This one was my husband’s idea. He said “You should do stripes that go from fat to thin one way, and then fat to thin the other way, and they should be gradients each way.”
So I gave that a go! The first design was straight stripes, but I just can’t. So I did some duplicating and off-setting, and played with the layer blending modes until I liked it.
It’s bright and rainbowy and feels very cheerful. Plus stripes are the easiest things in the world next to polka dots to make into a repeat pattern.
