Love and Marriage

I participated in my first Tigerprint Competition "Love and Marriage".

It was really thrilling because one of my design was picked into the 30 short list! the end I didn't win, but I learn a lot: many of my on-line pattern course classmates wished me good luck and I could feel their strong support :)

Here are my entries, the first one was the selected for the short list.

I believe there's always something more to know, something to search for...
So here I am enjoying studying once again.

This time is a super e-course about PATTERNS! (here for more info).
I had a very busy weekend, with lots of things to explore!

I'll post some of my sketches, feedbacks will be very welcome, like always :)

I've got my sketch notebook and my pens...ready to start this new adventure!
