19 colour Pencil Damask patterns




Look familiar
?

These are coloured versions of that damask pattern that I drew
& then scanned and made a pattern out of.
(The tutorial is here - showing how you can create your
own original pattern, if you'd like to try it out.)

I re-coloured the original black & white pattern
to share a selection with you.



Here's a close-up, so you can
see if you like the pattern:


(The damask element is hand-drawn so it has "imperfections"...
9 TURQUOISE pencil damask by mel stampz 2550 pxl sq
... but the element is repeated by computer, so it has some
symmetry. Hope you can use them!)

For best quality
please download the JPEGs from flickr
or the PDFs from acrobat (that are linked on the flickr pages)


Those are 300 DPI
If you want the 72 DPI that is only for
online use (not printing) please use the blogger versions.





They are sized to 2500 pixels square, so you can easily turn
one into a Photoshop brush, if you like.

You can turn them into patterns that will fill
about 8.5" square in PS or gimp (how to here).

Or you could simply print them out as digital patterned
paper. They should print about 8.5 inches square
(if you print the PDF or print in Photoshop using
the "scale to fit media" setting with a standard printer.)
& will fit on a standard sheet of cardstock.

Colours will depend on your printer or computer monitor, of course.

Feel free to re-colour & rework them for personal use
or for making hand-made items to sell.
There's a tutorial here showing
how to lighten & re-colour in Photoshop


Please, no re-sale
of the digital file or variations.
If you'd like to make a variation using these patterns
& share it for free, go right ahead!
Please tell people where you found it & I always appreciate a link :0)

I JUST found your blog by sheer accident. I've been madly looking for a rolled flower template because the ones I draw are not consistant. That being said, I love your blog! You're doing really interesting things I haven't seen before and I will sure be back! Beautiful damask!

Nancy S said...

Hokey Smokes! You drew this by hand? Way to go, girl!! You must be a whiz at zentangles.

Wow! I don't know how much time it took you to do all of these colors, it took long enough to download them all. Of course I had to have all of them. Thank you so much. I also appreciate how you walked us through saving them. I did it fine but would not have with out your instructions. Thank you for your generosity.
