I also made a matching pattern paper for scrapbooking, gift wrapping and decorating. 

Happy Easter!

inspired by henna:

a study on indian henna painting patterns

espresso lover’s dream. 

seems like patterns are the thing now:) i was playing a little more with the same rhombus tile and more colours.

i think i should make it into a rubber stamp.

a pattern version of the rhombus tile i posted the other day.

spoon attack vol 3

and the third one in pale blue. i can imagine it as the inside lining of recipe book covers. or as a wrapping paper for a baby’s silver spoon:)

spoon attack vol 2 

with the approaching easter and all, i chose a springish but not too bright colour scheme 

spoon attack vol 1

my love and affection for old spoons is widely known:) this simple spoon pattern is a spin from of a bigger kitchen-and-morning-coffee project that i am working on at the moment. 

"the world is perfect"

drawing mandalas is indeed a good way to improve patience, single-mindedness and perfection. as i draw my mandalas by hand, not with a computer, they do have some inaccuracies in their otherwise so perfect symmetry. 

this is one piece of a pattern i am working on.

Happy Mother’s Day!

With special greetings to my dear friend and a supermum Kirke
