Tangled Butterflies Collection

Tangled Butterflies Collection

I’m so excited! I just finished my first collection and uploaded it to Spoonflower! I’m going to make two more color schemes for this collection, but I wanted to show you guys the first one today!

I drew every butterfly by hand, then scanned them, and traced them on the computer. I then positioned them in the repeat I wanted, and with the help of my tablet, started erasing bits and pieces of each butterfly, so that they would create the illusion of being intertwined. It took quite a long time, specially the main pattern, but I think it was worth it! I’m happy with the end result of the tangled effect.

I wanted to make sure every pattern worked alone and with each other (that is, after all, what a collection is all about), and hope to have done a good job, considering it’s the first collection I make. As soon as I update the other color schemes to Spoonflower I’ll order swatches and put them up for sale.

I hope you all have a great weekend. Mine promises to be great, with family coming to visit, irish dance rehearsals and a vegan pizza that’s waiting for me right now! =D
