Pretty as a Daisy

I have been wanting to work on my Illustrator skills more lately and have finally found the time.
Over the past several months, I have learned a lot in Illustrator with my (school) courses.
I decided I wanted to make something original and pretty.
What better subject than my cute puppy?

I started out with a outline of her face and filled in the features.
I then created my own daisy pattern in another window.
I then copied and pasted that daisy pattern onto my outline.
I applied it to a layer behind the outline.
I then used my eraser tool to get rid of the pattern in places that I did not want it.
I used a light pink for the ears, grey for the nose, and brown for the eyes.
I am very happy with how it turned out!
I think it really captures Bella's personality!

This print will soon be available in my Etsy shop.
