I absolutely adored this class. This is my first time experimenting with Illustrator, digital drawing, and pattern making. I got frustrated with myself many times, but Bonnie is so encouraging. I was able to keep coming back and trying again and again. I finally got to a place that I feel really good about. And I'm looking forward to creating more.
Thank you so much, Bonnie, for being generous with your knowledge and for your encouragement. This class is one I will come back to many times.
I'm sharing the first pattern in two different colors and the bouquet pattern in the first color. I somehow deleted all my swatches while I was making the second pattern and couldn't figure out how to get them back. I'll figure it out eventually and might upload the second one in another color.
I didn't do much of a mood board. I took pictures with my iphone and then sketched and pulled colors directly from my pics. The mood boards in the class projects are very inspiring so I hope to play with that more as I progress.
I was so tempted to rest a little butterfly in the second pattern. :) I will have to add one at some point. This is so much fun!
