“Shattered” Coloring Pattern

 

Shuttered Coloring Pattern

This coloring pattern is the epitome of the Geomegic method, simple yet, fun, versatile, and more importantly easy so anyone can do it! It looks good colored with just 2 or 3 colors. It started as a simple doodle on quad graph paper. So the idea of this pattern, in fact, the entire series of patterns that came out of the original doodle, is very simple. Following the lines of the grid,  first draw a simple shape, a square, a triangle, or a hexagon. Next, draw another shape around it and finally connect adjacent corners to make a final element. And then you repeat the same process over and over until the entire page is filled with the pattern. You can also do mandala style patterns, just check the Triangle Grid Version 2 (Triangle) below.

Square Grid Version

Here is how to draw a square grid version of this pattern step by step. Nested squares can be drawn on Square or Rhombic Grid pages. You can also use regular quad graph paper or bullet journal (bujo) page. Here are a few designs and color combos I came up with.

Tip: Try drawing 3 or even 4 nested squares, see what happens!
