new patterns – crosses

you know when you work on something for ages, go away from it, then come back and realise it’s rubbish? that’s what happened with the painted bits here i’d intended to make a pattern with. it looked good on paper, but when i scanned it in it just ..didn’t look good. i tried to carry on regardless, but ..nope, the resulting pattern just looked sub par.

after leaving it for a couple weeks i came back to it with fresh eyes. i tidied up the shapes, made the colours different and less saturated, and …voila, these patterns happened! not that they’re particularly amazing or anything, but i still like them. a variation of one of these may be made into the print for one of my a5 notebooks, but i’ve still not decided. i really like the lilac, pink and yellow combination though, and will definitely be using it for something in the future.

    I really like the pink the and yellow pattern! I feel that way with blogging…I rarely sit down and write a full post in one sitting. I like to start it and then return later with fresh ideas and energy! x

    My favourite is the third one. It's great to look at things again with fresh eyes. :-) x
