Sweet peas floral pattern - student project

Hello everyone!

I'm so thankful! I've learned a lot about creating patterns and work with Illustrator from this course. Thank you, Shelley, so much!

And let me show all steps of my first pattern created with Illustrator. I love to draw floral elements and flowers. So I pick one of my sketches for begining.

Step 1: sketch and line draw.

Step 2: work with brush, filling all elements with color.

Here is my basic color palette.
