"Maybe the past is like an anchor holding us back. Maybe, you have to let go of who you were to become who you will be." ~ Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City
Pheww! Finished at last. Adding a pattern to the background of a simple graphic proved to be a lot more work than I anticipated. I haven't quite mastered the art of reducing without waste. Let's not use the word impatient — I prefer eager. However, to combat the problem I try to sort the waste into color groups that I can use again. For instance I removed traces of the anchor from anything I had to cut off to eliminate as much distortion as I could. When the "waves" are blended together they make a really pretty blue I can incorporate into another design down the road. To see the total progression - check out my Facebook page.
