From “Art Deco Textiles: The French Designers”

Floral and Geometric All-Over by Anonymous (1930)

Valses de France by Margirier & Bermond (1943)

Chiffon Scarf by Marguerite Pangon (1925)

Forest Full of Birds by Michael Dubost (1925-1930)

This project was a lot of work, but I feel like I learned a lot about patterns and how repeats work. In addition, I did not realize how outdated colors could be or how timeless other colors could be. I painted this since I thought that cutting paper would be too difficult. While painting was challenging, I think it ended up pretty good in the end. I also found it interesting how different patterns can look with different colors. If I could do this again, I would have chosen a pattern that did not include gray.
