At the beginning of 2018, I started the daily painting challenge with Lisa Congdon on Creative Bug. I figured it would be perfect since this year I want to focus on surface pattern design and really building a portfolio of strong designs.

DAY ONE: Gingham


DAY TWO: Basketweave

Basketweave Painted Pattern by Dawn Walker Design


DAY THREE: Scallop


I should mention that during this time I was waiting for my son to be born…made it to Day Five and that’s when he made his appearance! Afterwards I did the patterns I could with whatever was at hand; markers usually. All in all it was super fun and really stretched me. Great to do as a warm up, to get you working without thinking too much about it which I tend to do!
