A Crab Pattern



Another pattern design for you. I forgot all about pattern design last month until the 29th. But, once I remembered, I went straight to my crab sketch. One of you commented that you knew I’d turn it into something. Well with your encouragement I have. 🙂

I painted the backgrounds separately in watercolor. And put everything together in Photoshop. With the spring weather here, summer can’t be far behind!

  1. Yay! These crabs rock! Love this pattern, Eileen! 😍

  2. Beautiful, it makes me look forward to summer and beach time! 🙂

  3. I find individual crabs (loners) somewhat off-putting and intimidating (unless served on a plate that is), but in a large, crabby dance like you’ve made up, there’s no end of charm!

  4. Delightful pattern, definite beach feel here. Nicely done!
