Modern twist on a vintage theme..

I was exploring vintage floral wallpaper and fabrics and decided to paint some lovely old roses and leaves. I continued on with the paint and created a  few colourful medallions, it felt more like doodling than anything else..making them up as I went along. When it came to piecing the design together, I become totally absorbed in layering the work to create a sense of depth and interest. After toying with different background colours I landed on this fresh pea green hue and fell in love. Once my fabric came back from the printers I was so excited to piece it all together into this clutch...to me it looks vintage with a modern edge. If you like, you can click the picture to be transported to my Etsy shop.
