A few days ago I mentioned here that I have been experimenting quite a lot with objects and patterns. Not just decorative patterns with lots of lines, dots and details, which is usually my thing, but building patterns using separately illustrated objects.

This is one of the pieces I finished recently.

This is quite new to me and I was rather happy with the result. I liked how the watermelons turned out, their colors and their particular imperfections in terms of sizes and angles.

Then, just for fun, I decided to test the pattern on a few products from my Society 6 gallery.

I thought the result was really sweet. There is something about watermelons that always make me happy. Maybe it’s their summery colors: green and pink is one of the best combinations. Or maybe it’s their shape that resembles a sort of smile in a way, doesn’t it? :0)

Happy pastels

♥ This week I surprised myself by purchasing a pink dress.

Last time I owned a pink dress, I must have been 12 years old. I love pinks but I’ve always been more inclined towards the grays, blues and blacks. I’m happy and excited about this dress, though. Pinks (and pastels in general) are such happy colors, plus a change is always nice, right?
