Here is a new piece I made with glued paper scraps and line drawings cut and pasted in Photoshop. Lots of fun making this one!
I'm so excited about this new print I'm working on! I made this from a watercolor painting using Higgins dye inks, then digitally altered it in Photoshop.
I'm compiling doodles and sketches to see if they have pattern potential. I think these could turn into something cool. What do you think? I'm using SketchbookPro for a lot of my sketching along with my Wacom Intuos 4 tablet. I highly recommend SketchbookPro! I've found it to be an absolute gem of a software. Easy to use and an all over great drawing program. Love, love, love it!
If I'm working on one project, I'm usually working on two others at the same time. It's just more fun that way! Sooo as I was preparing artwork for my jewelry collection (more on that soon), I found this little gem that I painted a while ago when I was living in Albuquerque. I wanted to experiment with this painting, and see how it would look as a repeat. I really like the textured painterly feel and the movement it has. I would like to do more paintings in this style for pattern collections. I think this would make a great scarf. What do you think?
Here's a pattern I made out of a dachshund silhouette and scanned paper cut outs. Fun!
Recently I've started working on my pattern collections over at the Pattern Observer and I could not be more excited!! I will be posting my pattern progress weekly and experimenting with new designs for repeat. I'm an official graduate of The Ultimate Guide to Repeats course. I learned so much. It was jam packed with info on the textile business and very inspiring. Thanks Michelle for sharing your expertise! Here's a pattern based on a sea life motif that I made for this class:
