This collection consists of seven patterns themed around essential oils and their ingredients. I tried to vary my techniques, mixing line art and solid motifs. In the fourth pattern, ‘Peppermint’, I layered elements for more depth. A few patterns stand out as my favourites. These are the third pattern – ‘Flora’ (seen here on a plate) and the fifth pattern – ‘Spice’, in which I incorporated hand-lettering. I really love the colour palette, which just goes to show that careful consideration here plays a big part in the end result.
I am pleased with the variety in both colour use and motifs. Each pattern works cohesively in the collection and it is clear which pattern is the main ‘hero’. I could have perhaps made a lavender pattern, seeing how widely used the oil is. But I had to stop somewhere!
