Day 14- Just some stripes.

Just a few stripes to go along with the triangles. :) Not too exciting, but I worked all day today and made dinner... isn't that good enough?

Day 13! Just a few little triangles

Day 13- Inspired by quilts maybe? and "fallish colors"? :) It didn't quite line up along the bottom, I'll post a fix on it after I figure out how to make it line up. 

Day 12- Little Orange Polkas

I love polka dots. They make me happy, so I created a small orange polka dot pattern. I used a variation of this pattern for the umbrellas on the last pattern. This one I've added texture too and I like the worn, distressed feel it gives to the pattern.

Day 11- A few days late... but for good reason.

So Scott & I spent the weekend in St. George mountain biking in the rain... it was just a little bit chilly, wet & soggy. We managed to have a lot of fun and I neglected a few days of pattern making. Meanwhile I caught a cold and my patience for pattern making diminished but I am on the road to recover & am working on making up the days I missed. This is the first of them, Day 11! (inspired by Rainy St. George... I think it was only the days we were down there that it rained and I was really hoping for sunshine but that's okay. :) life goes on.)

Day 10- A little folk influence

I've always loved the simple yet complex design of Nordic Folk Art and so I decided to base a pattern off that influence. I used some simple colors, shapes and patterning to make something that I think is beautiful.

Day 8- Letters to Santa Claus

So I'm still on a Christmas holiday kick. I might have spent a lot more time on this one than I should have... but it was a lot of fun and I'm really happy with how it turned out. I used to love writing letters to Santa and getting letters back, so I decided to capture that in a pattern. Here it is:

Day 4- Everything is Cuter with Eyeballs.

Case in point? I think so. This one is kinda random, but fun I think.  Only on day 4 & I barely made it. Posting something new everyday is harder than I thought it would be.

30 Days of Patterns- Day 1

I've decided that I love making patterns. I'd like to develop my portfolio of patterns & so I have set a goal. I'm going to post one pattern each day. Check back every day to see how it's going! If you have any suggestions for patterns I'd love to hear those as well. Happy November! I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving pie. :)

Stone- A Super Natural Shower Rock

I had the opportunity to work with an engineering group at BYU on an entrepreneurial project. They designed & created a shower rock called Stone and needed some packaging design. So I came up with some options.  I really enjoyed this project. They decided to go with the white and turquoise bubble packaging theme to go with the shower theme. You can find their website and product at Design by They. :)

Just a Spoonful of Sugar...

A few months ago I was able to work with Design Dazzle blogger Toni Roberts in the creation of a Mary Poppins Party printable package. We started with the You're invited sign and went from there. The look was supposed to be very Mary Poppins, vintage, gingham, yellow, red, chalkboard. I think I captured it very well. All of the writing you see is my own. The basis for everything was from the chalk board backdrop and a lot of the elements you see in everything are pulled from there. It was fun and a lot of work!
