Today I am focusing on pattern design. Several of the classes/tutorials that I have done recently (for both pattern design and lettering) suggest creating a mood board to help focus your mind in the direction you want to go. I think this is an important step that I’ve been skipping. Pinning on Pinterest and creating in my mind aren’t nearly as helpful as actually getting something out on paper/screen. Today I’m sharing a mood board for a design I’m working on.
My “methodical” mind tends to be drawn to creating geometric patterns but I love doing random patterns once I get started. So for this pattern, I’m envisioning a simple two color random floral pattern. This mood board is just the beginning; it’s very possible this particular pattern will morph into something else. You never know where creating will take you. Hopefully I’ll have a completed pattern to share next week.
