Introduction
I have been designing my hand dyed and hand printed fabric lengths using a range of fabrics and multiple surface design techniques. As a professional senior graphic designer/illustrator in a previous career, I have always had an interest in creating imagery, prints, illustrations, posters and publications using digital processes. This interest has led to some fascinating explorations in the field of digitally created fabrics and textiles. This post centers on my new digitally designed fabric collection - "Wall Flower".

"Wall Flower" - A New Collection of Digitally Designed Fabrics
The "Wall Flower" collection of digitally designed fabrics is a unique series of vintage style fabric designs based on images of my post-graffiti artwork depicting distressed, worn, aged and organic botanic illustrations found originally in illustrated books and now reinterpreted on contemporary urban walls in our cityscapes.

The techniques employed to create my original post-graffiti artwork included hand painted, stamped and silk screened imagery using fibre reactive dyes and pigment paint on cotton. The imagery was then scanned and digitally reworked in Photoshop to create fabric colors that reference colors of bygone eras. The colors have been sensitively and painstakingly created.

These funky, contemporary botanical designs can be used for interior design, clothing items and other decorative purposes. There are five color-ways in the "Wall Flower" collection that are available for purchase.

The printed designs are available in the following natural fibres from Spoonflower - basic cotton ultra, Kona® cotton ultra, cotton poplin ultra, light weight cotton twill, cotton spandex jersey, linen cotton canvas ultra, organic cotton knit ultra, organic cotton sateen ultra, heavy cotton twill and silky crepé de chine. The printed designs are also available in the following Spoonflower polyester range of fabrics - satin, performance pique, poly crepe de chine, silky faille, performance knit, modern jersey, fleece, minky, sport lycra, eco canvas and faux suede. Fabric widths vary from 40" (102 cm), 42" (107 cm), 54" (137 cm), 56" (142 cm), and 58" (147 cm) depending on the chosen fabric. The designs are also available to use as self-adhesive wallpaper and giftwrap paper - see My Spoonflower Collection for more information. There is no minimum order and the printed fabrics range from a test swatch (8" x 8" or 20 cm x 20 cm) to a fat quarter (21" x 18" or 53 cm x 46 cm) or to whatever your yardage requirements may be.

These fabric designs can be used for wearable art, accessories, furnishing and interior design projects. If you would like to purchase fabric lengths from my "Wall Flower" collection please email me at - Marie-Therese - for pricing and/or any other information.

My "Wall Flower" collection - for wearable art, accessories, interior and other decorative design projects - are shown below. Each work in the collection below shows a fat quarter (21" x 18" or 53 x 46 cm) view of the printed fabric design and a one yard length (36" or 91.5 cm) view of the printed fabric design.
