Wrapped Rose Tangle PATTERN and VIDEO

My patterns have definitely been heavy on the rose theme over the past year, with Crumpled Roses, String Rose and now Wrapped Rose. 
Wrapped Rose reminds me a bit of the folk art roses I used to paint back in the early 90's. Good times.
I'm not sure if I consider Wrapped Rose more of a drawing technique than a pattern as I believe patterns should be able to continue in all directions infinitely which, in theory I suppose this could, though I don't know how it'd look. Regardless, it's fun and I became a bit obsessed with playing with the possibilities over the past week...until I wasn't hahaha.

2017 was a difficult one for our family. During the final push to complete my studies (being a bit of a perfectionist, I put a lot of added pressure on myself to do well), my beautiful mother passed away as I was working on my final projects, then my brother-in-law died a few short weeks later.

So rather than force it, I took a break spending time around the farm, gardening, and teaching myself a few new programs that I can use for my creative endeavours. I always enjoy learning new stuff and have found myself creating more both conventionally and digitally of late and I'm loving it.

First up this year, I have a Daisies Make Me Cross pattern video for you. You can see the original pattern step-out post here.
