I chose a color palette that reminded me of the photos I’ve been taking of berries and flowers and created this mood board.
I drew the berries & flower by hand, scanned them, and traced them in Adobe Illustrator. I chose a subset of colors for my pattern that I’m calling Berries & Blooms.
First I created this pattern by placing the berries and flowers in circles.
The assignment encouraged us to create variations on our pattern. For this version, I placed the berries and flowers in a half-drop arrangement on a striped background.
For this version, I created an iregular grid background that I arranged the motifs on.
I decided that I like the circle version the best and uploaded it to my Redbubble shop.

I’ve become a bit obsessed with mushrooms lately. And who can blame me when they come in such fun colors: red, purple, yellow, orange, green! I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.
