I'm sure many of you are way more experience than I am with social media. With two little boys to care for, social media is a struggle for me. I love connecting with people but sometimes I'm under a pile of leggos somewhere with two little boys jumping around me doing what looks like a rain dance while my poor dog stares at me wondering how we ended up like this. When I'm able to surface however, I am excited to share what's going on in my life and I'm happy to say that I'm taking part in my very first blog tour!
A few weeks ago I took a Creative Live course titled Learn Surface Pattern Design from Scratch by Bonnie Christine. I've always loved surface pattern design AND Bonnie Christine so it was a no-brainer. I tuned in and of course bought the course right away. It was such an amazing class full of beautiful illustrations by Bonnie and it inspired me so much. As she went through the steps to create repeating patterns, which is what I was most curious about, I followed along with my own illustrations. Now I have a Desktop Wallpaper for you to download! I made a desktop version and an iPhone version. As I learn more about these things I'd like to offer more of these for download. They're quite fun to make and I just love making my stuff prettier don't you?
So follow along on this blog tour which starts with Bonnie's own Going Home to Roost blog. There you'll find the blog tour schedule and be able to follow along with all the talented designers that will be posting. I will be posting on October 21st so stay tuned for my post as well.
In the meantime, download my very first pattern below and if you have any designs of your own post them on social media with the hashtag #DSPSblogtour so we can all enjoy them.
Have a WONDERFUL Monday and a beautiful week!
