Researching wallpaper: Rebecca Ellen

The new project is all about wallpaper. Researching approaches to wallpaper I remembered Rebecca Ellen. I had looked at her work in a previous project. She designs wallpaper combining print with embroidery. I love the idea of embroidered wallpaper! It makes wallpaper into something loveable and special like little embroidered pictures or hand made plushies. Although the printed element of her designs are more expressive where my work is usually more graphic the idea of combining printed wallpaper with stitching is something that I definitely want to have a go at this project. Heres a couple of her designs I liked most:

'Beside The Seaside'

'Seaside Town'
