Plaids and Stripes

Plaids and stripes have always been an important part of my personal design aesthetic, especially when I mix patterns in the same outfit.
I carried my quirky colour scheme into my wedding outfits, too, including designing the invitations, and the fabric for my reception blouse.
​​Stripes came into my fabric designs when my clever husband suggested that I use barcode font to spell ‘Drayer Steampunk Wedding’, which I used to create the stripe that was used as the background for our ‘thank you’ artwork after the event. 
After the concept of the barcode stripe took hold, I used it to design a whole series of stripes, including my signature retro stripe which now decorates my fancy gazebo
​I wanted a plaid background for my designs – so I made one, in order to avoid accidentally using an actual tartan.
