This week I tried to take a different approach, more like a graphic designer and less like an illustrator. All of this design was created in photoshop taking each element and individually making the water, lily, lily pad, and dragonfly into two color 'stamped' illustrations in the photo gallery using flat colors. Then added the yellow to the lily center, and more detail into the dragonfly with a third color, dark pink. The next step was to come up with a fabric layout using these elements and create my pattern.
Last the frogs were created using 5 colors (yellow, red, blue, green and black), and in 2 positions to create interest and make them noticeable against the lighter green of the lily pad. The frogs were added to my pattern and here is the result!
Previews will be show at (8" x 8"). Deadline for entry was Tuesday, May 28, 2013. Voting starts today May 30th,2013 and continues through Wednesday, June 5th, 2013! Don't forget to vote!
