Day 21 – Rainbow. I recently did a rainbow pattern and I love it so much that I decided to expand on the idea and make another pattern that can go in the same series, but STRIPES!

Day 22 – IKEA. Last year I started a dollhouse pattern for the theme house or home, but had such high expectations I was kind of frozen with the fear of screwing it up. This year I started tackling it more, inspired by the flisat dollhouse by IKEA (which I just happened to purchase earlier in the month as well). I want the pattern to have each dollhouse filled with dollhouse furniture and decor when it’s done, but I don’t know… still afraid.

Day 23 – Scribble. When I was in college we had to do a “portrait” of our foot done entirely in scribble (one continuous line) emptying a ballpoint pen. I loved how everyone’s scribble is different and unique, like handwriting. Some people have all back and forth and some people are all circles and mine is a combination of loops and hard turns.

Day 24 – Fly. One thing that is so great about Anika’s prompts are how most themes are words that can be interpreted in many ways. I was stumped for a while on this day’s theme, with just the image of a house fly pattern stuck in my head. It wasn’t until later, when I did a search in my flickr archives for the word fly that I saw “Flying Geese” and realized of course I had to do a watercolored version of my flying geese quilting. I love how this piece came out.

Day 25 – Garden. I hadn’t done a “little art book” pattern yet, so I drew and painted these cuties, my favorite from our garden, snap peas.

Day 26 – Slow. A water and lazy river inspired watercolor lined piece

Day 27 – Ends with “ing”. String!

Day 28 – Outline. Based on my grass paintings. The base was acrylic paint applied with a roller, then I painted white silhouette “outlines” in white and then came back in with green, and then finally added the veins.

Day 29 #patternjanuary #birdhuse This one gave me a lot of grief, similar to “dollhouse” last year, I have/had such high hopes that I kind of become paralyzed with fear of screwing it up. It’s funny how I had posted a pic of a cute little birdhouse earlie

Day 29 – Bird House. A work in progress, watercolored quilt blocks with birdhouses as the center. This piece got me excited to paint and decorate a real birdhouse. I’ve added a scalloped shingle roof, but no paint yet.

Patternjanuary

Day 30 – Skate. Letters were hand cut from gelatin prints made with my handcut paper stencils. Originally there was going to be a rollerskate at the end of each WEEEE, but then I nixed it.

Patternjanuary

Day 31 – Night Sky. While I was working on the tropical themed piece, I realized that the hexagon kind of resembled a coffin. I loved that initial piece so much that I decided to continue with the theme, and inspired by the coffin idea, make a moon/night pattern. Originally I wanted the moons to be at different phases, but I did one and I was afraid I was going to screw it up, so I added some in digitally for the time being. You can see that here.

Thank you for following along on my PatternJanuary project. I’m so glad I participated again this year and am proud of the work I created and have begun. I hope I can finalize many of these and use them for future projects.

I’d also love to invite you to visit and follow me on instagram, as I share most of my work and WIPs there first. Have a scroll through my hashtag #robayrepatterns and feel free to reach out with any inquiries.

Pattern January 2018 part 1

January 2018 was my third year participating in Anika Starmer (aisforanika)’s #PatternJanuary project. Anika shared the following list of 31 prompts for the month and participants make patterns.

I’m sharing this now so that everyone can see and hopefully be inspired to join me in Pattern January 2018! @aisforanika just announced her list and I know she works hard on organizing it. I try not to look ahead, and just deal with each prompt as it come

I’d like to share the patterns I made in 3 posts and I’ll try to keep the commentary on each to a minimum.

Pattern January day 1 pop

Day 1, Pop. I made this cute and quick theme digitally, a combination of the Paper app, as well as photoshop on the desktop, and used my hand lettered font.

Ultra Violet Pattern January day 2

Day 2 – Ultraviolet. 2018’s Pantone color of the year. If you click over to this instagram post, you can read more (and slide through more images) to learn more about the development of this pattern, including referencing old images in my flickr archives.


#patternjanuary

Day 3 – Aquarium. This piece was inspired by the Wilco song I am Trying to Break Your Heart, AND the Heather Ross goldfish patterns. Once again, you can visit the instagram post to sroll through more progress images and inspiration pics.

#patternjanuary

Day 4 – recipe. For this pattern I ended up using some elements from a pattern from last year, added new and created a recipe card. See Instagram to see a flip video of the recipe card in action.

Day 5 – Tourist. I thought of Hawaiian shirts and made my own Hawaiian pattern. See Instagram to see progress pictures and the most adorable dress made from this pattern.

Untitled

Day 6 – Shoes. I referenced a picture I had taken of a bunch of Chuck’s and made this pattern. You can see that reference picture and progress shots at instagram.

I don’t know I dragged my heals so long on day 7 #patternjanuary #letsmakepatterns I want to make a bunch little watercolor illustrations of planted houseplants, but after I made the #stringofpearlsplant, I got distracted by the pattern the plant itself m

Day 7 – Plant Lady. This piece is a work in progress. I have actually made more plant patterns and so I need to scan and put them together still.

Pattern January winter

Day 8 – Winter. I’m sad to think this was actually my only pattern all month that was made from cut paper stencils.

Untitled

Day 9 – Spirit Animal. I drew a Bison, scanned it and added watercolor. I would like to adjust this, but we will see.

Pattern January

Day 10 – craft. What says craft more than the variable plethora of adhesives. I made quick sketches of a few from my collection.

I’l be back with the next 10 patterns shortly.

 

#robayrepatterns part 3

I'm gonna try and attempt #patternjanuary #letsmakepatterns. I had such a fun time last year, you should play along too!

Part 1 can be seen here

Day 21 #patternjanuary #folkart I decided to go with barn quilts and these were done in watercolor. My mom introduced me to barn quilts, and we attended a lecture and took a workshop last year on them. Did you know they are a relatively new (like since th

Day 21 Folk Art – I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this one. This is probably my favorite from the whole month. Last year the barn quilt author and artist Suzi Parron came to speak at my mom’s quilt guild, and then we did a workshop with her as well, where we got to make our own barn quilts. My mom has been obsessed for years and it was so interesting to learn about them. The most fascinating thing being that they are a brand new art, as in this century! Don’t they seem like something that should have been around in Amish country for hundreds of years? This pattern is going to be made into a fabric, for sure!

Day 22 #patternjanuary #bicycle I actually made this pattern in 2013 but I don't think I ever shared the full thing. It has been stapled to a homasote board ever since and needs to be cleaned up and worked into a repeating pattern still. As you may know I

Day 22 Bicycle – This pattern was kind of a cheat, in that I made it years and years ago, but I don’t think I ever shared it fully. Maybe I posted a pic of a bike or two, but never the full thing. I have even made little pinback buttons of the bike illustrations pictured here. I penciled in the bikes, then inked them, then painted very wet and loose watercolor around them. In case you don’t know, I love bikes. My own bicycle in particular, and if you haven’t heard it before, I have bought my same bike FOUR times because I love it so much!

Day 23 #patternjanuary #pomegranate in a #littleartbook. #robayrepatterns

Day 23 Pomegranate – When I think of pomegranates I think of my mom and how she seems to take pleasure it preparing a pomegranate. She’ll prepare everything, gathering the fruit, a bowl, a knife and towel, opening it up and peeling it and filling a bowl full of the juicy gem like fruit pebbles. I also think about how much I love pomegranate too, but have way less patience and thus end up buying Pom juice in the fun shaped bottles for a rare treat. This pattern is a nod to the fruit and the juice in an abstract form, in a little art book.

Day 24 #patternjanuary #rain This wasn't my first attempt, the first one was a flop but I really like how this one came out.

Day 24 Rain– If I remember correctly, I had a different plan for rain, but it didn’t really pan out, so last minute I just did this with my Aquash water brush pen, and navy blue watercolor, and finished it off with splatter, and voila. It’s one of those patterns, that I wish they all could all be so quick and easy-peasy.Day 25 #patternjanuary #blackandwhite I used my #gelliarts mini rectangle and my hand cut paper stencils. They are all secondary prints, printed once through the stencil, then removed the stencil and printed again. There's something about printing like th

Day 25 Black and White – Last year I won a set of Gelli Arts mini shaped plates, and this rectangle one was my absolute favorite. I decided to make a pattern using just black on white paper, with my hand cut paper stencils.

Day 26 #patternjanuary #turquoise and decided to channel pal @ohsoniceshop and sketch a bunch of turquoise rings.

Day 26 Turquoise –  I was trying to go for that silver and turquoise ring thing. Turned out more meh than I had hoped for.

Day 27 #PatternJanuary #string. I think I've done this before, but it's an attempt to recreate a picture from a bajillion years ago, of a hand spun yarn I made, dyed with koolaid. This was made with #gouache and #coloredpencil #robayrepatterns

Day 27 String – I thought of this picture of handspun yarn I made years and years ago from fiber I dyed with koolaid. This also turned out more meh than I had hoped for. Day 28 #patternjanuary #floral - This theme is like the swan and house theme... my head is filled with too many ideas and it kind of paralyzes me. I'm putting this out there now, but it's definitely a theme I want to return to. #robayrepatterns

Day 28 Floral– Floral is another one of those pattern themes that I would love to explore, more, more, more and more of! This was just a quick pattern that I imagine being reproduced on fabric, but in a way that is reduced so the pattern is fairly tiny.

#patternjanuary #kaleidoscope I just piled a bunch of my pretty papery bits down, took a picture and then made this digitally. As I was starting out the first one I made looked too bland and boring so I added more tiny pieces of paper to break up the spac  Photo

Day 29 Kaleidoscope– This pattern started out from the picture on the bottom, and then I assembled into kaleidoscope circles on the top on the computer. It came out way more busy than I had envisioned. That is funny because I restarted once when I deemed the first pile of collage papers to be too plain and basic.

Day 30 #patternjanuary #plaid I actually wanted to make a hand painted buffalo plaid Christmas card for 2016, but didn't get to it, so, how about as a Valentine? #robayrepatterns #letsmakepatterns

Day 30 Plaid – Last year I had the idea of making a greeting card for Christmas with “buffalo plaid” that I would make from loose watercolors. I never got around to it, so this theme let me finally make that pattern that I wanted to do.

Aaaaaaand my final #patternjanuary, themed #fruitsalad When I think of fruit salad I think of my friend Henry and how we are both VERY opinionated and united about what fruit salads should be like in restaurants. We've all been there, disappointed by a fr

Day 31 Fruit Salad – I’m pretty opinionated on my fruit salads. There are few things worse than ordering a fruit salad at a restaurant and when it arrives it is just cantelope, honeydew and a grape. That is NOT a fruit salad. Fruit salad needs to have a LOT of variety. I built this sketchy fruit salad pattern on the computer and I rather liked how it came out.

#patternjanuary 2017

And here the full collection. At the end Anika asked people to answer a questionaire on how the month went:

  • 1. My favorite pattern – the barns/barnquilts for the Folk Art theme for the detail and subject matter being close to my heart.
  • 2. Favorite prompts – swan, home, and floral. These are prompts that made me overflow with ideas and I want to go back to them and do more, more, more. The swan and floral themes were ones in particular that I already had plans for in my head prior to starting patternjanuary.
  • 3. Biggest challenge – sleep. It’s something that I struggle with regularly anyway. My natural sleep habits would have me up late because I’m most productive and creative late at night, but I have to work at 6 a.m. Last year I finally stopped fighting it and started going to bed around 9 p.m. but the week before January I was on vacation so I slept like I wanted, meaning up late. Then working on patterns, wanting to do them justice, I ended up staying up late furthering the bad sleep pattern. I have been surviving on little sleep for the month (and being late to work more often than not, as well 😱)
  • 4. Most frustrating moment – had to be the times that I allowed myself to fall behind schedule because I was so overwhelmed by the prompts that I really wanted to do amazing stuff. I still haven’t finished the dollhouse pattern.
  • 5. Most popular pattern – rain. Funny because it was one of the simplest and quickest patterns I made after my first idea flopped. But I have to say that almost all of my patterns this month out perform my average posts. Thank you everyone, for the support!
  • 6. Biggest surprise – citrus. It felt like the biggest dud, especially since I was feeling so rusty AND because the picture of it was taken at night, but it got so many likes and comments.
  • 7. Proudest moments – being featured on other accounts and people reaching out to me about future projects due to these patterns ❤
  • 8. Patterns I want to redo – almost all of them need additional work, and as stated above the dollhouse one was never completed, and I want to do additional swan, house and floral patterns, but as for completely redoing, there aren’t any I’d scratch and start over.
  • 9. Goals for next time – maybe stick within one medium? My pieces were all over the place from digital and hand drawn, to watercolor, and collage. Although I do think that allowing myself to mix it up helped me to stick it out. I worry that if I limited myself to one medium that I might get bored and throw in the towel. I just thought of another goal and that would be inspired by @jessee_artschooldropout who made her patterns, finalized them and then uploaded them to spoonflower all in one go. That is amazing.
  • 10. Plans for February – catch up on all the things I neglected during January. I have so many things that I need to do that I’m a little overwhelmed where to begin. But number one should be to clean off my work table so I can get back to serious work

#PatternJanuary Recap

mosaic69fbc5f50b416c6fd4663b0bde203d693498f8a9

I put together this collection of all 31 days of my Pattern January pieces. I’m pretty happy with it and proud of myself.

Dear Anika, You ROCK! Thank you so much for coming up with this awesome project. It was exactly what I needed at exactly the right time. Not only did you come up with this awesome challenge, but you are such an incredibly supportive and creative inspiration. You challenged me to create a new pattern every day in January, but you also challenged me to do and be better! I hope you know that you are a gem, and not even the kind of gem that my parents used to call me as a kid, when they’d sarcastically say “what a gem”  and then roll their eyes dramatically. No, you are the kind of precious gem that one doesn’t find often and when one does, one holds on to it, and tightly. Thank you again for putting yourself out there, for prompting other people to do the same, and for just being yourself.

Week One Pattern January

Week Two

Week Three

Week Four

#PatternJanuary is now over and Anika has officially decided to continue on with a weekly prompt, Wahoo! If you are interested in participating, follow @aisforanika and @letsmakepatterns on instagram and don’t forget to check out the hashtag #patternswithanika. Week one theme was Bouquet and week two was just announced, Chocolate.

Week Four #PatternJanuary (+ a few days)

During week four I was suddenly hit by a few things.

First of all, before I even realized it I had gotten over the halfway hump and had successfully posted a pattern everyday (champion hand swing over the shoulder emoji).

Secondly, I was suddenly overcome with a mile long to-do list of things I want to do after the month was complete. I had been so productive and had a TON of forward moving momentum and couldn’t wait until the month was over and I could work on this and work on that and everything else under the sun and moon. As much fun as I was having, I was also excited to start on some new projects.

Lastly, it’s funny how as the month went along, what I thought would be a typical pattern for the day at the beginning of the month (quick and small in a little art book, easy-peasy, no stress) ended up being no longer acceptable in my mind. As I did pieces that were more time consuming and I became more and more pleased with them, the standard elevated and I felt guilt if I only had time to do a quick piece.

Case in point:

Day 22 Letter
Little art book

The theme of letter should have been an amazing pattern! I obviously went with a mail theme and I LOVE MAIL. Instead, this was one of those days where after I got off work, got in my daily steps and all the other things that had to be done, it got so late that I ended up just grabbing an old gelatin print, slapping it in a little art book and scribbling out some envelopes and postcards in white gel pen with a touch of pencil shading and called it a night. The letter pattern should have been a passion piece, where I spent all day thinking of ideas, a good amount of time playing with ideas in my sketchbook and then a few hours executing the pattern.

On top of everything else I had going on in January, I was also sick for 3 weeks. Now that the month is over I am astounded that I got through it and made a pattern every day. I am immensely proud of myself.

Day 23 Everyday

This is the closest I've come to the midnight deadline. It took me forrrreverrrrr to think of an idea for "everyday" but then it hit me, black and white stripes! That is my everyday.

This was a day that I was kinda  stressing out about what I was going to do for “Everyday”. I don’t think I had a single idea until I finally sat down to try and get to business and it finally hit me. Black and white stripes. That really is part of my everyday. I’ve had a love affair with stripes since high school and I remember being crushed hearing “horizontal stripes are not flattering” but I decided I didn’t care. They made me happy. I’ve kinda transitioned to preferring a black and off white or cream. For this piece I created some new black and white stripes and opened other little art books to pages that were already black and white stripes. The one page that says “ERRYDAY” was an already made page, but the center box was empty, so I was able to add that.

Day 24 Supplies

Day 24 #patternjanuary, #supplies. This is the first time I've made a pattern that I'm actually excited to make into a fabric. It would need some work because I literally just did a rough paint bucket background so the edges are wonky when you blow it up.

I immediately thought of art supplies, and then when I was thinking of specific art supplies I thought of my love for tiny pencils. I love tiny pencils. I feel like if you use a pencil all the way down to a nub, you did the pencil great justice. Meanwhile I have a coworker that was throwing away pencils after she sharpened them a few times and it broke my heart, so she started passing them off onto me, hurrah! I love, love, love this pattern. Originally I was just going to do one yellow #2 pencil and create stripes, but after one I had to do another and the next thing I knew I was searching my drawing table and art bins for other small pencils to paint.

And the #tinypencils I used as reference for the "supplies" pattern today

There’s the eraser, which would have come from my coworker Fred that passed away last fall, the chewed pencil, the blue drawing pencil left over from college, the “natural” wood colored pncil and for one more touch of variety, a red mini pencil. I plan on making this pattern into a fabric and hopefully a skirt.

Day 25 Put a Bird On It

Put a bird on it, papercut over gelatin print collage #patternjanuary

I saw this theme ahead of time and thought “That’s gonna be a fun one!” but when the day came I got stumped. Finally I decided to watch the original skit and was reminded that most of the birds they used were silhouettes of birds. Boom! I drew out birds on black construction paper and then pasted them over a gelatin print collage and I ended up really liking it.

Day 26 Argyle

#PatternJanuary #argyle - Vintage papers (Browns) and gelatin prints (pink) with digital linework (dots) - off to bed 😴💤

This piece’s color palette and materials were inspired by this piece by Suzanna Scott. I went into my studio and grabbed a bunch of vintage papers, and then went through my gelatin prints for pinks with patterns. I cut the papers into squares and alternated the vintage with the prints, assembled them on paper, scanned them and then repeated the pattern and added the white dot line digitally.

Day 27 Snowflake

Day 27 #PatternJanuary #snowflake

Continuing on with my grass and prairie theme, I thought how as much as I’ve photographed winter prairie, I’ve never tried to paint or draw it. I looked up some pictures I had taken and there was a lot of them with dead queen anne’s lace. I was pleasantly surprised how this one came out. I put down a layer of gesso to add texture to the paper and then built layers upon that. I originally thought I was going to try and accent with white gel pen for snow or frost on the queen anne’s lace, but after adding a few lines I could tell it wasn’t going to work and I was happy with how it came out, without any additional snow on it.

Day 28 Snowflake

Work in progress, #PatternJanuary

When I read log cabin I immediately thought of nothing else other than the quilt pattern. Instead of pulling from already patterned papers, I took it upon myself to decorate papers for this pattern.#PatternJanuary #logcabin #letsmakepatterns #robayrepatterns

It definitely didn’t come out as I had hoped. You win some (snowflake, above) and you lose some (log cabin)

Day 29 Diamond

#Diamond immediately made me think of the mailart series I did with these random geometric shapes. I painted this in color but I actually like it better in black and white. 2 more days to go! #PatternJanuary #robayrepatterns #letsmakepatterns

This piece was inspired by a bunch of mailart pieces I’ve made in the past with made up geometric shapes. I made it in color, but liked it a whole lot more when I de-saturated the color dramatically. De-saturate Dramatically, that has to be an oxymoron. This piece and the next piece were created in a hotel room downtown Chicago, that was gifted to us by Matt’s family. I love making artwork in hotels. Change of scenery.

Day 30 Stipple

#PatternJanuary #stipple Inspired by the way @aisforanika discharges her brush onto another sheet of paper with the intentions of building upon it to make a new pattern, I created this piece. I added the stipple polka dots with a 40% gray prisms color mar

I was inspired by Anika’s periscopes where she shares how she discharges the paint or ink from her brush on a consecutive page in her sketchbook to create new patterns. Normally I’ll just use a rinse jar and try to drop any excess paint back in the well on my palette. I was using one of my water brush pens, so sometimes I’ll turn to a scrap paper and drag long lines to discharge. But this time I started leaving different marks on a new page, which led me to liking that new page better than the original, but then I started a third pattern when I was discharging from the second piece and I liked that even more. This is that third piece. It’s is so not a Robyn color palette (no bright reds or yellow greens) but I think I got a few comments on how people really liked the colors.

Day 31 Symmetry

Here is a little thumbnail of my final piece for #patternjanuary (symmetry), see the full piece on the @littleartbook page. Last week I was so excited to reach the home stretch and welcome February and start working on a list of other projects. Now here i

For this piece I did a technique that I’ve done several times in the past. I use the neocolor II watercolor crayons and color a pattern thick and heavy and then spray down the page and close the book. Leave it for a few minutes and when you return you get something like this.

#patternjanuary day 31 symmetry

Depending on how much you spray and how long you leave it before closing the book and if you spray the blank page as well, or keep it dry, and how long you leave the book closed, will give you different effects.

That’s it! a whole month of pattern making. I had a blast and I’m so thrilled to know I still have it in me to do a month long daily challenge. It felt SO GOOD! I’ll be back in a few with a recap.

Week One

Week Two

Week Three

Week Two #PatternJanuary

It took me until in this second week of #PatternJanuary to realize this was a month long, daily project and that I hadn’t done one of those for several years. I used to do a daily project once or twice a year and have been wanting to do one again for a long time. Anytime I’d see one I’d think about it, but then I would think of all the other things I want to focus on and decide against it. This time the project is in line with my goals and things I want to be working on.

Day 8 Fast.
#patternjanuary

I knew I wanted to make a video, which would illustrate the time it took to do this piece. As I said when I posted it to instagram, it took 2 minutes to make the piece, but it took 4 hours of procrastinating, so how is that for fast?

Littleartbook
And the finished piece.

Day 9 Monoschrome.

Littleartbook

This piece is entirely watercolor. I made it while I was at an all day craft event.

Day 10 Time.

Time is a spot on theme today, as I've been acutely aware of how much time I spend worrying, anticipating, trying to think of ideas, procrastinating and then finally (feeling like I'm last minute-ly) throwing together my daily pattern. #patternjanuary #ti
This piece is a watercolor background with white pastel infinity symbols on top with a bit of pencil shading to make the symbols pop.

Day 11 Geometric.

It's not finished but here is my #patternjanuary for geometric. Lily of the valley, four leaf clover, poppy and chicory. Time for bed! #robayrepatterns #letsmakepatterns #watercolor

I wanted to create a pattern that had a geometric pattern with a contrasting organic pattern. I still want to try adding some more linework patterns to the background geometric shapes.

Day 12 Mug.

Once again, an unfinished pattern for #patternjanuary : mugs. I immediately thought of my McCoy smiley face mug. It was slow at work today so I started "rendering" some of my favorite mugs in Photoshop. Digital illustration is SO not my thing, but I'm pre
In an attempt to possibly finish my daily pattern early in the day, I started working on digitally illustrating a few mugs while it was slow at work. I knew I wanted to paint my vintage McCoy smiley face mug, but then decided to branch out to include other favorite mugs in my collection. The diner mug was an homage to my father who collected diner mugs, so I designed a mug for him, Red Truck Diner. I was really excited that I had the idea and while I was designing it, but now that I type this it makes me so sad to realize that would have been an AMAZING gift to give him in real life… designing a diner mug specifically for him, especially since he was such a hard person to buy gifts for.

Day 13 Jelly.

Littleartbook

This pattern was kind of a bust, and a last minute attempt to get it done, because I have been staying up way too late. My first attempt was to try and make jellyfish with tendrils that were in some sort of pattern, like a Celtic knot. When I was done it just looked like a mess and did not resemble jellyfish or even have a recognizable pattern in the knot. This little art book was what I came up with as a quick alternative to get something done.

Day 14 Dessert

It's been a while since I worked in this #littleartbook. All day I thought about the #patternjanuary theme of dessert, and the same thing kept popping into my head, sprinkles. So I went with it. I thought about self serve ice cream with my best friend and

I LOVE DESSERT! Ice Cream, Hawaiian Snow, Cotton Candy, Cookies, Cake, I can’t think of a sweet I didn’t like. Oh wait, lol, guess I’m not a fan of Chocolate, but you add enough sugar to it and I’ll eat it, for example fudge. When proposed with this pattern theme my mind went wild with the possibilities! I even asked people throughout the day “what’s your favorite dessert?” For some reason the same thing kept popping into my head all day long and that was Sprinkles. At the end of the day I just decided to stop fighting it and went with it.

Week One
