New Tea Towel Design

June 24, 2009

I was designing a pattern for tea towels and first started with pencils (you can see it just by the scissors above). But I soon realised my hand didn’t draw the lines I wanted so did it by paper-cutting. I made several layers of circles and the result is…

These are pieces of paper which I keep from magazines, gift wrap, etc. It is very useful for making collage and finding interesting colourways. I also use them when I don’t want to be “skilful” and just feel like playing around with colours and shapes using scissors like a child.
