Zazzling Pattern Designs on My Zazzle!

I have figured out a way to use my Picasa photo-editing software to make patterns! Take a look at these, dear reader: Here's one my designs, called Wild Flower. It started out as a simple sketch-like figure, shown here on a notecard:

Then I cropped the flower into a square, made 12 copies, put it all together in a photocollage, played with the background a bit, and voila - it's now my Wild Flower Pattern. It's shown here on a mousepad:

The whole reason for doing this - the initial inspiration - was to make a patterned shoe, to enter into Zazzle's current Shoe Design contest. Wish me luck!
.

I even put the pattern on a skateboard! It's nice having the big file sizes that the photocollage gives you, to fill up big surfaces like skateboards.

Thanks for looking - but that's not all. You should click the next link and see the necktie I made with this pattern! I just love the way the yellow and purple colors seem to swirl along the necktie. I wonder, is there a man out there brave enough to wear it? And is he single? ;)
