May is generally the month I associate with flowers - April showers bring May flowers and all that! These little blooms are loosely based on the tulip using a limited colour palette. Below is a screenshot of the pattern in progress in Illustrator, where I create most of my repeating patterns. I also created a much larger colour palette than I ended up using. I tend to get carried away with colour options and am working hard to use limited colour palettes to challenge myself a little.
