I fell in love with this image by jamelah e. – titled the scroll. She writes great reminiscences about her photos and I implore you to read this one – you won’t be disappointed. I knew it would also make a great palette and the range of colours in this image made it hard to narrow it down to 5 – I do love the final result.
In keeping with my handwritten theme that revealed itself this week I thought I would create two ‘handwritten’ patterns. The top one (below) called Persuasion, is one of my favourite passages from Jane Austen’s Persuasion that I blogged about here a while ago. The font I used is also called Jane Austen from daFont and I turned the passage into an SVG image. The bottom pattern is called Dream. I like them singularly but putting them together doesn’t really do either of them justice. My template for Persuasion, which I called Jane Austen has already been a hit on ColourLovers, with a lot of variations that are much lovelier than mine.
