This is a post on my last summer school brief from a class I’m taking from Make it in Design with Rachel Taylor and Beth Kempton. This week we were given the theme of jeweled dissonance.
I start most of my projects with an inspiration board on Pinterest. Check out my board.
What got me focused was remembering that when I was little I had a kaleidoscope and how they looked like melted jewels. This was the picture that started me thinking I wanted to create some type of jewel motif.
Here was the color palette we were given.
I began to sketch and came up with these sketches
I loved the second drawing as I was trying to go for the kaleidoscope feeling. I took that drawing, scanned it into PhotoShop and began coloring it in.
Here is the final motif, not yet in a pattern.
And here it is in several patterns.
Here is the print sheet I created for the theme.
Have a fabulous week!
