Designs by Elizabeth McGarrigle

I started this project with a selection of paint chips which I cut up on the style of Matisse, simplified leaves to cacti.

I then scanned them in to the computer and began manipulating the look of them by adding simple texture and layering them on top of each other. I aimed to develop several patterns from one motif (the motif was the design with the red background).

I managed to create 5 designs from the one motif. This project was fun because it forced me to make snap decisions and move at a fast pace this was a great way to consolidate ideas in a short amount of time!

Thanks Patternmash ;)))
