From inspiration to pattern making

Finding inspiration on morning runs on the Big Island of Hawaii.  So many unusual shapes and textures native to the Island all begging to be picked up. I almost tripped a few times on my own feet.

Playing with shapes, colors and different textures found and finding inspiration for pattern making.

Playing with ideas and having some fun. I am not sure how the paint chip pattern came into play, but why not! I try not to think too much, but just have fun putting together the pieces of the puzzle. These patterns are all a work in progress, left to sit and be tweaked upon later. artistically afflicted blog, julie hamilton designs

For me , finding inspiration is all about starting and  getting the creative juices flowing. Some patterns I will love, others, not so much. It is all part of the pattern making process.Sometimes they just need a few days to sit and wait to have fresh eyes upon them. artistically afflicted blog, julie hamilton designs All patterns contributed to #365 patterns on Instagram.
