My Hellebore Bloom | Annie C Designs

Design-a-Day Spoonchallenge Day 8

Today’s theme for the Spoonflower Design-A-Day challenge was photographic. I’m a little “meh” on this one—it just isn’t one of my favorite looks. However, I did have a photo I wanted to start with, this one of a hellebore blooming in our yard:

Hellebores bloom in late winter/early spring. I took this picture last week. We’ve had these plants for a couple of years now, and they are finally starting to be happy little flowers. This is the only full flower (so far), but there are quite a few buds.

I started out by isolating the flower using a layer mask in Photoshop.

In making a pattern from my flower, I started by tiling the graphic and got a pattern that is pretty typical for me, but since this challenge was out of my comfort zone, I decided to go way out and make things a little less tidy (for me, anyway). I’ve made So Many Hellebores, which is, essentially, a giant pile of flowers.

I hope our yard looks like this someday in the future!

Until next time,
Annie
