If you're anything like us, you love to catch a look a creatives' processes. You probably also find it mesmerising to watch them work. This afternoon (4 pm UK time) you can catch Este Macleod's Instagram live painting demo. I've watched her work before and it's very addictive and informative, well worth tuning in or catching the replay!
Today I'd love to share with you this gorgeous new line of fun, painterly tea towels...
"My name is Elena O'Neill and I am an illustrator, pattern designer and product maker specialising in watercolour! I am from Wiltshire, England and have the drive to create patterns featuring anything and everything, which I love to apply to handmade products!
I usually create pencil cases and makeup bags from my patterns, but I have recently created a new range of tea towels in preparation for my first solo craft stall!
I am looking to continue to extend my product range in the future into more homewares, and I am really excited about"!
You can shop the full range of tea towels and other goodies, in Elena's Etsy shop:
Grab a cuppa and tune in for this week's Designer Spotlight with Illustrator & Surface Designer, Brooke Glaser.

This completely adorable set of birthday stationery was designed by Christine Gardner. Starting with a pattern collection, Christine then applied the characters to these wonderful cards.
"I have just launched this new collection which I was only brave enough to complete after taking your FolioFocus course! I was never confident with characters at all but enjoyed that week on the Folio Focus course so much I thought I would give it a go! I came up with the pattern collection first and then added the characters to cards. I'd like to combine the two soon and create a character pattern." - Christine Gardner
These and many other beautiful designs are available to buy on Christine's site: christinegardner.co.uk/shop-1
Hello Rise Design and Shine friends, we are fast approaching Trade Show season and as many of you will be heading to NYC for Surtex and Blueprint, we thought it would be great to arrange a little meetup.
This will be a chance to celebrate a successful first day of the Surtex and Blueprint over a drink or two, mingle and swap notes about the two shows. It's a gorgeous venue with pretty NYC skyline views, perfect for catching up with old friends and meeting new ones :)
Please add anyone coming to either show to this invite yourselves, and feel free to share in other groups. All are welcome to join us (exhibitors, walkers, partners friends, the more the merrier).
The lounge operates on a first come, first served basis, so check back a couple of days before to see if anything has changed. Guests must be 21 and over
Hope to see you there!
It's May and the print and surface pattern trade shows are coming up fast! Here we have some more luscious art in the second part of our Blueprint show preview. Enjoy! And best of luck to to everyone showing, we can't wait to meet you :)
