Week 2 Adobe Illustrator

January 12, 2012  drawer paper pattern by Karen Thiessen
found drawer paper circa 1970
Curiosity led my Adobe Illustrator learning this week. I worked on two projects: one eventually worked and the other still eludes me. The top image shows my successful interpretation of drawer paper that I found in our old kitchen. The pattern is simple but it took me a few days to figure out how best to create the repeat so that it was evenly spaced. I'm still trying to replicate a standard Japanese pattern. 

My five minutes a day five days a week turned into 5 hours and 25 minutes of Adobe Illustrator play during week 2 = 6.5 H total for 2012.
