Challenge #168 - Rain

Rain, what a cute, simple pattern - I don't think I've ever drawn with it except to slap it into my pattern journal, so this week's diva challenge was my big chance!

Here's what I've come up with:

It's probably pretty obvious that Rain made me think of string:


I love the way that, with a few simple adjustments, it's easy to make it appear to be twining around something.




Hope your weekend is fabulous!

  18. You definitely like string. Not sure which you like the most, string or flowers. Maybe a close race. I really like the last one where you made it like a wall hanging. Love the screws holding it up.

  19. Yet again you have blown me away. I love the way your mind works; I just wish mine worked that way. I love every one of these, but if I had to pick a favorite, it would be the third one.
