This is a beautiful and practical handbook on how to develop and use patterns and motifs on a
wide range of domestic items, ranging from clothing to wallpaper. The book shows how to create and choose ideas and pull themes
together. It also teaches how to develop whole 'looks' for interior spaces
starting with mood boards or sketchbooks. There is guidance on
colours and selecting your palette as well as developing motifs and
patterns and looking at layout and composition ideas. Various surface
decoration techniques such as stencils, applique and screenprinting are
also discussed. Finally, there are suggestions on how readers can
develop and use their own designs and patterns.
Techniques for printing onto a range of surfaces are included, from
fabric and stationery to furniture, wallpaper and painted surfaces.
Screenprinting is used for cushions, curtains, blinds, placemats, table
runners, wallpaper and so on. Stencil techniques are described for use
on floors, walls, furniture, fabrics and other soft furnishings. And
applique and mixed media ideas for decorating wall panels, cushions and
general soft furnishings are also given. All in all, this
is an excellent introduction to designing and using your own patterns
and motifs in a creative way.
