It's quite nice to have a restricted colour palette as you can focus more on the composition and don't have to worry about finding colours that fit together and don't clash! First of all I raked through all of my motifs that I haven't yet used to see if any caught my eye and sparked off some inspiration. I found some motifs from my university projects that I thought would look great in a scattered pattern. All of my designs are fairly simple with only one or two motifs repeated, but less is often more!
I love the Tigerprint competitions and now I have loads of time to design I will definitely be entering more often =)
What do you think?
