Paisleys…

I’ve spent the better part of yesterday evening and today learning how to create repeating patterns and paisleys in Adobe Illustrator, thanks to this tutorial and this tutorial. This has opened up a big can of worms for me – I’ve since uploaded each of the 4 pictured designs to my Spoonflower account, and they’re the fabric designs I’m proudest of thus far. I’m creating a birthday card for a 3-year-old with the elephant-on-paisley design, and I’m looking forward to re-creating Mr. Octopus in this fashion – he deserves a fancy background, after all.
