Sparse Fruit Damask

Sparse Fruit Damask - student project

My first Damask pattern. They are tricky stenciling on to a cakes, but a whole greater feeling making one yourself. I made tons of errors, however, it was really good to see it and know what I can do differently. Barbe, thanks for such a great class. In 2018 I took the Indian Floral class and plan to redo the elements now that I have Illustrator.

I love the pineapple and pomegranates so I thought a fruit theme. The leaves was challenging, with some practice I will get better.

This is the block. I had a problem finding my reflecting point and making the copy, therefore my center was messed up:

This colorway I was playing around to see the contrast...
