Design Elements Own Design or Copy?

As there is nobody around me, I can ask face to face i am gonna to aks you here.

The question is, what is own design based on elementary design elements and what is to close to existing beadwork?

Looking through Sioux Quill and Beadwork Design page 68, 69, 73,74, 77, 84 show design elements which can be combined and altered to yield a bead pattern.

For example teepees and lightnings for belts or stripes.
I am very fond of all blue colors, red, yellow.

1 and 2 are identical patterns with color variation. I have more of that pattern in yet more color variations. 1 and 2 are modeled after the basic sketch for the lightning pattern of the above book.

For counting rows and columns I use excel and the technical quality of the examples could be better.

This one uses a teepee which in itself is a often used pattern. The green and blue tome are the grass and the sky.

Do you regard such pattern as a copy or can you except, that so using a basic element although using out of the book that the design itself has come to my mind?

I am still searching how to imagienate (dream of) a design which is really mine and me and remember it, when awaking. That is something which I lost too long ago as a little boy.

I am on a quest about pattern for my gun case (flint lock), shooting bag, ball and belt pouches and mocassins though the unbeaded version seems better as an casual everyday wear. For mocs, I think I am on the right path to add a second (harder) sole which can be replaced when worn out.
