At Pattern Bliss blog I'll be sharing my favorite surface pattern design inspirations, trends, a sneak peek my pattern designs, my favorite shoes, and, of course, cute dog pictures. Plus you'll get a glimpse of what goes on inside my studio in my sketchbook series.
This mark making pattern by Chris Olson began with ink and paint splatters--plus popsicle hue color swatches to create a spring and summer textile for kids. Her contemporary pattern features a whimsical and feminine take on plaid.
When Chris begins the design process she experiments with ink and paint. Each time she makes an experimental painting for the pattern she adjusts the thickness and opacity of the ink and or paint.
