Blimey, it's all go. Having decided to commit myself to 31 days of creating patterns, I find myself currently and frantically bashing away at the computer all day. Between this and my work (all computer based) I'm going square-eyed.
Never mind. Today I took a photo of an old and frankly hideous chair which sits in our bathroom. It has "sentimental" value for Nick, so it stays. Normally, I rest my radio on it when I take a bath, so it does have it's uses. It also has a rather lovely pattern on the seating area.
Which I used to create...
which was frankly harder than I at first imagined. There may be a quick and elegant way to create this criss cross pattern but that's not the route I went. Nope, I went the long and cumbersome way round.
I then added some pink and brown to the mix
and printed out to make a card
If I had more time, I'd choose lighter colours. Oh and perhaps a hundred other niggling problems with it. One of the extra skills I'm learning on the second day is that I've only got time to go with my first ideas, possibly my second. I don't have the luxury of tweaking it until it's perfect. Yup, I'm going to have to face up to my perfectionist demon again. My particular favoured method of procrastinating on creative projects. We all have them and that's mine.
If you've stuck with me so far, thank you for popping by. Hopefully see you tomorrow. With what, I haven't a clue just yet :)
