My mom wanted curtains in a pattern similar to a cloth napkin she liked, so we collaborated on this design. I showed her how to paint brushy patterns with india ink on paper, then we cut out the flower shapes. I scanned and colored them in Photoshop, using colors she picked out from the Spoonflower color map. After that, I imported them into Illustrator to make the repeating pattern.
Now mom can have the curtains she wanted, and remember the fun time we had making this project every time she looks out her kitchen window.
