Continuing on the fruity theme this week, I've been developing designs with pineapples and playing with scale. These pineapple motifs started life as part of a one-off handprinted piece called 'Ten Pineapples' for my eldest niece's 10th birthday back in August. She's mad on this spikey fruit and the print takes pride of place above her desk, which is adorned with the pineapple pen pot we made in the holidays filled with matching stationery! I wanted to make the new designs fun yet add a wild tropical aspect. I've chosen a new colour scheme that has a darker element and used large variations in scale. The series of placement prints progressively zooms in revealing the patterns within the pattern.
