K is for Key
I’ve been having a lot of fun creating K is for Key. I have experimented a lot with the drawings and patterns whilst also silently singing to myself “I got the keeeeey,I got the secreeeett!” (click here if you haven’t heard said song and wondering what on earth I am waffling on about!)
I decided to create a mock up with the key patterns, using them on a book mock up which could be a journal or a notebook. I haven’t shared a lot of my mock ups before, but it has been really exciting playing around with these patterns and I am really pleased with the outcome.
Key drawings in black ink and dip pen.
This has become my favourite way to create the initial drawings, using black ink and dip pen, then scanning this in at a high resolution and working with it either in Photoshop or Illustrator.
K is for Key Pattern
I’ve also been trying to break out of my usual turquoise and green colour palette. After some research into different colour palettes I really liked this peachy/salmon pink and grey combination.
To finish off my K is for Key designs here is a simple framed print, with some little wooden houses. Which made me think this could also make a pretty ‘New Home’ print or card.

2015 kicked off with another round of creative bootcamp in the form of Lilla Rogers MATS bootcamp course. This first month we were tasked with creating a journal design inspired by Edwardian brooches.
The brooches I was most drawn to were simple designs with beautiful faceted gems in greens and purple.
Here are some of my initial doodles and drawings of the gems:
ink & wash drawings
Here is the final journal design I created. Using the simple brooch designs to create a repeating pattern as a cover design. With the addition of a hand written journal font to the left.
After creating the journal piece above, I was really inspired by the simplicity of the small colour swatches and the same facet design. So decided to play around with this to create a simple faceted polka dot design.
I have also been having a little play with an S is for scribble logo (see above) hopefully more of this to come in another post soon.
S is for Ship (in a bottle)
I is for Ink. This was my submission for Week 3 of MATS part B. Lots of ink bottles and nibs. I had a lot of fun drawing these. Here are some of the before doodles.
Keeping with the A to Z theme of this scribble blog, this week J is for Jelly! (or Jell-o for the Americans out there!) I’ve had a fun month drawing lots of Jelly for the Lilla Rogers MATS bootcamp online course. The brief was to create a Jelly themed bolt fabric design. I doodled a lot with pen and ink; I’ve been using my traditional dip pen as well as a new bamboo dip pen. I then scanned the black ink drawings & doodles into the computer and created these prints and patterns below using photoshop & illustrator. I do love creating patterns!
Here is the final bolt fabric design I submitted for the March MATS bootcamp gallery. It shows the final pattern I went for and a simple co-ordinate print.
Below are some more patterns I played around with using a similar colour palette.

C is for Cuckoo Clock. This was the first month of Lilla Rogers Mats Bootcamp online course. The brief was to create a mobile phone cover featuring a cuckoo clock design. We started off with a mini assignment drawing all sorts of cuckoo clocks and decorative doodles.
This was then scanned into the computer and translated into digital illustrations.
(above: some of my digital scribbling in progress)
I’ve been enjoying making lots of prints and patterns to match the main cuckoo clock illustration.
& here is my final cuckoo clock illustration (above) and the final layout I submitted to the February MATS bootcamp gallery (below)
After completing the mobile phone cover I couldn’t resist having a play with the patterns and repeats that were naturally appearing out of the cuckoo clock illustration; the borders and scallop designs and the Eidelweiss icons (Lilla loves a good icon!).Below are two bolt fabric designs and co-ordinating repeats using the cuckoo clock as the main starting point
