I have created this floral quirky pattern with summer in mind, hence, I've went for a bright, cheerful color palette. But I didn't come to this color combination straight from the beginning. Using the recolor artwork tool that Illustrator has to offer, I have tried different color combinations, experimented with unexpected colors and had fun with shades!
