Railings and first thoughts

About time I started putting stuff up on here and probably a good way to start is to say a little about what I've been up to over the summer. A fantastically ambitious and exciting train tour across Europe, with all the family in tow, yielded some unexpected rewards and inspiration....mostly in the form of railings! We all decided to keep journals......a very good way to while away the many hours we spent travelling......and mine became focused on the beautiful patterns I kept coming across in the various railings and window designs in all the different cities we visited (Amsterdam, Warsaw, Krakow, Budapest, Zagreb, Split, Ljubljana, Vienna, Prague, Berlin and Paris!).

Photographs got printed out on a very handy little Pogo Polaroid printer, then translated into drawings, which became embryonic pattern designs. I can feel a range of wallpaper coming on. Watch this space....
