Punk project challenge (week two, since I have effectively overslept the previous one) is to make a project using my favorite colors. And for me nothing represents my favorite color – blue – than the beautiful Mediterranean doors, deep blue on perfectly white walls. So today I made a big pattern using three images of such doors.
The pattern, as usual, is completely free to download (look for the link below the image).
