This design began from a desire to make my own version of some fabulous wallpaper in the background of a photo of Ava Gardner (see fabric image below). After a visit to the Filmy Fern House in Glasgow, I decided to use some drawings I made there to create the pattern. I wanted the leaves to be outlined in gold but, as Spoonflower doesn't do metallics (yet!), I created a trompe l'oeil gold effect instead. The green centre of the leaves is textured to resemble block printing, and the black background has a subtle linen pattern.
