Noticing, something we all do some times. I don’t know about you but I find that I walk through life not always conscious of all the grandeur of patterns around me. Nature gives us a glorious resource full of sparkly eye candy and we just pass it by. Even more than smelling the roses, it’s a hyper awareness that I try to develop so that the patterns pop out and imprint and come back to life in different ways. To play with this idea I started with this snippet from a journal page. A tag with the word notice and a small bit of magazine photo with flowers; some patterns shown on the edges.

This exercise has given me a basis for looking at patterns differently, making marks in different ways and taking off in a whole new direction.
What patterns do you like and why, what do you do to make patterns? Share it in your comments.
