I'm influenced by the ocean in my designs. I have a need to draw.. it's crazy but I can only go a few days without drawing and then I get the urge so strongly that I just have to sit down and draw something.... I LIVE

Thank you Debby, actually it was hand dyed and then the marlin hand painted, then scanned and worked into repeat :-)
Wow, this looks like a hand painted batik! Beautiful work!
I thought I'd post up a sample print on 100% Cotton.

Gorgeous designs, Sylvie.
Sheila, so nice of you to visit. :-) Thanks for your super comment! Yes I was thinking mainly curtains, but duvet cover,pillow slips, scatter cushions. With each repeat being 14 inches square.. (about 35 cm) they would make a great centre piece to the cushion cover... I think they'd even look great as shower curtains, if it were possible to print onto that sort of fabric, they could be used as outer curtains to plain plastic shower curtains.. but I'd get it printed on a lighter fabric than this like silk crepe de chine, or cotton silk or even cotton voile ... something light and airy. :-)

Thank you Julie of cjldesigns , I'm glad you like it and it now nestles in your fav folder. :^D I think that this design would also make a great wrapping paper if I made the design repeat smaller...any takers?
Thank you Amy_G for adding this as a favourite.. I really appreciate it. :^D
Thank you Su, :^) Hmm the rest of the story huh... well I finished working on the design. Arranged for a sample swatch and then sent an email to the person who'd asked me that question and waited. And then voila I sold 2 yards of fabric... :^D I don't know for sure if the sale was to the same person who'd contacted me earlier, but no matter. So long as they're happy with it :^)
This is gorgeous. I like the way you've combined the mirrored marlins in all their different arrangements with the non-mirrored ones. Also the description of what you get in the different substrates (fabric, wallpaper, decals). The top note under the title is tantalising: "I'd been working on this design for a while when someone wrote me an email and asked if I had any ideas as to where they could buy some fabric with Bl..." Now I really want to know the rest of the story!
So I've set the wall paper repeat up differently to the Fabric repeat.. Just for fun :^)
Actually I sold 2 yards of this the other day :>D whoohoo!
Thank you Penny of Bluevelvet, for your kind words. I hand painted the Marlin onto fabric and dyed some background fabric then digitally put the two together :>)
This is so gorgeous Sylvie, I love the design and the color palette
