:: :: all over :: ::

ladies and gentlemen i give you:

my first repeating pattern design.

i haven't had the chance to color it yet, which i plan to do, and i don't totally love the larger parts of the print. i think i'll go back and edit those. but still. i'm pretty psyched to have learned how to create a seamless pattern repeat.

and i'm wondering: if i post a tutorial, would you want to learn how to do this? and would you be willing to share your work with everyone? i mean, you could send it to me and i could post it and so it could totally be anonymous. but i'd love to get some creative flow going.

alternately, i'm thinking of a group word game. maybe a monthly thing where someone chooses one word of inspiration and the group has to come up with SOME kind of project (art, food, photography, craft, poem, etc.) that was inspired by the word.

thoughts? interest?

I absolutely love patterns - please do post a tutorial...I was thinking about tessellations then got confused as my head hurt and gave up, haha!

Great ideas - go for it!

I like your word game idea a lot! Count me in. And I think a tutorial is a good idea too!

This is great - I would love to see this pattern as a lining on a cool jacket. Awesome!
