“It was a lot of fun work­ing on the pa­pers for the ad­vent cal­en­dar free gift this is­sue. I love bold shapes and colours and used this as a start­ing point for my de­signs.

I be­gan by cut­ting out shapes from coloured pa­per and played around, ar­rang­ing them in di er­ent ways, then con­trasted th­ese de­signs with sim­pler, more struc­tured pat­terns that I knew would work for the rooftops. Jewel tones in the colour pal­ette work per­fectly, giv­ing the pa­pers a mod­ern, play­ful feel. I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to as­sem­bling all the lit­tle houses in the fi­nal cal­en­dar!”

Amy is an il­lus­tra­tor and pat­tern de­signer from New Zealand, cur­rently liv­ing in Bris­tol, UK. She loves work­ing with colour, tex­ture and re­peats, and has de­signed fab­rics, sta­tionery, book cov­ers and more. www.amy­van­
