52 Patterns in 2015: Week 8

Blue Ridge Week 8

I’m calling this one Blue Ridge because it reminds me of sunset drives along the Blue Ridge Parkway here in Virginia. The triangles are mountains and trees with the late summer sun coloring their boulders and branches with soft pinks and hazy blues. If you haven’t had a chance to take this drive, add it to your bucket list ASAP.
Blue Ridge Week 8

For all it’s simplicity, this pattern was a tough one for me. I started in a totally different place, played with all sorts of colors and digital paintbrushes. Nothing was right. I became frustrated, felt totally uncreative, and worried that I wouldn’t be able to make something I’m proud to share with you this week. So I stepped away for a while, and came back with fresh eyes. I thought about things that make me happy, and it came together easily after that. All I need are nature and simplicity.

Hope you’re off to a great start this week.

xo, S.
