Pattern Temporarily Without a Name

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.” :P

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!

  3. This pattern is really cool. I especially love “To Nowhere” it is so full of possibility. I think though the ink and graphite picture you did in the video is my favorite. That took a bit of time to do I am betting, it is so intricate, but you made it look so easy to do! I tried the same thing and let me tell you it did not look as nice as yours!! I hope you put a scan up in the gallery of that one also. I love how the one in color does not really look like the same pattern! Thank you for sharing this with us!!

  4. Hi Cindy,
    thank you for the new pattern , steps and video. I specially like the last one “to Nowhere”. this is so Beautiful. It could be the disign for a wrought iron banister.I am sure a well-skilled blacksmith could work it out.

  5. Cindy,
    I love them done all ways, but this last variations reminds me of a wrought iron fence. Maybe you could call it “Iron maiden”! Just a thought.

  8. I really like this pattern. It reminds me of a heavy metal gate that you see in front of a private garden on entrance to a house, which as I’m looking at the pic you made it reminded you of also. LOL. Gina

  11. Looking at all the artwork using this pattern, I think you should call it Rawt Fence Ironic,…a sugestion I chose because of how fluid and not so stiff the pattern is…just a suggestion. Everyone’s contributions are beautiful.
