Today's Photoshop background collage of the single sketch made in #ippdailydraw - this is a 45cm repeat but just the first stage. I used Illustrator to Live Trace and imported the sketch to Photoshop.
So far I see this as a potential fabric design, it looks quite Chintzy!!
I carried on... and this is what I ended up with last night.

I can see mistakes in lining up in this close up and the whole thing looks rather confusing but believe it or not I feel I've learned something and considering this whole design is made up of just one sketch I don't think it's a bad result. For a professional job I'd do it very differently!

So there you have it. I might now go right back to the beginning and do something with a coloured background. Then again I may find I have to leave this experiment here.
What do you think so far?
This was the original sketch for those that didn't see it:
