Riley Blake Designer Blog Hop & Fabric Giveaway

Welcome! Thanks to Riley Blake Fabric for hosting a fun Designer Blog Hop. It gives me the chance to tell you a little more about me and how much I am in love with designing! My passion is taking an idea and a doodle and making it come to life either in fabricart printspaper collectionsphone casespatterns, and other products. I pinch myself thinking how lucky I am to do something I love every day!

My new collection, Roots & Wings is just hitting the shelves at your favorite fabric retailers. This vibrant line was a fun one to design.

Here is a little sneak peek into the design process I used to create the main print in Roots & Wings.

 

This main print started on a little piece of graph paper with a little doodle.

This helps me to figure out the style and placement.

These are two of the main flowers in the collection. I scan or take a picture of my drawings and place them in my digital files in my computer. It is a lot of work and fine tuning to keep the personality of the original drawing. It is fun to look back and see how they either evolve or stay pretty much the same as I drew them first. To see more about my design process visit this Deena’s Creative Corner post.

Also, head on over to the Riley Blake site to see the whole Roots & Wings collection.

You can buy Roots & Wings in my etsy shop.

Look at some of the beautiful items we have created using Roots & Wings:
