If you saw my Sea Turtle yesterday, you might have noticed a pattern on it’s shell. I’ve drawn this pattern before as it fits so well in any kind of shape and yesterday I added the accent of an aura and some other little flourishes. The amazing part of getting immersed in working on something is that the patterns kind of take on a life of their own, and before you’re even aware of it, things go off in a totally new direction. I knew I had seen something like this pattern somewhere, but when someone on Ornation Creation asked what it was, I just couldn’t find it. I finally did find Genevieve Crabe’s Fleurette and knew she was the inspiration behind my pattern…..I thought I should draw out the steps, since the pattern definitely went off into a different direction than the original by Genevieve, so here it is…..O-Cee
The name O-Cee is a little homage to this great group, Ornation Creation…such an inspiring, creative group of people!
If you haven’t been to Genevieve’s site, Tangle Harmony, go on a give it a visit. She has wonderful Stencils (I have the Mandala Stencils and they are AWESOME), does a weekly round up with all the tangly news of the week and beautiful inspiration from her own sketchbook. You’ll want to keep an eye on her site and subscribe for sure!
