This may have been the easiest challenge the folks at Spoonflower have issued in this series. I constantly use Gimp in my patterns and artwork. (It's free and works just as well as high priced image programs out there.) I also used a cute little online drawing tool, Scribbler Too, for good measure :)
Like most of my designs, it was sketched out and photographed before making it's way onto my computer. Then I opened the file as an underdrawing in Scribbler Too. After drawing the flower motif on there, I downloaded it back onto my computer for final work in Gimp.
