I’m always amazed by the quality and beauty of the work that Longina Phillips Designs produces. Just look at these gorgeous floral designs!

Today I wanted to thank the talented Jiawa Liu from Closet Voyage who took these beautiful images of my scarves.

She did a wonderful job styling the scarves and what I like about it the most is that given that we are in the middle of a hot summer here in Australia the scarves have been beautifully styled for this hot weather. It really shows you how versatile a scarf can be – they are not only good for winter to help you keep warm but in summer they can be a gorgeous accessory.

I now have all these scarves in my Etsy shop.

I’ve finally taken the plunge and open an Etsy shop. I’ve been thinking and dreaming about it for a long time and I’ve finally done it! Yay! So the first item that I’m listing is one of my favourite designs of all time – the beautiful Gemstone Silk Scarf.

I designed this scarf using hand drawn sketches to create the patterns and textures and I later coloured and edited it digitally. This design is bright and it reflects my love of patterns, colours and textures. It was a real joy to design this scarf and I hope you experience the same joy when you wear it.

The silk is beautifully soft and gentle to the touch. It’s also nice and thick without being too heavy or too thin – just the perfect thickness. The colours are vibrant and full of life.

All dyes used in the making of this scarf are GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) approved and eco friendly. The scarf measures 17.7×68.9 Inches or 45×175 Centimetres.

The shop at the moment is looking rather empty but I will slowly add new items as they are ready to be uploaded. Right now I’m busy taking pictures and editing them, writing product descriptions and writing all my shop policies. This whole process takes a long time but I’m happy that I’m finally doing it!

I’m also listing my items in Spanish which is another reason why the listing process is taking me longer. I actually haven’t written in Spanish in years so if your Spanish is better than mine feel free to suggest some text edits! Here you can see my listing in Spanish.

I love the fact that Etsy lets you have your items listed in different languages I just wish it magically translated everything for you! So if you are an English speaker the listing will appear in English but if you speak Spanish the listing will show in Spanish for you.

Take a look at my brand new Etsy shop and let me know what you think!

Here are some images from Cultivate Art Collective and Cultivate Art Agency stand at Printsource.

I think it looks good! And I’m so happy to see everyone’s work on display. We’ve all been working hard for months to get to this point.

If you are going to Printsource make sure to visit Stand A17. My work will be represented by Cultivate Art Agency.

Tomorrow is the big day and I can’t wait! I wish everyone has a very successful show and I hope it brings lots of new opportunities. Best of luck everyone!

It’s strange when you find yourself looking at print trends online and you actually find your work featured! It’s so cool and a great surprise! Here’s the Pattern People blog post:

I think it’s a nice improvement from what I previously had and I’m happy with it :)

If you are going to Printsource make sure to visit Stand A17. My work will be represented by Cultivate Art Agency and I will have over 100 prints.

I’m hoping all these portfolios are completely empty by the end of the show :)

Fingers crossed it’s a successful show for all!

Yes, you read it correctly. I’m going to Printsource! This is the first time that I will have my work at Printsource and I’m super excited about that!

Printsource is the premier market for surface and textile design in the USA and it is the main resource for surface and textile design for America’s major manufacturers and retailers. The show covers many industries including men’s, children’s and women’s apparel, bed and bath, kitchen and tabletop, paper goods and stationery, wall coverings, window fashions as well as other surface and textile design applications.

The show will be January 13 and 14, 2015 at the Metropolitan Pavilion 125 West 18th Street, NYC

This is my Printsource flyer:

If you are going to Printsource make sure to visit Stand A17. My work will be represented by Cultivate Art Agency and I will have over 100 prints at the show.

I’m still hoping I can add a few more prints but … I have lots of other work to do so I need to be realistic about what I can achieve between now and the show.

I’m feeling optimistic and I’m hoping I will have a successful first show. Let’s do this!

I’m a little late sharing this news but you can now find my designs on the Japanese website Hurunia. I have 6 cushion designs and 16 phone cases.

Here you can see all my phone cases and here you can see all my cushions.

When I look at prints sometimes I wonder why would I ever wear plain looking clothes ever again??

These beautiful images below are from the Patternbank Spring Summer 2016 Print trend report.

As you can see, it’s going to be very bright! Exciting times ahead :)

I have 3 holiday designs at May 28th. The watches are not too Christmassy that way you can continue to wear your brand new watch for the rest of the year :) I hope you like them!

Here are some gorgeous animal prints. Bright, contrasting colours and a very interesting combination of animal and floral prints. I don’t think I have ever worn animal prints, but after seeing these… I might have to reconsider…

I’m a little late with the news but I was designer of the month in August over at May28th. They also did a short interview about me and my work which is available on the May28th blog. You can read the interview here.

Thank you May28th for being so kind and promoting my work on your website. I’m super excited!

Here’s something I completely forgot to share earlier. I was interviewed by Julie Gibbons the very talented lady behind Tractor Girl. You can read the whole interview here.

Thank you Julie for taking the time to feature me and my work on your blog. I’m so glad that you found me somewhere on the interwebs and decided to contact me. It’s great to know that people are actually looking at your website and that Google analytics is not just made up numbers!

I have been quite neglectful of my blog lately (it might have something to do with my 11 month old baby…) So my posts are rather sporadic and seem to come in bunches and then quickly disappear for weeks on end. That’s my life as a mum now!

Today more pattern inspiration from nature. Look at all these beautiful leaves!

Today I’ve been collecting some images of patterns in nature as inspiration and this is what I found:
