Geometric Designs

Just a quick post to share some of the geometric designs I created last week using the iPad, Adobe Line and the Ink & Slide.  As I've mentioned in previous posts, I love these tools and this new way of working!

These first two designs were primarily hand-drawn using the stylus.  I used the ruler to map out the blocks, then drew and colored the designs freehand.  I really like the organic look of these lines.

These bottom two relied heavily on the drafting tools-- rulers and shape templates.  I've just started exploring these precision tools, and they are definitely a lot of fun.  It looks similar to designs that I might create in Illustrator, but I was able to do it right there on my iPad.

Having only worked on a desktop for the last few years, I appreciate the freedom that comes designing on a mobile device.  I've mainly been using it while on the sofa or the front porch, but I'm taking a quick trip to Texas to see family this week and am happy to be taking my iPad along!  I'll be back next week with a look at my next fabric collection, Star Landing.  Follow me on Instagram or Facebook for sneak peeks!
