These Mexican Birds are inspired by Annie’s love of traditional Otomi embroidery and design from Mexico. Otomi folk artwork centres on themes of native flora and fauna, hence the birds and tropical flowers used here. Traditionally, the Otomi people use bright clashing multicolours to bring joy and colour to their homes, which we think works wonderfully with this design. Alternatively, use tonal shades for a more subtle statement.
Here we see an example of the stencil used with Old White and Provence.
