Reef Midi Tote Bag
Escape to a tropical reef....
This pattern is pure escapism.......
When I am printing my lino plates I always make a few test printings on scrap paper to sample colours and check how the image will look.
As these are disposable test pieces not to be used publicly, I quite often over-lay different prints as I am pretty stingy with my paper.
One afternoon I was staring at this collage of images and I began seeing in it the sea and islands and my imagination drifted away to memories of sailing trips......and that was how I began to make the pattern we now call Reef.
It is a classical summery blue and white bag with accents of sand and beige and it feels subtly nautical and watery and you might be able to spot bubbles and waves and shoals of fish hidden in the pattern. It puts me in mind of holidays in sunny places and that can not be a bad thing.
