Building a collection of giftwrap designs

I've been getting stuck into experimenting with new designs for placement print gift wrap inspired by the brief given on the surface pattern course a couple of days ago. Here are sections of the designs I've done so far; there will be a set of six eventually :

I looked back at the sketches I did very early on in the course and re drew elements of many of those sketches.



Wonder if I can squeeze in some design time over the weekend?  

I have promised I won't work tomorrow so may be a few hours on Sunday ;) 
It's so addictive.

  5. I really like your plate, and your new designs; particularly the top ones - reminiscent of paisley pear in a way. It sounds like a brlliant course.
