I used an art journal spread to inspire my Bohemian Patchwork pattern. While creating that pattern, I printed out many color variations before I decided on the final one.
I took one of those color tests and cut it up and glued it in my art journal, coming full circle.
Then I got out my Pitt Artist Pens and went to town with doodles.
Sometimes when I work in my art journal, I create each “layer” separately, and sometimes I work back and forth between them. For this spread, I did the latter.
And here is the finished spread, going from art journal to pattern, and back to art journal again.
This is another spread I made with the color tests from my Bohemian Patchwork pattern.
