Featured Designs with Rise Design and Shine – FolioFocus


Recently I have been taking part in a portfolio challenge called #FolioFocus with Rise Design and Shine. The briefs have been brilliant and very inspiring. All the other artists involved are producing some amazing work at a really high standard. I have lots of new Instagram posts and new people I have followed and its been great to be able to interact with other like minded people.

Putting my new IpadPro to the test has been great fun and is keeping me learning new things everyday. I have been using it to draw my initial ideas and after sending them to my creative cloud I can develop them further and play around more with the colours.

Week One – Blooms Between

The first week I was in my element as the challenge was floral themed. I had great fun creating the set of patterns and displaying them on mock ups. The colour theme will actually go really well in my lounge so I may get some printed up 🙂

Week Two – Sweet Greetings

The second week I have developed my floral designs further for the greetings cards challenge. After the chaos that has been going on here with hospital and my husband being away it was really nice to see that some of my designs have been featured over on the Rise Design and Shine Blog. This has given me a little confidence boost. We all need these from time to time. Here are some of my designs for The FolioFocus sweet greetings.

I am really enjoying taking part in this challenge. And I look forward to seeing what designs I come up with for the challenge. I am learning new things all the time. Like to challenge myself everyday.  Watch this space for new designs.
