An Ocean of Dragons

A pair of serpents or Celtic dragons twist in the centre of this design, ringed with a heart knot border, Celtic maze patterns, and loads of Celtic knots. To me the dragons here remind me of old myths where the guardians of the world rest beneath the waves, ready to rise once again when the world needs them again.

Celtic Seahawks

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!

Thistle Cross

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.
