MAKE BEAUTIFUL ARABESQUE WITH PATTERNS, THANKS TO TUTORIALS BY JOUMANA MEDLEJ

Today we mark these interesting tutorials made ​​by the Lebanese artist Joumana Medlej.
"Arabesque" is a  western word to indicate the Islamic art "zakhrafa", geometric patterns embellished with more organic motifs.
Generally they are used as a complement of Arabic calligraphy, but can easily be used alone and processed in graphic forms very sophisticated and refined.
On Joumana's page at Lulu.com, you can find a book in .pdf format with 20 pages of step-by-step tutorial to create 8 bases of arabesques and various patterns derived from it, by hand or digitally. Here i present some sample page, along with some interesting and elegant Joumana's works.
