In my Art of Digital Design class….we have been looking at THEMES, MOODS, COLOR SCHEMES, etc. So I have started another kit that I want to be Romantic papers. I will still work on my Wheatfield kit, but in the mean time I wanted to explore this new mood. The pattern is only a portion from the Dover Publication, “The Treasure of Chinese Design Motifs”, which is a Royalty Free book of images. I actually had to go in close to the picture and redraw lines to creat one solid pattern that didn’t have any edges cut off, then I could stamp the image 4 times on the page. The basic pattern had 2 full large flowers…and one that had its left edge cut of. I had to copy and paste half of one of the other flowers and then try to line it up and redraw the connecting lines. I really love how this page turned out…..I can’t wait to try to color in the page on a white background. That will take some time. I also gave this page a nice background texture. Now I need to come up with a good name for my kit. Any suggestions? I kind of want a romantic oriental theme. What do you think of this page?
