Cherry Blossom

Cherry Blossom  - student project

Roll on the spring.... Although I do love the changing colours of Autumn, I don't like it when the clocks go back. The day seems so short. With this in mind I created a repeat pattern inspired by Cherry Blossom trees.

I usually create repeats in Illustrator, but wanted to add more of a handmade feel to my patterns. Painting the motifs using Photoshop brushes is much more fun. I now love creating patterns in Photoshop too. In fact I often start by drawing out my patten concept in Illustrator then recreate it in Photoshop.

Great class, thanks for the insight.
