I am a graphic designer & mixed media artist based in the UK. My interest in fabric design has sprung from a textile course I completed in 2010.
I enjoy producing surface designs.

I found these wonderful leaves in the garden. No idea what plant they are but they grow in clusters amongst fern and through cracks in the paving slab
I found these wonderful leaves in the garden. No idea what plant they are but they grow in clusters amongst fern and through cracks in the paving slabs. The reason I called my design velvet leaves is because on the back of the leaf are thick grooves of velvety stuff so the back is much more interesting than the front. I scanned them in and lightly manipulated in Pshop with some poster edges and a few colour changes to add interest to the design repeat.
This design now comes in a smaller size leaf, still using the same colours, and also I have a new version of this with a midnight blue/purple background.
Sorry for any inconvenience, this design is no longer for sale. Designers who sell and earn commissions have been asked to complete tax return forms and as a designer in the UK this would create a very complicated situation for me which would not be worth doing based on the small amounts I would earn. My designs may at some point be on sale in the UK.

Hi Rhondadesigns, I was drawn to these leaves because they are so unusual and they really are touchy feely with velvet veins.

What interesting leaves you have found to utilise in your design, peppermintoatty. I want to reach out and feel their texture, it looks so, well, velvety.
Wow, what a fantastic pattern. I love how it repeats and the palette is wonderful.
