This week my marks got wider. I used the same color for every strokes anyway every is different. Once darker the next one is lighter, with dark borders or stripes.
Due to the curved paper the strokes look like a small croft.Another army of watercolor-strokes. These are smaller but they would be perfect for a watercolor seamless pattern. I will do that alter this week.Fountain pen curls made it also into my sketchbook. The whole page is just one stroke. Beginning at the top left and curling it’s way from side to side to the bottom of the page. It just got disconnected when the ink wasn’t flowing fast enough.When you are making marks like these it’s easy to get lost in the motion of your arm and hand and just sit there and watch it happen.My last experiment for making marks was a little wet paperball I soaked with watercolor and rolled it over my sketchbook page. Maybe this one could be a interesting seamless pattern, too.
In our home it´s a tradition to make a little gift at St. Nicholas Day and I would like to incooperate this tradition into my blog. Because of that you will get a hand-illustrated pattern as a freebie today.
To match the season it is a pattern of little christmas tree branches in different sizes and colors. You can use the pattern for little christmas gifts, making envelopes or little (flat)bags or use the pattern as a background in other projects like your scrapbooking album. Please respect that the pattern are made for personal use only.
I made the pattern in different colors, so that hopefully everybody of you find a color that he or she likes. Lightgreen, Lightblue, Mossgreen, Black, Greytones and Lilac-Grey. And the same colors Lightgreen, Lightblue, Mossgreen, Black, Greytones, Lilac-Grey are also available in a different size of the pattern.
If you aren´t afraid of printing with some more ink onto your paper, then there are also some more variations. These colors have white branches and a colored background. You can have Old rose, Sand, Black und Grey. And of course there is also a option with another pattern size for Old rose, Sand, Black, and Grey.
I hope you have a great St. Nicholas Day and have fun with the pattern! And it would be awesome if you would link to my blog if you made something with the pattern.
