It's crazy how long I've been away from blogging and, to be honest, even creating much. But I'm finally getting back into things and one of the things I am trying to do is fabric designs for Spoonflower's Design Challenges, as a good way to regularly create and practice.
This one is for the "Circles and the New Triangles" challenge, which is a strange name for a topic but opened a lot of possibilities for designs. I did some research and doodling and came up with this geometric design, meant to be made of hexagons and triangles but give the impression of circles (or at least roundness) because of the colouring and pattern. Plus there are little circles connecting all the lines. It took ages to make all the little lines since I was doing them at random, but I really love how the colour turned out on this and am very happy with it overall. I named it after the hexagon pattern and because the randomness of the lines feel more 'organic' than strictly computer-made geometric lines.
Head over to Spoonflower to vote in the contest or buy this pattern (it comes in wallpaper and giftwrap too!).
