You wouldn't think they'd develop so fully...

I drew some leaf and floral shapes in a grey marker as I wanted to make a delicate repeat. 

You can see where I drew ideas for alternative flower motifs but decided against them - I cross them out so I don't get confused after I've scanned it in and I start to work digitally.
I thought the final design (shown in half drop repeat below) looked good to use as a background for some more bold motifs to sit on top...

And here it is - I gave it a subtle green ground and used it for the background for this cute little woodland creatures design

So designs can start out as something very simple.
You wouldn't think they'd develop so fully to become a design that could work alone or as part of something more complex
