Five striking patterns, four separate designs, inspired by art reminiscent of Africa.
The three images below illustrate all five patterns, firstly on a wall, then on clothing.
The colours in these illustrations are those in which they appear in Create-A-Style.
I have also uploaded some images which show a few re-colours.

The patterns are, from left to right, Abstract, Love Africa, Fruit Baskets, Protea (small) and Protea (large)

Abstract
I was inspired to create this pattern by an African headscarf. The pattern elements are of my own choosing.

Love Africa
I took a rather uninspiring mosaic pattern, removed much of it to be left with the border pattern, and then inserted silhouette designs that conjure up images of African wildlife

Protea (small)
The Protea cynaroides (King Protea) is one of the National Emblems of South Africa. One was placed in my room when I visited a few years ago, and I have loved these plants ever since.
