Cubism was founded by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. This art style emphasizes flat shapes and ignores traditional perspective. My design is inspired by Synthentic Cubism, which features simple overlapping shapes and brilliant colors.
Boho, or bohemian, style takes its influence from free spirits of the past. For example, the Romantics, the French Bohemians, and the Aesthetic Movement. Also, the Beat Generation and Hippie Culture. Although usually used in fashion and home decor, I created a boho inspired design.
The following are some of the characteristics of boho design:
- Bright and/or earthy colors
- Lace, crochet, and macrame
- Natural & rustic finishes
- Global & ethnic elements
- Mid century modern, and styles from the 60’s & 70’s
- Mixture of patterns
- Paisley, tribal, floral, & geometric prints
I thought I’d share a little bit of the process of how I create the designs in my shop.
I use Adobe Spark and start out by choosing a color palette and background layout.
Then I add icons/shapes and sometimes text.
The last step is my favorite, I add a pattern icon and fill it with a transparent color. Sometimes the pattern is on top of the shapes, and sometimes behind them, depending on the design and the effect I’m after.
Of course, the process is rarely this linear. Sometimes I switch up the color palette or background layout while I’m adding the shapes. Or I might choose the pattern first and then the shapes.
I added 2 new designs to my shop this week, Birdwatcher and Mid-Century. Plus, get 25% off everything on November 3 & 4.
