As much I love fashion, I'm a total wimp when it comes to prints and patterns. So to curb this dumb fear, I spent some free time creating little mini paintings that feature prints. I made up each print myself, (still not sure how that happened, but glad it did!).

As it turned out, it was a lot of fun! Combining different colors and shapes was a great way to express creativity. In fact, the next time I go shopping or make an outfit, I might actually not choose a boring solid color.

In total, I created 32 designs on watercolor papers sized 5.5 x 8. Here is part 1 that features 11 of the designs. Which do you like the best? And do you suffer from pattern phobia as well?

Stay Tuned for parts 2 and 3!
