the coat of arms series

I've taking a liking to the coat of arms as of late. I actually did a Google image seach to see if my family had one- we did apparently, but it is not as pretty as I had hoped. I think that you have to be one of those people who appear in the society pages of Tatler magazine to have one of those! So I'm now playing around with motif- maybe I'm well overdue for a move on from my favourite clouds now. This is a first little attempt at a print repeat- so its very, very simple. Not overly sure about the colours, and I think that there could be some more variation in the shapes. What do you think? I'm going to be working with this motifs in a few guises from now on, which is quite exciting!
