Hi everyone, 

This is my first Skillshare-project. Fairly new to surface pattern design I thought I´d challenge myself and move away from my ususal abstract shapes and instead draw flowers. I started out drawing flowers with very geometrical shapes and filled them with my usual dots and lines. 

At first I planned for the background color to be a light pastel color but when placing a clipping mask box in a dark color I realized that the darker color looked really nice with the rest of the palette. 

The final pattern. 

As a repeat.

And as a iphone cover.

I learned that I absolutely LOVE drawing flowers, greens and organic shapes so this is definitelysomething to explore!

I ended up making two coordinating patterns to match the hero pattern.
