Lorraine bought me a big book of paisley and I have been inspired!
First I drew a doodle. I had to trace over it with gel pen to make it neat enough. Then I scanned it in and put it through inkscape to vectorise:
I used inkscape to fill in the gaps with colour – this was a bit of an accident, I was trying to get it to pick up the outline, but it wouldn’t. However my accident looks pretty good I think! I can imagine this printed on fabric..
