IF - propagate


For Illustration Friday this week - I had to look this word up in the online dictionary. Propagate! Not a word I hear used much. I mean, I kind of, sort of, knew what it meant. Kuddos to IF, for challenging us creatively, and improving our vocabulary, too! Any-hooo, it means to multiply, breed or spread, so I thought with the spring-like weather we have been having here in the NW (sorry to rub it in, all you snow-bound Mid Westerners!) I would do a flower pattern.

I really enjoyed making this fun, colorful pattern. Could you see this on a journal or notebook cover? Yes, indeed! It would be sooooo yummy!

This pattern is just what a girl needs for the wintery blahs! This is fantastic Nina! I love the 70's feel of it. It's very fresh and funky all at the same time. Great work my friend.

Great pattern! I can see it as a notebook or journal cover. I can also see it as fabric on a patchwork quilt.
