Make Art, Reuse, Simplify!


When I made this handmade card I did not think of fabric. But the way I create art leads often to design. I love to reuse my illustrations and make new products from them.

I am so pleased with this fabric, made from the doodling. I thought this would not work as a repeatable pattern but it does! If you have followed my blog for some time you know how I hate simplified stuff. But I recently I have begun to turn more to simple things. And I have started to look my own work differently. These two designs don't really look complicated.I find it both funny and bittersweet to to be so excited about simple designs and simplifying! You will see some projects with a new twist in the near future!

  1. I know you are talking more about design and art when you speak about simplifying, but it struck a chord with me. I have been going through a phase lately in my personal life, regarding simplifying things. Simple is always best, in my opinion. :) It is the absence of chaos. Peace.

  2. After reading your comment I began to think that my yearn for simplicity in design might well be connected to the changes I have made in my personal life. I have done some reorganization while waiting for a new family member, a beagle puppy! That must have affected to my aesthetics too! Thanks for your great comment!
