Valentines Spotlight

It's February, it's the month of lurve! so to celebrate I bring you the second spotlight on lots of lovely dovey patterns and designs from my talented friends who have all either completed or currently taking the Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design course.

I started the first module over a year ago now with some of the following designers - it's been great to see how everyone's styles have developed and also to hear all the success stories. To check out even more designers please take a look in the wonderful Little White Book of Surface Pattern Designers.

So let's start the love fest!
