Having now completed my Photoshop course I have taken this piece and repeated it several times, rotating and adjoining it into a large overall pattern.
Whilst doing this I also played with the colour. These aren’t necessarily the colours I would choose but it was a good way to try out some Photoshop CS5 options. I like the way the design has come out and it’s not at all as I expected. My original thought was for a dress fabric, and it would still work using pastel colours, but I can also see the pattern enlarged greatly and used in furnishings, such as quilt cover fabric.
