Design to Detail Cover

Hi everyone,

There's a lot going on around here at the moment. I'm on my final read through of my new full length e-book - Design to Detail, it should be ready and up for sale towards the end of next week.

Here's a look at the new cover - what do you think?


 I'm getting pretty excited for it to be finished! In between studying full-time and working on Design to Detail whenever I could fit it in, it has taken a while to get done and I'm so glad to be on the home stretch.

Now, a bit of housekeeping:

I've had a great response to the Aquafleur Rose and Three Little Rules sale, thank you! If you missed the post you can read about it here. You will not be able to buy these mini e-books once Design to Detail is available to purchase, so if you want either of them you'll need to get in soon.

The new free subscriber e-book will be going out in the next day or so. I'm just getting all my ducks in a row to send it.  I'll post to the blog when it has been sent so you know to be on the lookout.

New email subscribers: please make sure if you have signed up for the blog email feed that you finalise your subscription (you need to click on the link in the confirmation email). I would estimate about 15-20% of subscribers forget to do this final step and, unfortunately, I cannot send you anything if you do not have a confirmed subscription.

Have a great day!

PATTERN - Faux Weave

I am getting ever closer to the finish line of my course. I have one more round of assessments to go and should be done in around 6 weeks - I cannot wait! I have enjoyed it, but am more than ready for it to be over. Thanks for hanging in there with my erratic posting over the past year or so :)

My desk, which has a myriad of buried treasure amongst the clutter  (my organisation "system" tends towards scribbling things down on scraps of paper when I get an idea then throwing them on my desk). Anyway, I had a bit of a clean up last night and it offered up this pattern ready to scan and share.

I love, love, LOVE easy patterns and how, often, from a simple construct the illusion of a more complex design can be created.

I think that "faux weave" is one such example. What could be easier than spiralling around a single line? Stack these spirals together using a square grid, alternate the direction, add some basic fill and shading and all of a sudden you have a woven effe…

String Rose PATTERN

Well, d-day has almost arrived. Tomorrow I head back to school. Where did the summer go? At least the class schedule is looking pretty light and I'll only be at school for 2- 2 1/2 days a week.

Today I want to share a really simple technique/pattern I've called "String Rose". This idea first made an appearance on the blog during the old into new challenge back in 2014. I named one of the experimentation tiles as Trentwith and though this pattern was the initial source of inspiration, my version takes a different approach. I had always meant to share the technique as it's so simple, and fun, but I just didn't get around to it. Until now! 2 1/2 years later.....haha.

O.k., here goes........

The String Rose Pattern - this shows the base technique.


As it's all done in one continuous line, I thought a little insta-video might help out:

Puffy 8's PATTERN

O.k., wow. Another year done and dusted! Can you believe it's 2017? Me? I'm still reeling.

So, where did 2016 go? I had so much that I wanted to get done here on the website, but, life takes some interesting turns and my return to full-time study in 2016 though not planned, was so interesting - I loved it!

Since term ended for our long summer break, I've been periodically working on tidying up my files and found some unpublished patterns that I hadn't got around to posting. I'll put them up over the next few weeks.

Today I'm sharing a pattern called Puffy 8's - it's another spin off of 2/8's (love that base pattern!)

You could stop at step 5 above, or keep going to fill all the spaces.
And, what's life without a bit of freeforming?
Wishing everyone a happy, productive 2017!
