Designing Patterns

The first fabric patterns were made from landscapes.  This photograph was taken, flipped and spliced together in Pages, then flattened out and given multiple color treatments in Photoshop, before being uploaded to Spoonflower.com and made into a fabric pattern.

The second evolution was to photograph plant material on the snow covered ground.  Dried dogfennel was photographed, flipped and spliced together in Pages, then flattened out and given multiple color treatments in Photoshop, before being uploaded to Spoonflower.com and made into a fabric pattern.

The third evolution was to photograph on matt board.  Maple helicopers, pine needles, apple and redbud blossoms were laid out on gray matt board then photographed.  The photo was flipped and spliced together in Pages, then flattened out and given multiple color treatments in Photoshop, before being uploaded to Spoonflower.com and made into a fabric pattern.

The fourth evolution involved taking photographs of monoprints taken of plants, logs and stumps.  Monoprints were photographed, the photo was flipped and spliced together in Pages, then flattened out and given multiple color treatments in Photoshop, before being uploaded to Spoonflower.com and made into a fabric pattern.
