Daily Pattern Challenge (WOYWW)

Last month’s daily pattern challenge turned out to be not so daily. I don’t think I made it beyond the second week. I was trying to make all of my patterns out of stencils, and it wasn’t working for me. I should have switched over to using something else to create my patterns, but instead I just stopped. I’m jumping back into daily patterns this month without restrictions on what I can use to make them. The only restrictions are that I will be working out of the same Moleskine journal, and I want to stick to the same rectangle shape with a border around the pattern.

I want to make daily patterns simple this month, and so what’s on my workdesk currently is just my journal, a pencil, small ruler and some Faber-Castell Pitt Pens. All of these supplies are stored together in a plastic container next to my bed, and my “workdesk” is a bench hook that is supposed to be for carving linoleum blocks for printmaking, but it also makes a nice flat surface for drawing. It also gets bonus points for being super portable. I’m linking up to What’s on Your Workdesk? Wednesday again, and I’m looking forward to checking out other artist and crafters’ workspaces.

    Very interesting pattern book, I have never seen anything like it before. Such a beautiful surface to work on to with the moleskine journal, lucky you.

    Happy WOYWW

    I’m impressed you managed two weeks. It isn’t easy to do something every day. Plus you’ve come back to it, which is also admirable. Looking forward to seeing someone fab patterns.

    Happy belated WOYWW.
    Cheers, Rachel #34
