I experimented with pattern making for this design! With Valentine’s Day around the corner, I thought I’d play with some of the whimsy you see in those popular candy hearts, and arrange them in fun pattern.
I decided to use shades of pink and purple to give the design some subtle movement. I arranged the design with the colors moving from dark to light to add some pops of color and interest to the design. Using watercolor to paint the hearts gives them some beautiful tonal shifts and patterning. I love the way this turned out!
This pattern was inspired by my trip to Australia. I traveled through Brisbane and got to hold a baby koala. Take one look at the photo of that below and you’ll get why it fits with this pattern.
