Industrial Revolution-REPEAT Round 2


Thanks again so much to everyone for voting for me in the first round!  I really appreciate all of the support.  The second round of patterns are up http://theprintedbolt.com/!  This month the theme was the Industrial Revolution.  Which seemed tricky initially...  As usual I went through the 5 stages of creative development:
1) Panic- What the hell am I going to do?
2) Excitement- Start doodling things, this is so much fun!
3) Frustration- I hate how this is looking... It's horrible!
4) Determination- I'm going to figure out why I don't like it and make it better!
5) Acceptance- I tried to push myself creatively, fix things that were bad and now its out of my hands.
I blogged more about my process and ideas at the REPEAT blog!  Go check out all of the entries and make sure to vote by Sunday the 15th!  Hurrah! the patterns from last round are up for sale on Spoonflower!  Also, the blog is moving so update your feed, bookmark whatever to my new blog and website!

Haha, I used to have a teacher who said that all pieces went through an "awkward teenage phase." Sometimes you just have to work through it! Thanks for voting! I'm on to round 3!
