I started out with something very simple, a paisley. Slowly, I added more and more until it had morphed into a beautiful border. I have seen similar borders but haven’t really made any of my own. Well, today over lunch I decided to dive in and create something unique to me.
As you can tell from this picture, I just felt like one single border was just too plain for the full tile. So I not only added one on each side, but then I felt like a simple checkered pattern in the background worked nicely. I used .05 pigment liner for the main pattern, then I used a .005 pigment liner for the background. Using a smaller pen gave it the dimension I was looking for.
Have you ever seen this pattern and would you ever use it as a border? Let me know in the comments below!
