Day Twenty-One – 30 Days of Creativity 2015

Today’s theme was ‘games’ so initially I was going down the Olympics route… but then decided to do a flashback to a board game that I designed as part of my Open University degree:

Today’s theme was bird, and because my favourite bird is a kakapo, I made a cartoony twirly-whirly kakapo pattern (albeit he has the wrong number of toes…):

#30doc theme of #bird was always going to be a #kakapo #parrot, right? #graphic #pattern

Day Eighteen – 30 Days of Creativity 2015

The theme for day 18 was crown so I played around with patterns in Inkscape again and made this, inspired by paper party hats:

Day Seventeen – 30 Days of Creativity 2015

Today’s theme was Autumn and I’d had an idea a while back to do something involving autumn leaves or seeds. It seems autumn is late in coming this year because I really struggled to find any decent amounts of turning leaves or ripe seeds. I found one solitary tiny conker!

In the end I found a nice photogenic acorn at my mother’s house and decided to create some quick and simple doodle art around it:

Day Sixteen – 30 Days of Creativity 2015

I’m disappointed with myself on this one. Seems it’s harder to draw a fairy cake on a computer than you might think. Perhaps cupcakes are easier?

Day Fifteen – 30 Days of Creativity

‘Textile’ was a tough theme. I have a much smaller fabric stash than I used to, and hadn’t really planned this one enough to make something. So, instead, I arranged some fabric that I had set aside for a future project, and created a pattern out of it. Someone said it reminded them of stripy liquorice allsorts!

Day 15 of #30doc – #textile which is a #pattern made from some fabrics I'll be using on a project soon!

Day Fourteen – 30 Days of Creativity 2015

Today’s theme was rain, and happily it was raining! As I already have rain-themed jewellery in my Etsy shop I thought it might be interesting to use the rain to help to create something.

I tried out my new Sharpies first, but even with a good soaking they weren’t budging (kudos to Sharpies for being indestructible):

So I went down the ink route and finally managed to get some mini chromatography going on:

I’m pretty pleased with the result – simple but effective.
