Project #16: Create My Own “Damask Print” (Adobe Illustrator CS5)

Hello! This week I am working on a blog banner for the lovely Heather Tiger. One of the things she likes is Damask Print so, I decided to try making my own so that I can include it in her banner.

I used this image as a guideline:

& this is my creation:

Damask Print is much easier to create than I thought it would be however, it requires a lot of patience. I used the Pen Tool and copied & pasted the designs to the opposite side using the “Reflection” function to save time and make it more symetrical. 

After this project, I have a new appreciation for Damask Print!!
