TRAINEE SURFACE PATTERN DESIGNER!

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.

I have joined Rachel Taylor‘s ‘Make It In Design’ course, and I’ll be blogging about my progress, ups, and now doubt downs!

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. 🙂
