My second inspiration was based off New Year's fireworks and the blessings that we hope to continue onto the new year.

I loved this challenge! Getting to design all of my favorite things was therapuetic. Taking this class has helped my skills jump even more and given me more options on how to play with my drawings in Illustrator. Thank you Bonnie Christine! 

My love for bold, simple, detailed, organized chaos, vintage designs led me to create "Cariad", meaning "Love". It is a welsh word for love and this pattern represents all the things I love; calla lilies, french macaroons, lavender, anemone, magnolias, sunflowers, polka dots, funky flowers and my Shiba Inu Momoko a.k.a Momo!


The quote I chose is from Coco Chanel one of my favorite designers. She was a woman who paved her own way, in life and did it in style. When I heard "there's room for you" I instantly thought of her. There are many quotes from her that I love, but this one is close to my heart.

And these two swatches below are just some different colorways I could not help but share. Above is my entry.

I couldn't help but make a vintage desktop version just for myself when I want to switch it up.
