HELLO & WELCOME to the 2nd Passion for Pattern Blog Hop. It’s the easiest way to take a trip around the and meet designers from all over!! A big “THANK YOU” to Claire Smillie for organizing! If you are joining in the middle you can start at the beginning at Claire’s blog here: http://clairesmillie.wordpress.com/
Hopefully, you are coming to me from the lovely Liz Smith of Elle Jane Designs. http://www.ellejanedesigns.blogspot.co.uk/
My name is Tanya Brown & I design under the name “Schatzi Brown”. I live on Long Island by the ocean with my husband, Chris. By day I am an elementary school art teach, by night a pattern & graphic designer. I love to travel, I love the ocean, the beach, and being outdoors. I love working with watercolors and hand drawn motif’s. I love bright colors and that beachy bohemian vibe!!
I have been working hard all summer on some new designs, many of which are making their way onto my Society6 Shop. Below is some of my newer works.
I also worked hard uploading a lot of my designs and made them available on lots of different products on Zazzle. I love Zazzle because they have many different quality products, my favorites include the skateboard decks & doodle speakers! They also offer a few nice textile items like napkins, tea towels, and pillows produced by a company called American MoJo. American MoJo supports single mom’s and helps them get them into the work force! So buying a pretty pillow or towel helps to support two women at once!! Below are my “moonrise” patterns in Decks and some macbook sleeves produced by Rickshaw. I ordered an ipad sleeve in one of my patterns, produced by Rickshaw, and I was very happy with the color & quality. All available at Zazzle!
I just got my Envelop store up & running where I posted my “Jungle Fever” pattern to all of the products. Many more patterns to come!!!
My future plans include lots more designs coming down the line. A lot more florals, tropicals, and ethnically influenced patterns! I am also starting to work on some hand drawn typography, mystical creature illustrations! I also plan to expand my ESTY shop with graphic design services like shop banners & buttons. Please check back at my blog for pattern inspiration, color palettes, artist stories, and more. So stay tuned for sure!!!
