This project was so much fun! I am definitely hooked on pattern making now.

I originally did the cutting/taping/drawing to create my first tile:

I couldn't clean it up well enough in Photoshop to make a seamless repeating pattern, so I retraced the balloons in three separate groups and then live traced them in Illustrator.

Then I used the knife tool to cut and rearrange digitally just like I originally did with scissors and tape. My final tile isn't exactly the same as my original, but I'm just as happy with it.

Changing the colors is quick and easy in Illustrator, so I plan to try out a few different color palettes, but right now I love this color combo.

Thanks for checking out my project!
