Secret Garden: my first botanical pattern

Finally tried a botanic inspired pattern, yet another type of pattern I’ve been wanting to explore. I found it an interesting experience and would love to do more. I took a long time to settle on the colours, but I’ve decided this is the combination I like for this one.

Art Deco Calla Lily Pattern

I drew a pattern, started out inspired by Art Deco and the Calla Lily flower, but when I finished it also feels a tad Mid-century to me.

Clockwise from Top Left: Marigold, Scarlet, Indigo, Ocean

I think maybe that’s due to the sparse lines, the white background and the colour choices. Even though this ‘fish scale’ type of pattern is usually considered Art Deco, the art movement is usually associated with richness and luxury. So maybe a dark jewel tone instead of white for the background, gold or silver lines for contrast, and gradients for depth would make it more Art Deco. But I like how this turned out. I’m looking forward to trying out more such patterns.

Festive Triangle Pattern

Modern yet homey and snuggly like a quilt. This colour combo has a subtle Christmassy vibe to me 💗💚 Looking forward to explore other colours with this design!

In the meantime, the following pictures illustrate fascinatingly (to me, at least, haha) how the pattern translates on some items.
