Pattern Making

You'll have to excuse the lighting. Sunshine is pretty scarce in the Pacific Northwest this time of year.
We've been driving with our headlights on at noon lately.

Thankfully I enjoy the gloomy dampness immensely. This is home :)

Here are some of the patterns I've been working on for #28Patterns.

80's Leaf: Inspired by the work of Sarah Bagshaw

This one is based on an Ikea fabric print:

This one is inspired by Mysterious Tropical Garden by SmallDrawing

Here it is just painted with Inktense blocks and a water brush.

Then I caved and added an outline to everything. I like the flowers MUCH better but the pomegranates less... what do you think? Do you prefer the details or the softer look and feel of the top picture?

And here's the index page in my bullet journal. I love how it's taking shape.

I prefer the second version Nicole with greater definition!
I'm looking forward to seeing more of your bullet journal

Penny said...

I prefer the greater definition, too! You are so good with patterns, obviously! Love each of these! Will be fun to see them all...
Don't know how you do it, with the rain, etc. I need my sunshine, or I get grumpier than normal, lol! :^)
Have a great weekend!
Hugs, Penny

These are juiceliscious Nicole! Want to like the soft one which I do but prefer the outlined one. All good though! X
