Scanning things. Creating new patterns.






Hi, great you to visit me! lots of thanks. Welcome to my creative site.





I told you about my creative process based on ink hand sketching, scanning, and tracing using my mouse pad in a last post. I am not fast tracing, as my floral icons are detailed.Therefore, I wanted to make some proofs using a new creative process for me, which allowed me to be more productive and faster. 

So, I looked for things all over my house, which I thought they could be nice once they were scanned and vectorized automatically. I scanned necklaces, earrings, decorative objects, tree leaves,etc.


I scanned and vectorised  one of my beaded bracelet, and I liked the circular shape vector I got. 

 Of course; most of the things after vectorizing them didn´t suggest anything to me. I didn´t find them appealing, but surprisingly a few of them made nice shapes which inspired to me. After making some changes to them, I decided to use them as main icons for some of my patterns. I have been working with them lately.




I scanned the back of a pendant and I used only half of the traced image to make these trees.  

 I know I have a lot to learn about scanning and vectorising using the trace settings options properly, but at least I have started to experiment with a new way of working, creating different icons to the ones I usually draw.


                                                       These are some of the other vectors I got.

I will transform them and I will see if they led me to create some patterns.The first one looks like lace, and the second as an African icon. Do they suggest something to you?  

I am going to print these new patterns on fabric swatches in order to see the result. 
I am sure after studying tutorials and practising, I will be able to create better and faster patterns than the ones shown here.
Have fun with your scanner, sure you will make nice vector images!
