So for a while there I was missing having something to work towards/ be excited about. Enter Outskirts 2011: A street festival happening in September by the folks at On William. I will be taking my studio to the street for a day and the next few months I will be busy designing my own range of stationery. The designs will be inspired by a retro theme, particularly from the late 60’s and early 70’s. I love the colours and patterns from this era- they were onto a good thing. I’m heading to Melbourne with my amazing boyfriend next week and I can’t wait to hit up Chapel St and Brunswick street for some thrift store wonderfulness.
Without further ado, here is a work in progress photo journal of my first attempt. This design was inspired by a floral pattern I saw on a colourful hippy kaftan. Enjoy!
