New Designs at Lemon Head Prints

announcements, fabric, home interiors, patterns, new collectionsCharlotte Brown

I have a new mini-collection of designs added to my portfolio of surface pattern designs at Lemon Head Prints...

Prairie floral pattern, ideal for interiors (low res)

The collection features pretty prairie style and ditsy floral patterns with yellows, whites and greens against a background of dark blues, greens and greys. They would make a very striking fabric or wallpaper design and are ideal for interiors.

Dark floral surface pattern design

The patterns are now licensed exclusively to Lemon Head Prints who are able to print the designs onto a variety of products, so please get in touch with them if you see a design here that you would like to use.

Parakeet Paradise Pattern Collection

I've gone just a little bit tropical for this surface pattern design collection: Parakeet Paradise.

Parakeet Paradise pattern collection by Lotti Brown

I wanted to create a dramatic and colourful collection with a tropical feel, perfect for summer style all year round!

I was inspired by some Crocosmia I drew from my own garden. A really easy plant to grow: hardy, and tolerates all kinds of neglect. But it looks so wonderfully tropical!

I decided to put the flowers with some parakeets, for an exotic jungle feel.

Parakeet drawings

And also some begonia flowers and leaves, drawn from a beautiful houseplant I have in my home.

Once I had drawn and coloured the flowers and birds by hand, I scanned them into the computer, and started to create first an artwork...

Then continuing to create matching patterns and designs to be used for fabrics and wallpapers.

You can see the final patterns below...

I really love the dark, dramatic backgrounds which set the bright colours off - tropical, but with year-round appeal.

I love to see what you've been inspired to create with my fabrics - and I've been very excited this week to see what the very talented Karen made with a custom fabric print of my Lapwing artwork - a gorgeous footstool...

Take a look - it's awesome, isn't it?

Stunning - lovely lapwing footstool created with a custom fabric print

I had loads of fun with this colourful 'Leafy Camo' surface pattern design collection...

Leafy Camo textile design collection by Lotti Brown

The motifs for this collection were created from real leaves and seedheads, which I made ink prints from...

Inky experiments!

I created layers of leaf prints, with all different colours, to create the camo patterns in the final designs...

New Surface Pattern Design Collection - Japanese Garden

behind the scenes, announcements, fabric, nature, new collections, patternsCharlotte BrownComment

A while back I shared a behind the scenes look of the development of a fabric collection and now I'm pleased to be able to share the finished designs in the final collection...

I worked with the theme of 'Japanese Garden', a sophisticated style, and a limited colour palette to create a series of six designs in different scales and tones...

I've shared some of the detail in the designs in the sneak peeks below... click on the images to enlarge them for a closer look...

You can now find many of these Japanese-inspired designs as cushions, bags, tops, notebooks, mugs and more in my Redbubble store PLUS on more products, fabrics and wallpapers at many of my Additional Stockists - take a look now!

Behind the Scenes of a Fabric Collection

inspiration, nature, sneak peek, fabric, behind the scenes, drawingsCharlotte BrownComment

I'm still busy working away on the live briefs set for us by the Art & Business of Surface Pattern Design Ultimate Portfolio Builder course, so I thought I'd share a quick behind the scenes look at what I've been up to with just one of the briefs...

The brief is for a collection of fabrics, to be presented to a quilting fabric company in the UK, Dashwood Studio,  I've been working mine around the theme of Japanese Garden - and I've been busy drawing the motifs and elements to make up the designs within the fabric collection...

My own photos of magnolias and cherry blossom are invaluable as inspiration

Beautiful flowers and foliage from a Japanese garden - from my own photos, or plucked from my own garden....

Foliage is just as important as flowers in a Japanese garden

I am working with a limited colour palette (limited in quantity of colours, but I am free to choose the colours themselves) and have been working hard to get a variety of colours in the collection, plus get the tones across the collection just right...

It's challenging but in a really great way - I'm having fun...   :)

Hopefully I will be back to share the final designs with you before too long, as well ~ Lotti :)

UPDATE: 4 September 2015 - you can now see the final designs here...

I do love seeing where my patterns end up...

My 'Totaig Mussels' design has been made into these beautiful curtains

Jo B was kind enough to send me photos of the gorgeous curtains she had made from fabric ordered from my Spoonflower store...

And told me:

"I now have a wonderful bespoke pair of curtains that I can't stop looking at!"

Thank you so much for sharing your curtains, Jo, I just LOVE to see where my patterns end up :)
