I used photos that I took of scarves, objects around my house, flowers from recent trips to the garden center. It's really limitless as to where you can find inspiration for patterns. Flowers just might be my favorite.
|Flower and leaf motifs.|
|Mosaics and Patchwork |
(I did a cool pattern based on some of these motifs, I'll post that a bit later)
I still have yet to fully develop some of these patterns. I actually drew all of this stuff in a few days. I was on fire!! Haha!
Over the years, I've had trouble thinking and coming up with new creative ideas. And looking back, I've found that I was sitting in front of my computer with my Wacom tablet trying to kick off the creative process digitally. I now know this doesn't work for ME, maybe for others, but not for me. And I am very fortunate to have learned this lesson about myself, the sooner the better!
