For my first repeat design project I've chosen simple tiny flowers, inspired by the Japanese Washi paper. I really love the traditional Japanese pattern design, their delicate shapes and elegant color combos. I colored the drawing by hand.
This is the scan of my drawing. As you may see, I had to clean it well and work with the curves to have a completely white background.
Cleaned Offset: It has been a real challenge as I had lots of flowers messed up and the four cropped parts did not fit well...
Checking the repeat:
Colorway 1. I took off the white background and put a gray one.
Colorway 2: Chartreuise background
Colorway 3: Soft blue background and orange flowers with grey leaves.
Colorway 4: This is my favorite one, greyish brown background and blue flowers.
Btw, all images looked slightly desaturated when uploaded here so I had to add saturation, but they still look much more desaturated than in photoshop ... I wonder what could be the reason for that?
I really had fun and learnt lots of new things! Thank you, Kristi, for the helpful videos and explanations :) :)
