colour of the day: terracotta

Brand new A3 sized Mini Moka silkscreen printed with white ink on terracotta coloured Canson paper available to purchase HERE in the Mengsel Shop. I've only printed 10 in this very specific colour, so if you want one... be quick!

Terracotta is such a rich, warm and lovely colour and makes me think of the Mediterranean. Here's a little mood board I put together...

  1. Hello Luzelle,

    I came across your blog through Kerry's (Seventy Tree). I LOVE your work, your illustrations are so charming! I love the colors you use and the graphic touch.

    Having a baby boy named Swann, of course I fell in love with your swan pattern :)

    You're welcome to visit me here:

    Have a wonderful day!

  2. Hi Annabelle,

    Thank you for your very kind comments. Swann is a very beautiful name. Will definitely check out your blog.

  3. I love the contrast between the white print and dark terracotta paper. Seriously, it looks great!
