Crocuses and Daisies

One thing I have always loved is pattern, especially oriental ones. What I hadn't realised is that they have a name - Chiyogami. And what's more there is a blog on the subject - Chiyogami Monday. And playing around with my software today I realised it had a tile/pattern feature so created a pretty little digital tile of crocuses and daisies brought back from the park today. I never use my software for more than resizing photos for the web so it's fun to see what it can really do! It isn't, of course, a proper pattern as I've used a photo but it has sparked off lots of ideas for wedding designs as well as paintings. And maybe if I have time I might even try my hand at a chiyogami pattern as well!
