Again and again

I've been walking over these two little leaves that are stuck on my street for about a week. I've just left them there because they seem determined to stay together and they create a mirror image which makes me pause and appreciate every time.

Today there was a great tutorial on Design*Sponge by the amazingly talented Julia Rothman about how to make a repeat pattern which is something I once learned in design school. I just placed together illustrations I already had from our cards with the new leaf drawing. It is so much fun to make these because you don't really know how it's going to turn out until you put it back together. What I'd really love is a whole afternoon to myself just to play with patterns. c.
