Ellen Tile

This one was inspired, and is named after one of my students. She drew the design using a compass. I recreated the design using "Context Free" and then used Paint Shop Pro for the rest.

Today's Gratitude Item: Muscle memory. Very useful for when one decides to crochet after a "break" of several years. Turns out its like riding a bike, you never really forget.

Very very nice. Such soft, pretty colors, and the design as well. Just add a frame, and it's ready for hanging!

As mentioned in the description, I used a program called Context Free Design Grammar which can be downloaded at the preceding link. Once I had the basic design (black and white) I used paint shop pro to put in the background. By setting the transparency of the layer with pattern on it to "soft light" rather than "normal", the transparent / tile effect was achieved.
