Freebie: Pattern with christmas stockings

Posted on in All, DIY, Freebies, Graphic Design, Illustrations, Pattern, Stationery.

The last few days I have repeatedly drawn christmas stockings to provide a new freebie for you guys. From a lot of christmas stockings I now made a pattern that you can download, print and use as wrapping paper.

Of course you can do much more with the pattern. You can make small bags, envelopes, cards or use it as a cover for a booklet. You also can use it as a coloring page or a mood tracker. Or you cut out the single chistmas stockings and make a garland out of them to decorate a table in your home.In addition to a neutral black version of the pattern – which is particularly suitable for a coloring page – there are different single- and multicolored versions of the pattern available. I already used my first prints as wrapping paper for small gifts.

Have fun printing and coming up with your own ideas on how to use the pattern. And I hope some of you will show your creations on instagram or elsewhere.

New autumn rubberstamps

Posted on in All, Art, Graphic Design, Illustrations, Rubberstamps, Stationery.

Autumn is fast approaching and this year I’m prepared! At least as far as for having autumn-like rubberstamps for decorating my snailmail. For some time mushroom illustrations have been increasing in my sketchbooks. Some of them are now available as rubberstamps, so you can celebrate autumn with your snailmail friends as well.In total, there are eight new mushroom rubberstamps. All created from my own illustrations. What I’m doing with the rest of the illustrations or if I’m even doing anything with them is not decided yet. Ofen I draw simply because of drawing and not for developing a product out of my illustrations.However, I can imagine making a whole mushroom stationery set with them. Containing rubberstamps, notepads, stationery paper, envelopes, wrapping paper, stickers, banderoles and more. Until I put this idea into concrete terms, I play around with the new rubberstamps for a little while.

Weekly pattern

Posted on in All, Art, Freebies, Illustrations, Pattern, Stationery, Work in progress.

I made a seamless vectorbased pattern out of my blue brushstroke pattern from last week. With the vectorization I reduced the colors to six colors only. So there are six shades of blue in the pattern. On the one hand I liked the effect the reduction has but on the other hand I had to reduce the colors because with to many colors the number of anchorpoints can really go out of control if you don’t do that. You don’t always have to use just six colors. It really depends on your pattern and of course the performance of your computer.

I made a new arrangment with the strokes. This a little bit uncontrolled than it was in the original. And because there are never enough free patterns out there I made four versions for you to download. The blue and rose pattern are landscape format and the green and grey are portrait format. They are all made for a A3 print. Bind some books with them, wrap gifts or make other cool stuff with it!

Of course you can print the pattern in any size you want. Just choose your favorite format in the printer dialogue. If you resize the pattern with your paper format the printer will make the pattern smaller so it fits on your format. If you want the pattern to have the original size, you have to check or uncheck the box for that option in your printer dialogue.

Please resepct that every pattern is just for personal use only. Have fun and you’re welcome to share your creations by making a comment, write a message on facebook or link me at instagram.

In our home it´s a tradition to make a little gift at St. Nicholas Day and I would like to incooperate this tradition into my blog. Because of that you will get a hand-illustrated pattern as a freebie today.

To match the season it is a pattern of little christmas tree branches in different sizes and colors. You can use the pattern for little christmas gifts, making envelopes or little (flat)bags or use the pattern as a background in other projects like your scrapbooking album. Please respect that the pattern are made for personal use only.

I made the pattern in different colors, so that hopefully everybody of you find a color that he or she likes. Lightgreen, Lightblue, Mossgreen, Black, Greytones and Lilac-Grey. And the same colors Lightgreen, Lightblue, Mossgreen, Black, Greytones, Lilac-Grey are also available in a different size of the pattern.

If you aren´t afraid of printing with some more ink onto your paper, then there are also some more variations. These colors have white branches and a colored background. You can have Old rose, Sand, Black und Grey. And of course there is also a option with another pattern size for Old rose, Sand, Black, and Grey.

I hope you have a great St. Nicholas Day and have fun with the pattern! And it would be awesome if you would link to my blog if you made something with the pattern.

Love,

I always liked to draw little leaves and twigs and everything herbal – equal real or fantasy. Even the stamps are made of some of my illustrations. But my new project let me go a little bit further and wilder with all that and I can draw plants as much as I want. And it´s so fun! It also requires that I came up with new little plants, combine different elements in a new way and just play around with them.

It all began really innocent with a paper laying around and some free time – late at night.
