the pitter patter of pattern january

more fun sketchbook goodness, YAY! ♥

day 6: fair
i was thinking of a fun fair, so i went crazy with colorburst bunting. like ya do...

day 7: coral reef
this was a stumper because i decided i had to combine pattern january with mandala monday, which turned out to be harder than i thought. this doesn't entirely work (either as a mandala or a pattern, lol!) ...but... i definitely learned a lot AND got to use wisteria, cornflower and orchid colorburst!

day 8: kitchen
in a very verrrrrrrry tangential take, i painted some beuatiful arabesque tile i saw recently at home depot, that i would love to be our backsplash when we (eventually) re-do our kitchen. 
(technically, the tile i saw was neutral beige-on-beige, but that's not especially fun to paint, kwim?!)

day 9: starts with w
my "default mode" for pattern january is to go with very literal brush lettering whenever i can't decide what to do. this was one of those times. i cannot say i like this as a finished piece, but i had a lot of fun trying to make as many W color names as i could think of into visual patterns. i predict you might see some of my letter styles again, in something a little more finished looking.
(note: i've spelled "wedgwood" two different ways... BOTH are wrong...)

  2. Fantastic! That bunting is especially wonderful. (Pssst, I'm not a fan of Wedgwood anyway. (: )
