I designed a new pattern (above) based on the image to the left – taken in a beautiful; church in France. I loved the previous pattern, however i feel like stain glass is more predominately inspiring for pattern design, and likely will produce a more relate-able image , that is stereotypical of church buildings and architecture.
I created this pattern using multiple layers, splitting the pattern into layers by grouping aspects of the image. As this was going to be used as a repeat print , the layers all had to match up, and end on the page where the new page of pattern would start. To do this i placed a rectangle as my guide and locked the layer, simultaneously grouping each separate layer to the rectangle .
