Wildflowers (Very) Mini Pattern Collection

Monday, June 24, 2024

She thought of her favorite things: wiggles of bunny noses, the warmth of her patchwork quilt, fresh pumpkin pie, and the first wildflower blooms of Spring. Memories of running barefoot through the colorful meadows filled her mind and heart...




Sing with me, won't you?  

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, 
bright copper kettles and warm wooly mittens.  
Brown paper packages tied up with strings-  
these are a few of my favorite things!

This VERY mini collection is a bit different than my others, in that there are several color palettes represented above. The reason I did this was because I honestly had a hard time picking just one set of colors for these patterns and the same motifs are used in many of the prints. They looked great in SO. MANY. PALETTES. and for so many different applications.  They made me happy just as stand-alone prints by themselves, but I think they also would look good paired with so many easy blenders like stripes, gingham, and polka dots. 

Too many good choices- what is an artist to do? Why, pick the current faves and run with it! :)

I love the neutral muted tones of this gray-green number, perfect for wallpaper for someone not wanting to commit to bright pops of color in their house.

The lilac and pinks, below, are perfect for wallpaper in a little girl's nursery or a cheery laundry room.



Want a statement wall that wows?  I like this combination of muted pink, orange, and rust.  I think it would look even better once the room is staged with a neutral couch, rug, and artwork. Personally, I'd pair it with vintage looking gold frames and thrifted oil paintings.





But enough talk of wallpaper for the moment.... Let's see what these wildflowers look like on babies.  

(I say this because babies are ALSO truly one of my favorite things.)


Wallpaper and babies are both really fun, but what about everyday items like a catch all tote bag? (wink, wink). Well, I've tested that out too. 



  
These wildflowers and cross-stitch inspired x's are what I doodle most often. I can't tell you how many notebooks, store-front windows, and grocery lists that I have drawn these on over the years. Every time I draw them, they look a little different and every time they just make me happy in every season.

These four prints are truly some of my very favorites for their versatility both in application and color possibilities.
