Wow, has it been that long already?

There's tons of stuff I probably ought to be working on in terms of sorting folders and stuff, but for now here's a picture of a mandala cake that I drew:…


Of course I can't figure out how to embed images in a post, (probably a super group thing).

Still, thanks to everyone for contributing and being awesome!  :D

Group Info

Welcome! :)

There are lots of wonderful groups out there featuring different kinds of decoration, well here is a group for all kinds!

We accept pretty much all sorts of patterns: Ancient, Medieval, Victorian, all sorts of cultural and ethnic traditions, spirals, geometry, acanthus leaves, whether for stonecarving, woodcarving, leatherworking, architectural details, jewelry....just for a few examples.

What is ornament/ornamentation?

For the purpose of this group, ornament is decorative art, such as spirals, zentangling, knotwork, or geometries, as opposed to representative art such as a landscape painting, (although I would accept it if it had a decorative border for example).

Some patterns can be too simple, to be considered ornamentation for the purposes of this group, like if its just a row of identical dots or parallel lines, although mostly that shouldn't be a problem.

Submissions will be accepted or rejected based largely on whether or not they fulfill the definition of ornamentation for the purpose of this group.

Please don't feel bad if I decline your submissions, just because it doesn't fit the purpose of this group doesn't mean it isn't really good art!

Calligraphy mostly doesn't count even if the letters are pretty unless it has additional decoration, or if the letters have decoration on them.

Mosaics and stained glass do count unless they are merely representational or abstract in a non ornamentational way.

Submission limit 5 per day.

Don't post anything obsene or otherwise innapropriate.

You can submit to Featured or to the particular folder for the category closest to your artwork. I hope to be adding more folders for categories as they are needed.
