There are so many bird designs featuring the sky, but so many birds flock to the shores and ocean! This pair of Book of Kells inspired birds sit framed amongst crashing waves and twisting spirals. I’ve added sweeping tails to the birds and lots of details in their feathers, to offer lots of coloring inspiration. I’d love to see this one done up in beautiful sea greens, gold, and blues!
I love how this Celtic cross turned out! The sharp thorny edges remind me of Scottish thistles, as the knotted portions set off the spiral arms of the cross. I wrapped a matching thorny knot border around the design to finish it off. Lots of detail in this one, perfect for trying out lots of color combinations.
Budding fantasy tulips with Celtic knot trellis decorate this lovely mandala design. Behind the blooms sits a wheel of spiral roses, offering great detail and color contrast for the tulips on top, while ivy leaves frame the design with green.
