1940s print inspiration

I have been looking at some original floral printed fabrics from the 1940s which are sold by Donna Flower to help me design my screen print using my great grandmothers embroidery transfers.

I think that this type of layout would work well for my design as the flowers look like they are growing in one direction, rather than just scattered about.

I like the use of wildflowers and wheat in this design.

Although in this design the flowers look quite stylised which is not what I am trying to achieve, I like the use of the grid as a background, as grids and nets were something that featured heavily on my allotments.

I like the use of outline in this print.
