I wanted to start sharing some of my new releases here on the blog with little backstories about each of the designs. Look for a number of posts over the upcoming weeks highlighting my new favorite products.
First up is the Painterly Lines Patterned Card. A lot of my work lately has gravitated towards geometric shapes and patterns. The lines were actually painted with black gouache before being scanned into my computer. I then used a color palette inspired by a dress from Chanel's Métiers d'Art 2013/14 collection.
Chanel's collection debuted in my hometown of Dallas last December. When I saw the outfit below, I immediately fell in love with the mix of coral pinks and cool blue-grays and knew I wanted to incorporate those colors into a card design.
You can shop the Painterly Lines card in the shop here.
