Fancy Flourishes

A couple patterns on the flourishy side of things!

Back to Basics

Some basic little summer patterns for a basic summer day! My little 4 year old cousin helped pick out the colors for these patterns and the square pattern was her own doing!

Color Palette Inspiration

I love creating color palettes from old photographs! I love to scan in old photos and pull colors from them and use them in a modern-ish pattern, like the one below:

New Journal!

For graduation, I recieved a sweet gift from one of my cousins...a homemade journal! It was perfect because I had just filled up my last one, and I had been looking for a new one. I've been inspired to start making some of my own's the first one using one of my own patterns!

The Bird and the Beads...

The bird is back! I love how these colors came together. Yesterday, my cousin was wearing a cute little plastic beaded necklace in these colors, and I just loved the combination!

Future Tattoo Artist?!

So...I was just playing around with some different patterns this afternoon, and my uncle walked by and said, "Wow! That looks like a cool tattoo!" Not exactly what I was going for, but...sure! I had a good laugh!

LinnieBell Sketchbook

So...I have been trying to figure out a way to make my blog a little more exciting than just posting patterns, so...I think I'm going to start posting some things from my sketchbook. I love my sketchbook because I am always putting little scraps of paper, fabric and what-not in there, and it is fun to look back and see where inspiration comes from! We'll see how this goes!

I had some extra time today, so here's a couple summer-ish patterns!
I love these colors together!

Random Bird...

Kind of a random little bird, but I like it!

Book Love...

I got back from Idaho yesterday afternoon...such a fun trip! Good friends, good times! I'm trying to catch up on a few things today, but I wanted to post some of my favorite pattern/inspiration/color books up... I find myself looking through these books quite often! Happy reading!

Tricia Guild has such a beautiful style...simply beautiful!

These Print + Pattern books are excellent reference books!
