Colour of the Week: French Rose

This week's Colour of the Week is French Rose

French Rose might seem like quite a spring summer colour to pick in the autumn but I love a pop of pink colour to keep things warm and fresh in the autumn and winter, in clothing and in my work!

Below I have created some inspirational colour palettes featuring French Rose..

Black & White Pattern Collection

I recently worked on some Black & White Pattern designs for the latest Tigerprint contest. The brief asked you to create a black and white collection of surface pattern, using only black and white, no grey!

Below are the 5 designs I entered into the competition, I'm really big on colour and don't often work in just black and white so it was a good challenge and I'm so pleased with how they turned out! All the designs are made from my original drawings of flowers, leaves and other shapes, the texture of the line really shines in black and white!
