Hello!

My name is Erika. I'm in love with making art, collecting old things & chasing after my two kiddos. This blog is a peek into my happy accidents & plots of total world domination.

P-P-P-P Pattern Inspiration!

I have been so inspired by big bold patterns lately and they have been popping up in my sketches and drawings.  
I just want to drown myself in Houndstooth.  I already bought shoes in houndstooth and now it's showing up in my art work. I just love it- I can't get enough.
Vintage Wallpaper- I love the traditional wallpaper  I was gifted a special stack of vintage wallpaper and the balance and the colors are amazing!
Chevron or the zigzag!  Seriously so much energy in this pattern.
Florals.   Isn't it gorgeous?
My ever love for stripes.  What's inspiring you lately?

that Houndstooth is amazing! And the blue wallpaper - love it. Vintage wallpaper sounds like it'd be so fun and unique to work with.

I bought a houndstooth jacket a few years ago but I thought it would go out of style. I' so glad it didn't!!! That coat is amazing

I love stripes, too! Lately I've been fascinated with herringbone. Great picks.

Stripes and vintage wallpaper are my favorite patterns. I can't say that anything in particular has been inspiring me lately.
