DESIGNER - jo chambers

I loved this exciting new collage work from designer Jo Chambers of Studio Legohead. Jo is known for her painterly and hand drawn floral prints (as featured in the P&P Nature book) but recently she has been creating some very striking paper collages. These in turn have led to Jo developing patterns for fabric designs from the paper cuttings. Jo's love of colour and collage also inspired her to make some wearable cutouts in a spin off Etsy shop called Studio Other StuffShe is a big fan of wearing an accessory, and after looking for something new to wear and not finding it Jo decided to make some herself. Her brooches are all hand made and come in one off hand painted gift box.

CARDS - noi publishing

I always love to see a new collection from Noi Publishing and for Spring Summer 2017 designer Tracy Francis doesn't disappoint. She has designed a range full of colour and tropical summer fun with a collection of greetings cards, wrapping paper and stationery. Look out for paper pom poms, tropical birds, palm trees, cacti, fruity head ware and 'girls jackets'.See the whole fun range and many more online here.
