Sandra’s logo and floral design — I must admit, I was having so much fun designing it that the project kind of got away on me. The brief was to design a product tag (and logo) that Sandra could attach to the bags she makes (and having designed the tag, it seemed a shame not to design a business card too). I gave Sandra a choice of bordeaux red or olive green… and green was the winner on the day.
Sandra requested a Jacobean-style pattern and this is what I came up with. It took quite a bit of experimentation with my watercolour paints to make the texture look embroidered. I’ve never used watercolour without pen and ink before (strange though that may sound) and I really enjoyed the challenge. We’re both very happy with the results.
Update: you can now visit Sandra’s blog at my bagirl world.

Fantastic design. I THINK i would have gone with the red, but who knows what I would have picked. Both designs are beautiful.
Thank you. Yes, I think I prefer the red too (most of the time, anyway) – although there’s a nice balance to the green one… I’m glad I didn’t have to make the final decision!
Thanks for all your likes and comments. They’re much appreciated.
