What does Monday, a teepee and a river have in common?

Hi all! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. In our household, Spring arrives early with the onset of little league baseball. So from now until the end of May, our weekends are pretty much baseball oriented. Sitting on hard metal bleachers isn’t so bad when the sun is shining and the temperature is reaching towards the high 70’s. No complaints here!

So what does that picture of a carved teepee have to do with baseball you might be wondering? Absolutely nothing but I’m super excited about it! So much so that I couldn’t wait til “what’s new Wednesday” to show you.

I’ve been slightly obsessed with images of teepees, feathers and stones. So it only seemed inevitable that some of these images would show up somewhere in my products. So in between working on a few wholesale orders I’ve been carving, designing and block-printing.

I always begin with sketches before I carve. Once I have the image carved and ready to print, the next step for me is figuring on what medium I’d like to print the image on. For example, some images look great on napkins but not so great on a tea towel or notebook. It really is a lot of trial and error and testing in the beginning stages.It really is these first designing and playing stages that I absolutely adore! After a few tests prints, I was really happy with the way the tea towels turned out!

So without further ado…I’d like to introduce you to the latest addition to the indobay family, {teepees & rivers}. I imagine dreaming big dreams in a teepee by a gentle, lazy river…

I’d love, love your feedback if you have a few minutes. Feel free to let me know what you think in the comments below. What do you think about the grey and citrus green together? Do you have another color combination that you think might suit this design as well? Thanks in advance! :)
