Inspired by Moonlight

I have been designing for the Gingezel™ Perfect in Plum collection, adding some softer silvery designs that are inspired by the shimmer of moonlight, and have a contrast between that light silvery tone and deep plum shadows. These will be richly patterned designs, and because of the time lag of test printing fabric, they are showing up first as fashion accessories and home decor accents. Here is one of them on a messenger bag.

Good Light

At last there have been two days of good light, and we are as caught up on Christmas preparations as we can be, so we have been catching up on photographs of fabric. The good light comes with a down side - wind warnings. Yesterday three semi-trailor trucks blew over on a road not far west of here. But that wind is what is keeping the clouds away. We like to photograph in natural light, and the autumn here has not cooperated. But today we got good photos of our new Ocean Villa Terrace designs, some Blue Green Reflections and a group of Limestone Hills designs:

Coordinating Houseware and Fashion

When I design a fabric collection, I use the same designs and inspiration for a range of housewares, and fashion accessories available through Zazzle. I have decided to add flash shows for each collection for those of you who like a coordinated look for your home, or for yourself. Here are examples from the Black Plus Collection:

I love putting designs on these Rickshaw bags!

Christmas is coming

It really is starting to feel like Christmas, and we love the limited edition gift wrap Spoonflower has this year. I stocked up and am lining some shelves as well as wrapping gifts. On fabric, I am busy releasing new designs for the blue moods collection.Limited Edition Gift Wrap by Gingezel Read More...
