* Path of Positivity: Pattern Play



Welcome to the June Path of Positivity Challenge.

Our challenge is always Anything Goes with an optional theme.

This month's option is to design a project that is inspired by a pattern.

Honours and Prizes include:

  • $6 worth of images from Scribbles Designs, for a person chosen in a random draw based on all qualifying entrants.
  • A badge for the following honours: Top PickVoter's ChoiceMost InspirationalRandom WinnerDT Delight.
A pattern is a repeated decorative design.
Immediately Tracy Scott, the artist and stamp designer, sprang to mind. Tracy loves pattern play and designs stamps with this in mind. I chose two hexagon stamps from her Bee and Hexagon stamp set (TS059) and this is my design:

I repeatedly stamped the two hexagons, alternating the design each time. I coloured firstly with Inktense watercolour pencils, then when it was dry, I added depth with Polychromos. Some white highlights were added, I matted onto black card and heat embossed the sentiment. I like the simplicity of this and I love how playing with the hexagon shapes gave triangles and star shapes too :)

That's all for now.
We would love to see your creations! 
Just make sure that your entry is positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some way!

  1. Great design, I had to zoom in so I could see the hexagonal behind the flower. Makes a great card. If you have this month’s newsletter forGecko Galz could you forward it to me please. I didn’t get it this time. I have filled the form in again in case my name got dropped off somehow. Angela
