Hello & welcome to the Inspiration Emporium!Rebecca Johnstone

I call myself ‘Dainty Dora’ but I’m not dainty and my name’s not Dora. I’m a puzzle, I know, but I’m also a multi-passionate creative coming at you with posts and pics showcasing:

Surface pattern design, drawing and sketching, art journaling, mixed media collage, colourful photography, textiles + more

I have a First Class honours degree in Textiles & Fashion Design Management, specialising in Print, from Heriot-Watt University in Galashiels (formerly The Scottish College of Textiles).

I loved and still love the creative process of working to a theme, designing mood-boards and creating storyboards. Of having a vision and bringing it to life through the medium of textiles, patterns, words, colour, and art. Much of my drawing and collage work informs my pattern designs, completing the circle of creativity.

Thanks so much for reading.

With inspiration and joy,

Dainty Dora x
