Hi to anyone who is reading this, I haven’t been on here for a while oops! I’d just thought I add a little blog to show what I have recently been doing.
When taking a trip to a market last Christmas I saw a stall called Wraptious. At this stall they were selling artwork on various items e.g. pillows, cards, coasters etc. I loved the look of the designs so I decided to check out their website and noticed they have a competition to design an image which is printed on a pillow. This competition is held twice a year which amazingly is free to enter and allows a maximum five entries. It is based on a popularity contest, the work that has the most likes or shares on Facebook or pillows purchased via their website wins. The winner will have a two year contract with Wraptious where they will promote and sell your work. So I thought, why not have a go! Here are my five entries:
The patterned images were created using a design I had used for a different competition. I just took the basic shape and repeated it in various designs until I created a pattern that flowed continuously. From there I researched into restricted colour palettes as I tend to go over board with colours. Trying to keep the pattern symmetrical was easy and where each specific colour went was just instinct.
If you have read my other posts you may recognise the Octopus and the Water Highway images which I created when I was at University.
I am pleased with the outcomes, I could have spent more time on them but the amount of work I would have produced would be endless and it would have been harder to choose just five designs.
Thank you for reading this post. I would be extremely grateful if you click on the little facebook symbol on the image below (top right corner below) which will direct you to the Wraptious facebook page (you must log into your own Facebook to be able to like). From there if you hopefully like my designs you can click on the like symbol on my individual images, post (must be on Wraptious facebook page) or even purchase a pillow from their website! The more points I gain the closer I could be in the top 12 which would be a great honour. 🙂
