Wednesday Wicked Design

screen printed shoulder bag

This weeks Wednesday Wicked Design features fellow Bris-Style designer Helen of Paluma Print. From her studio in Redcliffe, Helen produces hand screen printed designs inspired by Australian Flora and Fauna. Each design is screen printed onto fabric and turned into beautiful handbags, purses, tea towels, place mats and aprons.

Some of my favourites from her etsy store are ...

screen printed linen place mats

screen printed cafe apron

screen printed linen place mats

screen printed purse

Each of her designs are accompanied by a description of the plant or animal that inspired the design which I think is such a lovely touch. And the name ... Helen says that Paluma is the name of a small village set in the tropical rainforest near Townsville, north Queensland, which is where she began screen-printing in the Eighties.

Helen also has a blog where she records the progress of her business, and her life of craft and creativity. It shows her latest creations and is a wonderful read.

Hope you are having a fantastic week.
