These past few weeks I have been trying to resolve what EXACTLY i feel most passionate about creating. Every day I have been dabbling in various creative projects including:

  • calligraphy
  • unique hand lettering
  • paper goods 
  • greeting card designs
  • original chalkboard paintings
  • original PATTERNS

Pattern creation is somewhat of an obsession of mind. I am addicted to shopping in all kinds of new and re-used item stores analyzing pattern, color and textures of fabric. When I find a color / pattern that SCREAMS "RACHAEL THIS IS SO YOU" there is nothing more satisfying than taking home that item to love. With this in mind, I have been more focused on trying to create personal work that is just that - personal. Colors I like, shapes I like, things I would purchase myself, things that I save for myself to constantly revisit for inspiration. All of these elements are how I made myself be decisive about what I was going to create today. 

I am extremely excited to share what I have produced.  Below is what I would consider my first successful repeat pattern! I may have clapped upon its completion...... SO much excitement and inspiration overflowing in me. 

Below is the process I went through to create it! Thank you for viewing, and I hope you enjoy! xx
