Prairie Bloom Transcend
Here is my final for assignment 1.
My chosen trends were Transparent Overlays and White Fields. I have created a clip art set with coordinating patterns for my target market – Stationary.
I had in mind the image of a youthful girl spending a late summery afternoon on the prairie chasing butterflies, collecting flowers and creating crystal grids for good luck. I painted, traditionally with watercolour, bugs and butterflies and flowers and things that you might find while out on the prairie. I then digitized these images in Ps.
For the floral pattern I wanted it to look like she had tossed flowers in the air and that is how they landed. The other patterns sway away from floral but will hopefully be good co-coordinating designs.
My influences were bold, expressive, dreamy imagery and portraiture. I feel like this is conversational but I’m not sure.
These were created in Ps due to my time restraints. I will recreate in Ai as pattern repeats when time permits.
I hope to have this final set reviewed in the live critique session. On to week 3 and working on week 2 in the background. Phew!!
