Jane has followed up her mark making with enrolling on an online course.
'Make It In Design-Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design'
The first module involved short daily assignments,and using Photoshop and Illustrator.
She had to find inspiration,choosing shapes
,using lots of photos .She was inspired to use her doodles of flowers .
They are outlined in black and filled with colour then scanned into computer ready to be played with.Jane also used her Celtic shapes to playas you can see in the images above.Next come repeating designs in Photoshop and Illustrator ready to be scanned into her digital machine.
She also explored apps that help to pick colours to create mood boards ,finding some unusual combinations that she would not have chosen for herself.
She also found a set of Pantone postcards for £9.99 on Wordery that she thought would be useful to have.
The course allows her six months to complete the five weeks so we look forward to what she creates from her studies.
