What a week…..

I am in pattern heaven, last week was truly amazing, I know that this course was the right thing to do.

Check out website for info and inspiration http://www.makeitindesign.com

Now I know what to do with the years of scribbling,doodles and patterns in my sketchbooks. I feel invigorated and full of a new sense of purpose and the belief that little me can and will achieve my dream of becoming a Surface Pattern Designer.

My confidence is growing day by day, the course is set out so well and the support from the group is supportive there is room for all of us in the surface pattern world. The more we chat with each other the stronger the support gets, and finding out about each others stories is fab.

I was out about in the rain this week taking photos of rectangles, drawing chillies and looking at the world with new eyes and I¬†can’t¬†stop smiling.¬†here’s¬†some bits from my sketch book last week





This was such great fun as I normal work with organic shapes, so it was good to get out of my comfort zone and try something different. talking of something different I went inside the Royal Pavilion for the first time, only been living in Brighton 17 yrs.

P1020120I was so surprised it was decadent and over the top but so worth going, you can take photos,I was frantically sketching bits and pieces to create motifs later, will be going back so many pattens



And finally it was mothers day on Sunday and my mum has been so supportive of my journey and without her love and support I don’t think I would have got this far.

I always make¬†her mother’s day¬†card and this year I decided to be a bit more experimental, so I used one of my paintings as a background and some elements I had created on illustrator.


Have a great week, smile and be happy.

The possibilities are endless….

Getting excited if a little nervous as 9 days till the course begins, I am ready, feel like a sponge ready to soak up all they have to offer. ūüôā¬†For the last few days I have been on illustrator when ever I have a spare moment,its so much fun,I have been playing around and came up with this…blueflowers2Illustrator CS6 has a handy pattern maker and its so much easier than before¬†( recently upgraded before I was still working on CS2) thank goodness there are some brilliant people out there who produce amazing tutorials to help understand this complex program. I will have post links for a few of ones that have really helped me.
