I had fun last week, creating a bunch of patterns for a client to choose from to use on a 2008 diary cover. Neisha Crosland-esque was my self-assigned brief, as the diary hopes to appeal to the sophisticated working woman.(ps: Check out the real deal at Neisha Crosland’s site)Erk – late addition to this post. I only found Neisha Crosland’s website when I wanted to link to it here, which was long after all these patterns were complete. My inspiration for these designs were bits and bobs I found in my scrapbooks. Now, looking at her website, I see her Tudor Rose is spookily similar to the first pattern posted here. I’d never seen it before and didn’t copy hers, honest! I must just have channelled the Neisha vibe somehow.
