After 6 months of procrastination, self depreciation and future tripping, I joined a course in Surface Pattern Design.
Before clicking ‘pay now’, I read Marie Forleo’s ‘Everything is figureoutable’ from cover to cover. It gave me the kick up the arse I needed to follow my dreams. Every time I get the ‘I’m not good enough, I can’t do this’ jitters, I remind myself that EVERYTHING IS FIGUREOUTABLE.
Plus keeping myself accountable!
Here is my first go at pattern making.
I drew the motif in paper and then in procreate. Then I created the pattern in Photoshop.
The scratchy textures were created with a dry paintbrush and poster paint (literally out of my 7 years old’s art box), scanned and added into Photoshop. I experimented with blending modes until I found something I liked. 🙂
