Ive mentioned in an earlier post that I like repetition. Tesselations are repeated patterns like tiles on the floors of peoples homes.
The original tesselation in the above image actually comes from an old Mosque. I scanned the black lines from a book and then added my own colours.
Its like colouring in. I find this fun, choosing colours that are pleasing. This particular design exists as fridge magnets in my home.
There are oodles of variations to play with, just a matter of coming up with a colour scheme.
