Day 20

Part of the fun of this pattern project has been reading your comments, suggestions and ideas. Thank you so much for all your input, I really appreciate.

Today is the 20th of September, and with it comes the 20th pattern of this series. I make them as I go, not in advance – except, when possible, for the weekend – and that means that everyday you see what I have been learning with previous patterns. Trial and error is the best tool, right?

So, let me hear your thoughts: how would you use this pattern? Do you have a favorite version? Where would you apply it?

Urgente

Caros leitores e amigos visitantes, por favor, não esperem nem mais um instante e leiam isto. Já. O Pedro Aniceto esteve lá e conta o que viu. Não deixem para daqui a bocado. Tem de ser já.

This pattern was so much fun; I think you can see that I had a bit of trouble deciding on the final version, so I decided to just go with the flow and show you many variations. As usual, I see it being applied in a fluffy duvet and sheets.

How about you? Where would you use it? Would you like to see a combination of more than one version together?

When working of patterns with a white background, I immediately imagine them being used on bed linen. That is exactly how I visualize this pattern, but am looking forward to hearing your suggestions, as they are always so creative and out of the box.

Where would you use this pattern?

Today’s pattern revisits the “cloud” theme as I wanted to push it to a denser pattern and see how it worked.

I think it did work and I see the potential in color combination. Do you like it? Where would you apply it?

This pattern uses the sketches I did for May’s issue of “We’re in Panama!” but didn’t use because of lack of space. They are from Mexico City’s Templo Mayor Museum and I’m glad they are now being used. My trip to Mexico was so inspiring!

Where would you use this pattern? What do you prefer to use? Abstract patterns or figurative?

Happy Saturday, everyone!

Today’s pattern mixes handmade shapes with formal repetitions. It would work well on a tote bag, a notebook… Where else would you use it?

Agora, em português: a todos os que saíram à rua para se manifestarem contra a política de austeridade que este governo (mais troikista que a troika!) nos quer impor a todos, agradeço o terem saído. Com muita pena, estou longe e não posso comparecer (nem vale a pena mencionar o nosso consulado honorário). Sigo atentamente, ainda que de longe, a situação que é de todos nós, presentes e emigrados.

Una palabra también a mis amigos argentinos: vaya cacerolazo! Muy bien!

Pelos caminhos de Paitilla

On my walk home I look up. #pty #panama

Sempre que vou abrir a minha caixa postal na estação de correios mais próxima, faço um pequeno passeio por uma das poucas zonas da cidade que conta com passeios nas ruas. Às vezes estão cobertos de lixo, ou de carros, mas a maioria das vezes a caminhada é bastante tranquila e agradável, cheia de palmeiras de várias formas e feitios.

Hoje, enquanto caminhava para casa, encontrei estes sinais.

NO PASAR #pty #panama

Ao lado, e para o caso de terem restado algumas dúvidas sobre o significado da placa anterior, estava esta:

Por si no fue claro la primera vez. #pty #panama

Agora já sabemos.

I would love to see this pattern on a cotton blouse. How about you?

Happy Friday!

Day 13

Although we are still in the first half of the month, I can already state that this project has been a success. A success for me, because of all the fun involved in creating a module and then seeing the magic happening with simple repetition. And a success in involvement, specially over on facebook, where you have given me so many ideas for applications. So, thank you all for your comments and suggestions, they have made my days.

Today’s pattern is also abstract. How do you like it? How would you use it? I love reading all your comments, so keep them coming!

Day 12

Day 12

Today’s pattern is an experiment: instead of a figurative pattern, today we have an abstract one.
How would you use it?
