My new theme sprint is: plants! I started off with a repeating pattern of an orange tree. I’ll be able to quickly repurpose the pattern to do a lemon tree, and probably a pear tree.

I’m finding it quite simple to create these repeat patterns now, even when they are somewhat complex.

This particular orange tree pattern would likely suit best as a tablecloth. See it on Redbubble.

OK, today’s my last day of this color scheme. Maybe! Tomorrow I will be either back to animals, or I may try my hand at plant-based patterns. Trees, leaves, and of course, florals.

I will no doubt use this color scheme again in the future, it’s served me well this week.

Today I went for a pattern that may work better for children’s products: rainbow rain and blue clouds. I could see working this into a baby blanket with a matching stripe as a supporting pattern.

Second to last day of the geometric rainbow designs. I’ll do my last one tomorrow and then go back to animals. However, I may do rainbow geometric animals!

I had a request for shooting stars or sound waves. I tried rainbow shooting stars but I wasn’t happy with the result. Then I tried offset sound waves and couldn’t get the repeat to work well. So I compromised with the following, which was much easier to repeat.

I continue to indulge my love of rainbows, geometric design, and hearts. And polka dots. Put it all together and what do you get? This:

In other good news, I have yet another artwork featured on Redbubble’s home page! Design 42 – My raccoon pattern. My birds have been selling quite well, even as they’ve moved down the page and below the proverbial fold, so it’s exciting to have another one featured. Yay!

I’m sick in bed today so I didn’t have a lot of energy to do something really innovative. Yesterday you got straight rainbow stripes. Today you get wavy rainbow stripes.

What is cool is that someone has already purchased yesterday’s design on a phone case! Someone loves vintage rainbow colors as much as I do! In fact, I’ve made 13 sales today so far, probably a cyber monday thing.

Yesterday’s chickadee pattern was cute, but it was a little too bland holiday pattern for my taste, like something you’d see in a wrapping paper bundle from a big box store.

I wanted to do something fun with the chickadees, and more to my taste. So I threw away the plant elements and decided to do some mid century shapes. Add in some funky color schemes and we have a design that is much more to my taste.
