Using the colours from the Colour Moods January and working them into a simple flower pattern. The background colour can be almost any colour: a rich pink, a light grey or an off-white. One could change colours for hours and get different results every time.
This design was chosen by Marie Perkins, the editor of the famous Print & Pattern blog to be featured as one of the works from students from the e-course Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design.
