Following from Thursdays post when I showed my repeat pattern I had drawn by hand, since then I have created several designs with co-ordinates. I'm not so sure about the main design as I feel it's not very strong. But from the previous similar repeat to this I have taken the colour red away from the colour palette, which I feel it has help tremendously.What do you think?


I went on a walk around my village yesterday taking photographs of patterns and inspiration I found relevant. Here are a few:

I started The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design e-course featuring Rachael Taylor on 30th Jan and I'm lovin' every minute of it. I'm a bit behind, but I know I'll soon catch up. Below is what I did for the first task. I had to create this pattern without using my mac which I found quite difficult. But I did really enjoy doing this and I was determined to finish it. I used fine liner to draw out the outline of my pattern and then added colour with acrylic paints which I found very time consuming. Although I'm unsure on the colour palette I have used. What do you think?

Since starting this e-course, I have seen patterns everywhere!
