5 Random Objects for Idea Generation

Continuing my series of Idea Generation Experiments using 5 random objects I decided to create a repeating pattern. Patterns are not usually something I create, which is good as it gets me out of my comfort zone.

Using a photo of some of the objects on my ipad I traced off some of the shapes in Procreate.

Next, I duplicated and rearranged these shapes to create a pattern which I then repeated.

After colouring the pattern white, I then dropped in a watercolour effect which I created using Adobe Sketch
