Print Ideas for 2012

Under the Microscope – science and design collide with detailed images shown in overblown scale. 

 Ink Blot Camos – watercolor and ink spots create an organic update. 

 Eastern Color Block – influenced by Bauhaus and Mondrian with a hand painted feel.

Pop Art Conversationals – bold, outlined shapes take inspiration from Roy Lichtenstein’s technique. 

Tribal Wash – ethnic prints that are hand-painted yet look as if rain has washed part of the design away

Abstract Elements – tie-dye textures that take inspiration from the earth such as minerals and other organic matter.

Bohemian Folk - geometrics, paisleys and floral designs influenced by Ballets Russes. 

Baroque Opulence – rich, ornamental, embroidery inspired designs with an antique feel.

Geometrical prints - all about irregular shapes and designs.

Floral Prints: floral impacts are so stylish and trendy, they give you a fashionable and trendy look.
