Today I experimented with creating a half-drop repeat pattern in a camellia print. I made two variations of the camellia motif as I didn't want my pattern to repeat the exact same motif. I did this through using the offset tool and then filling the centre of my image with the second camellia. The only variation between the two flowers is that the flowers and leaves are in different directions. I also played around with filters in order to give my camellia a grainy effect.
