Pattern Design Workshop: Create 3 Focal Point Prints in 3 Weeks April 12-May 3rd

Hi I'm Christina from Los Gatos California. For the past 11 years I have been working as a stylist for a designer clothing company out of LA. I recently resigned from my business to pursue my passion and background in graphic design. My goal is to imerse myself in pattern design and create until I find my unique style. I am always trying something new, and learning along the way. This is my second time taking Bonnie's Focal Point workshop. I am looking for any kind of feedback good or bad, so please let me know what you think of my work.

Welcome to Phase 5 - Pattern and coordinates

This time of year, I always have the desire to go to Paris. I have never been, but dream of visiting soon.

2. Weedz

There really is a lot of beauty in weeds. If you stop to take a look, you will find unique shapes, beautiful flowers, and an abundace of variety. Weeds get a bad rap, something to be pulled and tossed away. I beleive there is a natural beauty that can and should be appreciated.

Weedz, color pallate and pattern re worked. Would love to know which color way you like best!

I found vintage wallpaper hidden in the walls of our home during a 2014 remodel. Ever since than I have been obsessed with vintage wallpaper. I am hoping to create a pattern using modern shapes and colors with a vintage flair.

Phase 5 -- 

Collections and Mock ups

1. California Casual--For this collection I wanted to create something simple and fun. I was inspired by the cool hip casual vibe of a VW bus (my dream car). I would love to see this collection printed on fabric. I like the combination of the vw bus print back to the groovy flowers with polka dot pattern as well. I see this all mixing we together. I would love an apron or fun summer dress made with these patterns.

2. Showers & Flowers -- For my showers and flowers collection I wanted to combine rain with fun flowers to represent the fun and beauty of rain. A more happy approach to a dull rainy day. I love how the supporting patterns came to life. I can see these prints being used in wrapping paper, notebooks and stationary. I chose a bold and large color pallate to add to the happiness and playfulness of this rainy day.

3. Dream Garden--The idea of dream garden came from the fact that I love to draw flowers from my imagination. The colors and shapes may not be realistic in nature, but they are in my thoughts and dreams. When these motifs and colors came together I immediately thought of fabric for clothing. The colors are classic yet trendy when you mix navy, with Mint and bright orange. I would choose lighweight almost transparent fabric and definatley mix patterns together for a fun outfit.
