#554 is a playful little thing. Polka dots, pebbles on a beach? The colors sing, turquoise on yellow green. The colors are so intense because this one was printed on rice paper, a few white fibers are visible. See you tomorrow with the last popping pattern!

You may have to be a bit of a color theory junkie to appreciate this one. It is pretty close to a complimentary discord. The complimentary part of that phrase points out that the yellow green and reddish purple are at opposite sides of the color wheel. And discord points out that the value (ie the lightness or darkness of a color) of the purple has been lightened to a similar value as the yellow. What that all boils down to is it causes a thing in your eye called reticulation. A vibration of sorts.
I'm bet this is too much information. I probably shouldn't even go into the contrast between the transparency of the background versus the opacity of the lattice. So I'll just cut this short, and say Hey! Look at this, it's pretty cool!

Good morning! Today's (elle)ement kicks off a week of patterns that pop! People often use pattern pieces in their block of (elle)ements to fill the space between their favorite "things". But these patterns are strong enough to play all by themselves thank you very much! Today's piece is black on a citrusy lime green, yummy.

If you have been waiting for a pop of color, this may be the one. A geranium printed in white over a bright red background. A few creases add surface texture. See you back here on Monday!
Maybe I need to do something a little different on Monday? I wonder what that would be?

It's been a while since we've had a pretty little flourish. These work well a a start or finish to a line or a corner in a block. Strong enough to be able to contain the busyness within. Is busyness a word? It is now. Enjoy! $25, just like all the others. Visit the blog in "web version" to see all the details to purchase.

A matching set for all you lovebirds out there! #540 is on the right, #541 on the left, they are slightly different in color, but look great together. After this week, if they haven't sold, I am fine with breaking the set up. Enjoy your day, no matter how you spend it!

A shooting star to start your day! Thanks to all the folks who passed the link to my blog around yesterday, it was a lot of fun (for me anyhow.) You all deserve a gold star! This one, like all the others is $25, and would be a great place to start your collection.

This pretty bird has been tucked away in my "favorite" pile for a while. It has two layers of prints, one on pattern tissue, and one on rice paper. One of the thick fibers from the rice paper curled around the bird's breast, a perfect happy accident. $25, just like all the others. See you Monday!
