Inspired Patterns - Day Twenty Six

It's a splotchier, messier day today. Up until now, all the patterns have been created completely on computer. Ahh, lovely, clean computer. However, today has been a bit more hands on, messy and inky.

Here's the photo which inspired me today...



I could have gone with any design on these rather magnificent pumpkins. But it was the animal print which caught my eye. So I took out some white sheets of paper, some black ink and created some splatty shapes. I scanned them into the computer and came up with this...


Which became this...


And best of all. I walked away without a single black stain on my hands.

Thanks as always, for dropping by. Hope you liked today's pattern. I'll be back again tomorrow with yet another design.

Super! I love the splattery look - more painty than animal for me, which just suits me :). You are creating a splendid range here.

I LOVE this one. I have been enjoying your designs so much.

This, pattern, too, takes me eye, and I love it. As an art journaler, I have come to embrace splats--those which appear when I use my "splat" stamp and those that appears when I am careless! I also appreciate this one because it is a more random pattern! WooHoo, Paul!
