Pattern 26/52

With this week’s pattern I am exactly halfway through the year! And what should be in the middle of the year? Summer! The temperatures are hotting up finally and what can I bring you patternwise better than a cooling lemonade – my entry for this week’s Spoonflower contest. I wanted to combine yellow colour blobs with graphic black line work, a combination I already played with for my English tea towel. The colour blobs are again ink on yupo paper. And I also sketched a lot of lemons sitting in the sun on our terrace.

The pattern creation process was a combination of Illustrator and Photoshop – livetracing all the line drawings and construct a blue grid in Illustrator and putting it then all together with the yellow blobs in Photoshop.

My finished pattern is called “Lemonade Jazz”:
