Nothing is perfect

This weekend I have been working really hard to further develop one of my original designs. I was not happy with it because I felt it did not compliment the rest of my fabric collection and so I have gone back to Photoshop to continue playing around to create something more successful.
Below are images of a variety of colour ways that I experimented with.

This is the final idea that I think I will be using a final. I am going to do some test digital prints to make sure that the colours and design compliment those in my other finals to make sure I have the best collection of designs I can.
