I think all of us have some ideas that do not let us stay calm and just obsess us. I don't know what those ideas are for other people, but for me, in one way or another, they are always related to drawing, painting etc. One of such obsessive ideas was to create a pattern for a fabric. It wasn't really a fixed idea, until I discovered the site of SpoonFlower, where one can order a design (one's own or created by fellow designers) printed on fabric. Then it became fixed idea. And this is the time now, that I can finally touch the fabric. When it was just an image in my head for so long (by the way, it is printed in US, so it took a month for order to get printed, shipped and arrive to my place), it was even hard to believe I really have it in my hands... even though, now it is already almost a week since I've received them, so maybe i get used to it already little by little. And I really liked creating patterns! There might be much less of creative work and improvisation in it, compared to my usual silk painting activity, as the bigger part of design I did with my computer. But in any case, those things are different, I did a bit of 'mass production' I'd say, even if yet I have only a meter of each fabric, so it is still quite unique and one of a kind in this world :))
Turbūt įdomu, kaip jie buvo kuriami, įdedu savo piešinukus, kuriuos nuskenavau ir priredagavau abu raštus.
I guess you would be interested to see frome what I've created these, so I add here my drawings, which I scanned and edited to become patterns.
