The Design Process

Fashionably Chic

A behind-the-scenes-look at

The Design Process:

Turning Art into Wearable Fashion Accessories

It all starts with a Picture, I usually use my own Art to start with, this was using a FREE Royalty-Free Stock Image because I was short on time to make new designs and I loved the colors in it


Then it is Digitally Manipulated into a Circle


then it is Cropped

Copied Several Times, pasting one next to the other

this process is repeated to fill the design space



then they are  Merged into one image and you have your base Pattern

You can adjust the Hue a few times for different shades / colors


Give your Design a Name, the Finished design reminds me of FEATHERS

So you now have your Pattern “Feathered Spheres” in 4 Fashion Colors

Apply the pattern to the Product Template and whalaa… you have just taken Art and several Digital manipulations later, you have created Wearable, Fashion Accessories

The process start to finish is seldom visualized in it’s entirety, it usually takes on a creative life of it’s own

By the time I am finished, it is nothing like the idea I had in the first place

If you are open to the creative process, you come up with awesome results

I did not look at this  background-2090232_1920

The Art sometimes creates itself

I haven’t been on my Blog for a few days, I have been busy working on transferring over my Travel Guides to my main Website at KDArtStudio

I have also been working on new designs for inventory in my online stores

I am pretty pleased with how they have turned out, they will be great additions to my store for Fathers Day coming up in June
