From reference to print sketch idea

Following last Fridays posts inspiration in patterns in nature, I have for you a small sample of nature to textile print design process. The picture is of a beautiful mushroom purchased at the Farmers Market. I love the overlapping curves of mushrooms, it gives its form a very petal like feel without screaming "flower". I played around with this idea and adapted it into a classic rose fabric layout. It was a nice piece to create for fun.



  1. That's a mushroom? It almost looks like a carved wooden flower. So pretty.

  2. Surprising what nature can create, no? : )
