my work

new pattern: ysabel

when i was doing some marbling last week i also did some drawing and painting, and some general doodle-scribbles. i got out my oil pastels and made some random shapes/did a bit of mark-making, and one of the pieces was just lines across the paper in the colours i had out at the time.

i had originally intended to do a pattern that was vertical lines but i couldn’t get it to repeat properly – hello wonky varying thickness lines! – so i thought about how i could make something else of it. well, i love (read: am obsessed with) polka dots so i thought it’d be nice to combine stripes and circles.

as always, i did about a million different colour variations for the background, but these were the three i liked best, the cornflower/lavender, the rosy pink and the pastel yellow. all of these are available on my society6 store as prints, phone cases and more, too.

i actually think this pattern would look lovely on fabric. perfect for a lovely spring dress, or a picnic blanket, don’t you think? the colours kind of make me think of the seaside too for some reason. saying that, i think they’d work well with gift wrap or stationery too, so i did a mockup above of the patterns on some notepads.
