What a whirlwind December was! It was a busy month, but in the end, I was surprised by how easy it was to make a pattern everyday. And I wasn’t the only one! A bunch of other awesome creatives joined in and contributed a huge variety of colorful patterns to the mix. I thought it would be fun to share a few patterns from group that came together in December.
Sarah Rowe shared a beautiful variety of textures and colors using watercolor, marker, and even some collage!
Minerva wins the award for the cutest patterns! Aren’t they adorable?
Julie Tillman contributed a variety of styles of patterns in December. I love the donuts!
Natalie Davies delivered some awesome bright colors and fun patterns. I also love that she shared the markers and pens she used for each pattern in her photos!
Tammy from Daisy Yellow was an enthusiastic participant in the pattern challenge, using watercolor for her patterns.
Tricia from Daring Hue gave the challenge a second try in December, and this time she made one every day!
Barbara Wanhill’s patterns were all inspired from events that happened during her day.
Jeannine Saylor drew, stamped, and painted her nature inspired patterns.
Carin Cullen created layers of texture as well as pattern.
Rachel Kinbar had a really unique approach to pattern making, and it was always fun to see what she shared.
Carlene Taylor Simmons drew some awesome patterns with marker and pen.
Connie Hozvicka from Dirty Footprints Studio drew a few mandala style patterns.
D. Schuyler created colorful, geometric patterns, among others.
Rachel from Staunch Studio created a daily pattern on her iPad!
Becky Canham went with a holiday theme for the month of December, which really helped me to get into the holiday spirit!
I hadn’t planned for it to become a group project, but I’m happy it did! When I started creating daily patterns, it was something I did on my own as a way to get me doing what I love every day. Little by little it has caught on, and it’s exciting to see so many beautiful patterns everyday, especially in December since I chose to do only black and white patterns.
