Inspired by Jazmine’s Scribble It wall, I decided I would like to create a customisable wallpaper. At first I was hoping to do a wipeable product, but this seemed to be difficult with my budget, time limit, and desire to not use harmful chemicals to create the product.
I originally tried to hand-draw designs but i found it difficult, especially with creating pattern repeats, so I instead created several different digital patterns. I decided to create plain black and white patterns, similar to a colouring-in book which could be coloured in or left plain and would still look beautiful and elegant.
I researched other environmentally friendly products and decided I would like to ideally print on organic cotton, this means they could be left unstarched and used for cushions and other items, but will provide for a lovely texture as a wallpaper. I researched pesticide free wallpaper pastes and found a home-made recipe for wallpaper paste as well as how to create natural dyes (using herbs, plants, vegetables etc.) for a completely safe and eco- conscious design.
