Birth of my Primitive Paisley Design

This little blurb explains how this paisley mosaic tile design was born.

I drew the single paisley shape on my Samsung Note 2. It allows me to change the background to white, so I did that then sent it to myself.

Working with it in Photoshop, I was able to clean it up a bit with a mask, then add some fibre texture to it. It was a fairly tiny file, so I needed to overlap itself a few times, randomly, then layer 2 of the random placements over each other, turn one, use blending layers to alter the lightness and darkness, pick a colour and voila! I then proceeded to mirror it a few times to create this lovely mosaic. I then added some gradient stripes, in complimentary colours.

My Redbubble Shop offers several great products and clothing items featuring the finished design!
