About This Class

Did you know that you can create a repeat pattern on the iPad?! Did you also know that you don't need 75 apps to do it? Using only the Procreate app, this class will show you the entire process from utilizing layers while drawing you pattern elements to finishing your pattern, testing it, scaling it and even seeing what it looks like on 3D mockups! 

In this class, you'll walk through:


  • Easy-to-create patterns (even without being an artist!)
  • Adding texture
  • Utilizing multiple brushes
  • Scaling your artwork size


  • Creating custom color palettes
  • Working with color balance
  • Selecting a limited color palette for added interest
  • Working with a color threshold
  • Recolor Tool


  • Working in layers
  • Using clipping masks
  • Cutting selections for new layers
  • Copying selections in new layers

I walk you through my workflow from start to finish and by the end of the class, you'll have a lovely repeat pattern to put on fabric, apparel, stationery, you name it!
