Pattern-A-Day #25


A festive pattern for the holiday.

I thought I'd mention that early this morning we awoke to the sound of the 11' douglas fir falling over onto the hardwood floor, shattering ornaments and flooding some gifts with water. I was already headachy with a cold and little sleep... but it will make a good story, right?

Here's how I created this design. I drew freehand circles in pencil in a grid on 1/2 of the page of 9x12" Fabriano watercolor paper without measuring. I added pink petals, turquoise circles {which I later regretted}, then circles inside the turquoise circles and 4 lines around each flower in Payne's Grey. It's part of the December Pattern-a-Day Challenge with A is for Anika
