Rug Patterns

Before there was Pinterest, there was cutting out images from magazines.  Well, now for me it's Pinterest plus cutting out images from magazines.  I just can't flip through a magazine or catalog without wanting to save images that I think are beautiful or inspiring in some way.  I think my stacks of pages drive my husband crazy, but I'm learning out to organize them and trying to find new ways of saving them.  Yesterday I was looking through a Restoration Hardware catalog and loved some of the patterns of the rugs.  As a way to control my catalog clipping, I decided to draw some of the patterns instead!  It turned out to be a really fun activity, and I think the patterns look extra bold and eye-catching when just done in black marker.
