Fishy Hugs and Kisses

Love all the great projects submitted! I am finally putting something up. I just haven't wanted to stop long enough since this journey started!

This class was the first pattern class I took and in a few short months I have totally immersed myself in surface pattern design, trying to learn as much as I can. I LOVE learning and watching videos but better still is implementing the learning. The blog brush was a breakthrough moment for me – love that brush! I found the repeat pattern teaching in this video easy to follow – thanks Elizabeth!

Until then I had been working in Photoshop, Illustrator was a bit of a mystery to me. I have learned so much through great resources like this and hungry for more!


This is one of three fish designs I have been working on. One has hugs and kisses on it and why I named the collection, Fishy Hugs & Kisses. I wanted to challenge myself to mix the pen tool objects with the contrasting soft blob brush shapes and lines. I am pretty happy with the result.


Mock ups are also new to me. I had to test this design out on a lamp shade for a littlies room. Below are the 3 designs I ended up with. The only issue I have now is....I want these on lampshades for real!



Thank again for starting me off Elizabeth and planting one of the first seeds of pattern inspiration. I wish you every success in all your projects x
