And voilà. You made a pattern. Don’t worry about it being perfect. I find the imperfections make the pattern more interesting to look at. You can also use decorative paper punches to make a stencil to trace around. Just like the ones I have done below.

    Yes, you inspire me too – the simplicity and the colour are deceptive. Not that easy to accomplish. I too might try making some patterns with paint. I wondered if the marbling could be done on fabric – but I think there are all sorts of other products that do that sort of thing.

      I’m sure I read somewhere how to do a marbling effect on fabric. Can’t remember where I saw it but I’m almost certain its possible.
