A few years ago I designed some fabric prints for no other reason but pure fun. I started designing by making some large dots in the Photoshop, then I printed the dots out on paper and cut the paper to strips, then glued the strips back together in no particular order. Finally I scanned this glued up picture back in the computer and played with it some more in the Photoshop.
The result was chopped up dot pattern with a handmade feel that I liked a lot. I dug this design up again this June, when I was making some digital prints in
A Few weeks ago I came to my native Nordic homeland. One day, when rummaging around the attic, I found a suitcase with my childhood clothes. There was also a dress with big white dots.
When I looked at it more closely I got a little shock as the pattern was very similar to what I had designed: chopped up strips of dots! I swear I had not seen this baby-dress for a very long time and I did not remember the pattern at all!
