Falling Leaves

The wine leaves turning red are my favourite plants in our garden in autumn. 
There is so much beauty and radience in those colours 
and they captivate me every time I pass by 
(and go to the compost). 
All through September and October I watch this spectacle, 

which is now nearly over.

My latest play with surface pattern design
(I am just taking this incredibly fabulous
e-course Pattern Camp with Jessica Swift at the moment)
made those wine leaves come back to life on the computer screen:

So this is my first-ever pattern design
(it is a straight tossed repeat to use the designer lingo) 
and I couldn't be more proud.
There is still a lot to learn,
but combining drawing, painting and new computer skills couldn't be more fun.
Thank you leaves for your inspiration.

Hallo Cathrin, das ist ja eine schöne Idee, den Herbst als Muster zu bewahren! Du könntest dann ja deinen eigenen Stoff drucken lassen :-)
Bis Donnerstag
LG Lena
