New pattern Prow/Rhodia Journal swap


For the the sixth round of the Rhodia Journal Swap I decided to share my ‘Favorite Thing’ of creating steps that deconstruct designs and make them easier to draw.  My work is Zentangle®-inspired, but for the patterns I’m creating for this journal, I’m departing even further from the Zentangle method. (Tomorrow, you’ll see the Children’s book I did in the 5th round of the swap)

Because the swap is done in a Rhodia Webnotebook, which has a grid of light gray dots I decided to share patterns that are a bit difficult to draw freehand.  They can be done without grid paper but are much easier to do with squares.

Prow can be varied by the way it is shaded.

You can see my first pattern Pywakit in yesterday’s post.

  1. I have been toolin with this and I can't stop. Trying not to jump into my AutoCad Mode…you are truly love making me break out of my Engineering mode and letting my [freak] creative side give it, what it has wanting to feel and grow. You are an inspiration and I feel very grateful to have you in my life.

  2. Thank you both!

    I tend to be the opposite and find it hard to plan or keep things straight and tidy, lol. It does us good to try visiting the other side!
