Today's design is different and interesting. I was spending some time Googling different decades, mostly patterns, and came across a very cool image. The minute I saw it it couldn't stop staring.
And a close up
I thought it looked like some cool abstract you would see hanging in someone's 1940s living room. I started thinking about how I could recreate it. I am not talented enough to copy the people in the image but I have gotten really good at lines!
I started with two coats of Bettina Clouds. This is the first time I used Clouds and I am in love! It has a white jelly formula, however it only took two coats! It is gorgeous!
I added my first set of lines using Barry M Grey.
I used Barry M Mango for the orange.
And Blood Orange for the red.
For the bright teal, I used NOPI Teal Me Something New.
Helpful tip - I cut down a striping brush to a few bristles in order to create the thin lines.
I love how different this design is! It has the inspiration from the pattern and a newness of its own. Best part, is that it super easy to create!
Even though I have called this 40s abstract, I discovered that it is actually a 50s British pattern called Park Life. I think it fits in both decades!
