Tammy from Daisy Yellow was recently featured on the Create Mixed Media blog with a free tutorial called Bold Pattern Play. In this tutorial, Tammy encourages us to play with bold patterns on small squares/rectangles and then assemble them into a larger piece or journal page. I had to play along. By the way, that blog looks like it has lots of other great ideas and inspiration - I will be checking it out further soon!
I mounted mine on a piece of black cardstock and doodled in some of the gaps with my white gel pen.
Next, Tammy also published her seventh in the series Art Journal Tangents and Tactics. A similar technique but using loads of colours. I eneded up with enough doodles to fill two journal spreads in my little journal. These were both great fun and I encourage you to try them!
