These are two paintings I created in oil on canvas, without an initial plan or subject to look at. I encourage my students to also just create from their hearts. Both of these paintings were also used to create fabric designs. Some of the repeat patterns, pulling colors from the paintings are below:
How do we get to products with all these fun designs?
Putting it together:
Would you like to learn how to design and publish your own Patterns from your paintings, photos or drawings? I am here to help.
Painting by Leslie - Design by Erica. Collaboration is really fun.
It is challenging to learn new skills and rewarding too.
Leslie Painted the two dog's in Acrylic on Canvas. We scanned the art into Photoshop and made repeat patterns in layers as shown below. The finished piece was sent to Spoonflower for printing on silk to make a scarf.
Now that we are learning to create and collect images let's put those into a book. An on-line service I recommend for a wide variety of formats is BLURB. Full disclosure, I do earn an affiliate commission from Blurb if you sign up. But it is one of my favorites. If you are a Mac user you can also make photo books directly from iPhoto without signing up.
