The summer months are a great time to incorporate some outdoor flair into designs. The smell of freshly cut lawns, blooming flowers, and chirping crickets often inspire us to go earthy in our art projects. So whether you feel the need for green grass, blue skies, or bright flowers, add a touch of this outdoor season to your projects.
Flower Textures, Patterns and Brushes
Flower designs can be used to add a touch of romance to a postcard or web design. They also work well for a feminine design or simply to add a touch of delicate or fun beauty to a project. The following are a few flower patterns and textures that you can use for a grunge look, playful look, or even just for adding florals to an illustration.
