I hope everyone had fun winter holiday celebrations. I know that I did! I found myself in a busier than usual creative state here towards the end of December though. Had to lend a heavy hand (and way more time than expected) to a decorating contest at work while also trying to finish up the card-creating series I was doing. I did get the last video(s) posted to YouTube, but neglected to get it posted here. In it I featured a few cards with extra folds and you can see how I repurposed some of the mandalas I accomplished earlier in the year. If you want to watch them – jump over to my YouTube channel and check out the Folded Cards Part One and Folded Cards Part Two videos.
For today I have a new pattern to share with you. It’s one I developed based on a pattern that was embossed on a Thank You card I recently received. I was drawing a total blank on the name and just started referring to it as the pattern temporarily without a name, while working up the video and the worksheet. So in the end I decided on the name: TWOAN which stands for….. “Temporarily Without a Name.” 😛
Here’s the pattern worksheet. To save it to your computer simply hover over the picture. Right-click on your computer mouse and select the save option of your choice.
Here’s a video I did showing how to draw it and several creative options you could consider while playing with it in your sketchpad. In this video you’ll see the first time I drew it after I came up with the step-outs. Since that time I’ve had a chance to doodle with it more. You can see some of my playtime results just below the video here.
Below are a few sample pages I did using the Twoan pattern. Thanks for looking!
Have a great doodley day!
