Illustration Friday - Paisley

Paisley Allium

This week's Illustration Friday word is 'Paisley'. After struggling with a couple of ideas for this topic, I suddenly remembered the two lovely vintage paisley shawls which act as throws over chairs in my sitting room! I relieved one of its duty and scanned the fabric. With its beautiful patterns and muted colouring, I thought it would work well as a digital pattern to fill a flower silhouette from a fun font I found a couple of years ago over here.

  3. That's a really cool idea. The pattern itself is gorgeous, but I really like what it does with the flowers, especially the top two.
