Herb pattern

After finishing my MATS A bolt fabric assignment I practiced a little with the BONUS ‘repeat pattern’ taught by Rachel Taylor. I used my herb material from the pasta dishes and moved them around in Illustrator.

This is what I came up with, and it was so much fun making it!
The next step is to learn how to make patterns more interesting and learn more about all the different kind of repeats. Because watching videos, making notes, and practicing one little repeaty-thing isn’t gonna make me a pattern queen. YET! – You noticed that last word?? ;)

But nevertheless I just wanted to share it with you, because I’m secretly a bit proud of the result, since it’s my first fancy looking repeat pattern……Well….not secretly of course, because it’s already all over the internet…..

I’d like to share my creation/submission for the Make Art That Sells A course, by Lilla Rogers. With a variety of painted pasta, herbs and simple pyrex inspired bowls I illustrated three possible tea towels with the given theme ‘Macaroni and Pyrex®’ for the bolt fabric market.
