the essence of the movement while creating a modern interpretation. I wanted to keep a softness to the finished design and they have turned out beautifully. I hope you'll agree and enjoy incorporating these into future projects.
I have started a new project, the tulip design was screaming to be stitched into and is a wonderful template to create your own embroidery. I began with simple seed stitches to add some colour to the tulips and I was going to do a different stitch on each flower, but the simplicity of these really appealed so I continued.
These will be available in my Etsy shop soon, I'm sold out of some of the options after the Spring Knitting and Stitching Show and I'm waiting for a fabric delivery so I can reprint.
