Marble on my mind

Marble is very popular right now and you can find it on fashion, home wares and everything in between. So I decided to design a card based on this trend and this is what I came up with:

Marble Inspired Card by Claudia Owen for Greenvelope

You can find this card at Greenvelope and on my website. Marble On My Mind - Mood Board by Pattern Curator - Card Design for Greenvelope - Featured in Claudia Owen Blog

I used this gorgeous mood board by Pattern Curator for inspiration.

Marble trend

One of the trends I’m loving right now is marbling. There are many ways that you can introduce this trend into your designs and I’ve been having lots of fun creating a number of designs inspired by this trend.

Just look at these gorgeous marbled papers by Mulberry Papers available from Blick.


I really enjoy looking at trends and I find that is particularly useful when I’m designing greeting cards. It really helps me get started. If you need some inspiration today, I hope these will help you!

Here are two publications that I enjoyed on Issuu:

Wall Covering Trends 2015/16


Trends to Watch in 2014. This one might seem old but I find these trends are still quite popular now (at least here in Australia).

Tree of life

I’ve previously done some designs with this type of trend before and I think it’s time to do some designs based on this look again. Let’s see what I can do!

Kreo Home

Once again, I’m a little late with this news but now Kreo Home stocks four of my cushions on their website. If you love quirky and somewhat unusual home wares then you’ll love Kreo Home. They stock home wares with an edge showcasing talented Australian and international designers.

Here you can see the 4 cushion covers I have with Kreo Home:
