More Spoonflower Swatches

Another 5 swatches, I've included a picture showing more of each design because an 8"swatch does not always show all the design. You can click on the Spoonflower links to see the design on fabric, wrapping paper or wallpaper.

Painted Dogs, Bird and Rainbow Pencil

Digitally painted, painted dogs

The bird was created on my tablet and cut out with my digital cutter [KNK Zing Air]

I used a multi-coloured pencil for this page in my sketchbook.

Then I went over it with water, don't know why as its not a water soluble pencil.

I used a fine liner pen to add marks following the direction of the pencil.
The bird was taken from an old greetings card.

3D Printed Items

These are some of the items we have printed with the 3D printer. None of them have been designed by me, they were all found on the internet. I've painted them though which I found quite a challenge.

This is what the castle looked like before painting.
then after many attempts at painting - I wasn't keen on the colours on the previous attempts.
You can buy the plastic in different colours so they are not always brown to start with.
We have had a lot of spiders in the garden this year as you can see from this photo. [click on the photos for a closer look]

Sizzling Circles and Rhine Drawing

I went on a Rhine cruise a few years back and took some photos with my tablet. This was drawn on my tablet taken from one of the photos.

This is a repeating pattern partly done on my tablet and finished off on my computer. I'll be adding it to my collection of fabrics and wrap in Spoonflower.

Partridge and Turtle Doves

Designed on my tablet and cut on the digital cutting machine [KNK Zing Air]
I used the partridge as a stencil in the top picture before painting.

Various Paintings

I drew one flower on my tablet then tried it with different colours in Photoshop on the computer.

I copied from a photo and made a blobby painting of my Grandson also on my tablet.

Another tablet painting, I put on the texture after transferring to the computer.

A flower in a doily was sketched on the tablet and coloured in Photoshop.

I'm trying to think of a new fabric/stitching project to do but the brain seems a bit dead.
