Inspiring pattern

A few weeks ago I bought this black-white ceramic bowl , I just loved the patte rn, especially the  sunny spirals in the middle. Helga has a brilliant challenge up, to find a favorite pattern, copy it and make some art . Painted the background with the sunny spirals. Love the inverted blue, which turns the sunny background into a starry night. The Frida ghost looks fun as well. 🙂 Messed up the bottom part with some black permanent marker stains. So had to cover it up with some paper and used an acrylic paper scrap stamped with diamonds. Thought I’d share this fun exercise with the Wednesday Stampers since the Summer Tea Party is still going on. Of course can you also stamp you favorite patterns.


Vor ein paar Wochen hab ich diese schwarz-weiße Keramikschüssel gekauft, ma g total das Muster, besonders die Sonnenspirale. Helga hat wieder eine klasse Herausforderung die uns auffordert, ein Lieblingsmuster zu finden, es zu kopieren und etwas damit zu kreieren .  Hab Sonnenspiralen gemalt. Mag mal wieder total die umgekehrte digitale Variante, die aus dem Sonnenhimmel einen Nachthimmel mit Sternen macht. Und gleich noch die Geister-Frida dazu, weil’s Spass macht. 🙂 Leider hab ich mit dem Permaschreiber auf dem unteren Teil dann ein paar Kleckser drauf gemacht und somit hab ich den Teil mit Rauten-bestempeltem Acrylpapier überklebt. Da die  Sommer Teeparty bei den MS noch im Gange ist, zeig ich diese schöne Übung auch dort. Natürlich kannst Du auch Dein Lieblingsmuster stempeln.

  16. I certainly can’t see any mistakes, sometimes when things happen like smudges or spots it gives a chance to go somewhere you didn’t know you were going and your piece looks marvelous, such great color and movement! I find that there is inspiration everywhere. Today the white fluffy clouds looked so beautiful I wanted to stop and snap a picture, it would make such a nice background!!
