Meditative Sketching

Do you ever find yourself wanting to draw something but feel no inspiration? Sometimes starting with a simple pattern can inspire a “bigger picture”. Last week I pulled up A Little Lime‘s website and settled on this pattern design using the second variation of the StepS pattern to get me started.

I was in a stressful situation at the time and drawing the design helped me to slow down and put my mind on a more peaceful track. My thoughts were focused on prayer and I drew ribbon-like letters to help me remember to always keep prayer woven into all situations in my life.


I colored the design using colored pencils and outlined with a fine point black pen. Even though I have never seen a flower like this before, it was fun to imagine it could exist.
