It's been 3 days since the snow came to Devon, the first snow in 5 whole years and our first ever 'Red' weather warning. Everything really came to a standstill, the UK isn't equipped to deal with these weather conditions. All the local schools closed, much to the children's delight and we now have igloos and snowmen scattered around the garden. In the meantime, I have taken the opportunity to stay warm and concentrate on learning about seamless repeat patterns in photoshop. I've taken some of the icons from my vase of flowers to make this repeat pattern to be used as wrapping paper with my Mothers Day card for Folio Focus. It's taken forever to learn, but I have finally achieved what a year ago, seemed like the impossible!
I love tea, I love blue and white and I have a new found love for paisley. So I thought to myself, why not paint my new paisley design onto a tea cup... and so I did!
My adventure in simple patterns with CreativeBug has been continuing in the background of other work. It's so therapeutic and is a great way to try some different colour combinations and become acquainted with my beautiful set of Turner Acryl Gouache. At some point I'd like to come back to the paisley and paint it in several colour ways. But for now the month ahead is very full with various other arty projects.
