This book just came out last month, and I just received it this week! I’ve finally found some time to look thru all the wonderful pages! Talk about inspiration! Talk about color! Design! Art! Since, I’m a wannabee textile artist, I’m fascinated by this kind of stuff! I gear up and think, “Wow, I may be able to draw that” and “Look at how cool this looks, and it’s just one element being repeated and repeated. It’s all about color here!”. So, now I have a GoTo book when I’m fresh out of ideas. The book is 750 pages of design beauty!! Before I forget, this is the Print and Pattern Blog of the lady that put this book together. Yes, I have it in my following list!
Here are a few of my favorite pages.
This bird is right up my alley!! Love the crisp lines. The white outline border inside, then the tapering blue shades toward the center.
The pink-butterfly page really appeals to me. Surprisingly too, since I’m not that into pink. But it works as a background, since it’s got my all-time favorite colors of red and green within. It’s also got a bit of a paisley flair! I’m a big Paisley enthusiast, as well!
I’ve always loved these babushka dolls! Talk about all the clothes I could dress them up in with my markers! Oh, My!! That would be fun!
See what I mean, just simple triangles drawn again and again and again! And to be able to sit down undisturbed and color these guys in, while listening to music!! Ahhh, Heaven!! My only worry would be I’d run out of marker shades. But hey, I could just set a constraint and only do a certain color family or whatevah!!
This is for you Zentangle fans!!! Wouldn’t this be fun to give each little owl/ bird/ cat/ or dog their very own black and white pattern? I also like the way that some of these guys are spreading their wings!
