This week I would like to share with you the stunning work of Mel Smith.
I discovered Mel's work through twitter and fell in love instantly!
Her brilliant use of colour combined with her ditsy, feminine patterns make such appealing designs appropriate for all ages.
Mel sells her beautiful designs on a variety of products including wallpaper, art prints, cards, iPhone cases, laptop skins and magnets. She sells through a variety of online stores, including Society 6, Folksy, Wallpapered.com and Etsy.
I love the colour palette and pattern on the iPhone cover below. This is one of my favourite designs by Mel Smith; it's fresh and sophisticated but with a playful edge.
Mel is a graduate of the Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design e-course.
She has gone on to become a successful surface pattern designer, having designs sold in John Lewis stores and boutiques.
Mel has also had her work featured on many blogs and in magazines - including the world renowned Print and Pattern book.
I particularly love Mel's Christmas designs, some of which I have shown below.
I find it difficult to choose a favourite as I really like them all. Again, her use of colour and pattern are just fabulous, creating designs that appeal to people of all ages!
