Pattern Design Workshop: Create 3 Focal Point Prints

Hi everyone,

My name is Iliana and I’m from Sofia/Bulgaria.

Right now I’m at the start of “New beginnings” in my life. I want to change the direction of my career and I’m so excited about Surface Pattern Design. I was working like freelance architect for 11 years. After that in publishing house for 5 years. And now I hope to become designer. And of course I’m absolute beginner. :)

I love to walking in the Nature, read books, observe the colors in surrounding world. Also like to doodle and draw listening music.

I’m thankful to be a part of this workshop.

And hope to spend some great moments together.

A huge thank to Bonnie for outright sharing of skills, motivation and inspiration.

Have a wonderful day or night or whatever the time is in your spot ;-)

Almost all photos I took by myself while was walking in the fieald or forest, the other five I took from Google just to complete the idea of Inspiration boards.

I imagine the first pattern to mirror this year beautiful spring. Because I adore this season (like the other three of course). But this especially is connected with the new beginning in my life.

BOUNTY of BLOSSOMS

Spring flowers. Freshness. Aroma. Tulips. Sun. Grass. Leaves. Nectar. Freesias. Irisis. Cherry blossom. Fragrance. New beginning.

GREEN SLEEVES

Leaves. Spring. Forest. Happiness. Nature. Goddess. Chestnut. Life. Birds. Pinecone. Pine. Linden. Willow. Mountain. Trees. Little path.

Bounty of Blossoms was inspired by the miracle of spring that brings life and hope every year. Colors that had been hiding during the winter, waiting for the first sunshine rays to awaken them, burst with the beginning of the spring, filling the air with new fragrances and promises.

Green Sleeves was inspired by exquisite tree branches, dressed as if in lace in their foliaceous garments. Whether these tender arms softly caress you during your walk or simply peep through the cabin window, the rich variety of green hues and forms creates a peaceful and soothing mood, which fills the soul with tranquil happiness.

Lantern Stars was inspired by those moments at dusk, when the lanterns shimmer like garlands of candles, when the fireflies flash like little dancing stars and the rising moon starts to whisper fairytales.
