Pretty printy!

Bonbi Forest Admin / May 16, 2014

When I made the little lovers scarves earlier in the year I LOVED how the big painty smudges came out with the little scattered hearts with eyes and I’ve been playing with painty smudges again, this time in a new paint spots design.

When I started painting the spots I knew I wanted to incorporate some Bonbi style foliage into the design but wasn’t sure whether it should be part of the paint spots or separate. I had a couple of experiments (One pictured here which I may just yet use…) but settled on the plain spots which I worked some leaves into when I made the final design in that ever trusty tool, Photoshop.

It was nice to get back to basics with the paints and splatting the swishing the paint around to make this design. It is available on a scarf which is printed in a lovely dark blue with coral (who doesn’t love a bit of blue and coral?!) and reminiscent of a camp fire burning in the darkening night…It’s the the perfect shoulder wrap for those chillier summer evenings. That’s how I’ll be wearing mine!

I have also developed new tea towels for the shop…just in time to make doing the drying a bit less dull when you would rather be out running around taking in the fresh air and the sunshine!


All available in the shop…
