I had a great order come in for a bespoke Gothic inspired silk scarf. My client decided to go for the grande size which is so versatile and can be worn as a scarf or shawl. I had previously painted a Gothic inspired scarf for her daughter so I decided to adapt the design a little so they had their own unique scarves. The colour palette was to be blacks,crimsons and I also added purple tones too. I love painting vintage cabbage roses and the crimson colour worked so well that it gave the flower the Gothic touch. After looking at rose tattoos for inspiration I cam across a beautiful swallow design and wanted to incorporate it within the deign. To make the scarf a personal piece and included my clients initials and finished off the edges by sewing vintage black lace. I love the piece myself and I have a happy client too. It was great to use darker colours and has really inspired me to do more in this colour range and look to traditional tattoos for more ideas.
