Let’s Make Patterns in January!

A new month in a new year is upon us, and I will be doing another month of daily patterns!

Let's Make Patterns in January!

Last month my friend Tricia from Daring Hue created watercolor backgrounds and added patterns to the color. I really loved the idea and how the patterns turned out, so this month I’m taking inspiration from her and will be creating a watercolor background everyday and then adding a pattern to the page with white, grey, and/or black acrylic marker.

I would love for you to join me and create your own pattern everyday. You can use any media at any size you want. Feel tree to tailor this challenge to suit you, your schedule, and what you want to accomplish. There are very few set in stone rules, besides the obvious: make patterns. Even if you can’t get a pattern done every single day, I’d love to have you join the fun when you can!

If you’ll be playing along, be sure to tag your patterns on instagram and twitter with #letsmakepatterns and/or #patternadayjan!

There is also a flickr group now, so if you post photos over there, please add your photos to the pool!

Starting the year off with lots of patterns seems like a good start for 2013. I hope to see daily patterns from you too!

  1. I’m so glad you got me into daily pattern making in the last couple of months. It really set a positive tone for the new year. I was so proud to have finished the whole month. 🙂 I’m still trying to figure out what I’m going to do in January. I’m taking a printmaking class, so I’m thinking of carving stamps out of a lino block on one of the weekend days, and then using the same 2 or 3 stamps to create different patterns throughout the week. I’m headed out to look at supplies soon to get some inspiration.

    Have fun with the watercolor! I dislike using marker to put down a background, so watercolor felt really easy to do.

    Happy New Year!
