“Creativity is a wild mind and a disciplined eye.” ~Dorothy Parker
I love combining collage and doodles with fun colors in my art journal.
I cut one of my printed patterns into curving shapes.
I then cut those curving shapes into strips and glued them into my art journal.
Then, I chose some coordinating and constrasing colors to add doodled details.
Next, I started drawing doodles and concentric lines in the shapes created by the paper strips.
I added color with my Pitt Artist Pens.
To complete the design, I added patterns of connected circles. I left some white space in the design to give your eye a place to rest.

I’ve been loving watching plants come to life this spring. That bright spring green catches my eye and makes for lovely photos.
I created the color palette by choosing 3 of my favorite colors. I drew the wave shape and the background texture by hand and traced them in Adobe Illustrator. I used Illustrator’s polygon tool to draw the rectangles.
This is the finished pattern.
I uploaded the pattern to my Redbubble shop and added it to all kinds of products.
