End of Module 3 - Surface Pattern E-Course

Well, Thats it, The end of ANOTHER era. 

Last week I finished Module 3 of 'The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design'. The mastermind's behind the course being the amazing Rachael Taylor, and the fabulous Beth Nicholls. 

I would like to thank them, not only for their time, wise words and inspiration, but for opening up the floodgates to an industry that I've tried so hard to fight my way in to. When I begin Module one, way back in the early spring, I was hoping to gain a little more technical knowledge, maybe some hints and tips on freelancing and setting up self employed. 

I got that.

And so so so so much more, Its just too much to put in to words. I don't know if I can ever thank them enough for creating an online course, tailored so specific to the industry that I want to be a part of  am now a part of. 

Being a Stay at home mum isn't easy. 

Being a Surface Pattern Designer isn't easy.

Thanks to Rachael and Beth.... I am now Both.... and its not easy.  

But I'm happy.

Last but not least, I'd like to thank Beth and Rachael for introducing me to a group of amazingly inspiring, encouraging and like-minded ladies. I couldn't have gotten through all 3 modules without you girls. I'm so happy to be a part of a very special community. 

Thank you.

Today I would like to share my 4 entries in to a live brief for an online wallpaper company called
