I have been really enjoying taking photos of little snippets of natural patterns. James loves collecting bits and pieces from nature, and I decided I should get in on this too, in a photographic way. That gave way to a little creative series idea, unimaginatively called natural patterns for now. I am going to turn some of these photos into little reduced down pattern illustrations - digital or pencil or paint, it doesn't really matter.
The first one is based on some beautiful little blue/purple/old-paper-brown, star-shaped flowers I found beside my parents-in-laws' pool.
These are the kind of fun, small, inspirational projects I need right now. I hope you enjoy! You can follow along and feel free to add your own natural pattern on Instagram - #abnaturalpatterns
