Theme: Broken Beauty
As I have been getting the Annie C Designs website in order over the last few weeks, I have looked at all of my old blog posts and designs. I have had this post on my mind, as it is about time for those hellebores to bloom again. I love that flower, but was never wild about the design I came up with for it (photographic patterns aren’t really my thing). I decided to work with the hellebore again for this brief.
I started with the single, isolated bloom:
Then, I started picking that guy apart. I converted the photo to a vector image in Adobe Illustrator, which gave me some blobs of color to work with. I broke those blobs apart and started rearranging them. My design ended up using about 4 petals from the flower. When I made it repeat, it ended up looking kind of marble-like:
And here it is as it would look on a few items:
I kept the colors of the hellebore in this design, but I think this could use some color adjusting to make it look a bit more modern.

Until next time,
