About This Class

In this class, I’ll show you a method for creating intricate, editable repeat patterns in Procreate.

Using this method you’ll be able to:

  • Organize all pattern elements correctly from start to finish
  • Easily create a seamless repeat pattern even for complex designs
  • Make adjustments as you go, because you’ll be working with an editable pattern swatch
  • Recolor your final pattern swatch

You will also see:

  • My detailed process of creating an intricate floral pattern in Procreate from start to finish
  • What brushes I use and how to make simple adjustments to Procreate brushes
  • The way I organize my layers depending on the result I want to achieve
  • How I draw, add color and build texture & what other methods you can try out

This class is beginner-friendly, but I’m sure it will benefit anyone who is currently making patterns in Procreate but isn’t happy with the technique they’re using.

1. Hey There: As you know, every design program, whether its Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator or Procreate, has its pros and cons. For me, the biggest disadvantage when it comes to making patterns in Procreate was not being able to see the big picture and how it's going to turn out, and also not being able to make adjustments and edits as I go. But behold, I figured out a method that works like a charm when it comes to creating even complex patterns in Procreate, and that is exactly what I'm going to show you in this class. By the way, I'm Meena, even though everyone knows me as [inaudible]. I'm an artist, illustrator and pattern designer. In the first part of this class, we will create a solid base for our pattern through planning, testing, and refining until we create our first pattern swatch. In the second part, we will dive into drawing and texturing techniques until we create our final pattern swatch. Most importantly, that final swatch will be editable so we can add some last edits and also we will be able to recolor it, which is a wonderful option to have. This is a beginner friendly class, but it will benefit anyone who's currently making patterns in Procreate but isn't happy with the technique they're using, like I wasn't. By the end of this class, you will have one finished pattern that you can add to your portfolio, and what's even better, you will have a method for creating as many patterns as you like, exclusively in Procreate. If you're ready, let's jump right into it. 2. Project: The assignment for this project is very easy. You'll be creating a pattern made out of plans that are branching out, curling, and fitting with each other like a puzzle. If you have some other ideas that are not to plan-based, so to say, just go for it. My only recommendation is to start with more simple sketches until you get the feel of this technique and then you can start bringing more and more complex ideas to life. So when you're ready in the project and resources section of this class, click on your Project to share what you've made and tell us a bit about your process and results. The best part to making a class is seeing your projects and being able to give you feedback and connect with you. 3. The Basics: All right, welcome to Procreate. You can see here that I've prepared the initial sketch for this pattern so that we can dive into more important things rather than spend a lot of time on just pure sketching. But let's start by opening our custom Canvas. To create your own custom Canvas, just click on this plus icon here, and then click on this little plus icon here. Now you can add your size and DPI. I like making my patterns in the size of 3,000 by 3,000 pixels, and with a DPI of 300. You can go lower, 2,000 by 2,000 pixels and 300 DPI is just fine. It's not too small, not too big, but I prefer to create my designs in a slightly bigger size than I need, so in case I need to print this on a larger scale, I will still be able to do that without losing the quality of the work. On the other hand, I can always downsize this if I need. So let's just click Create, and I will just go back, so I can rename this. I will now just go to my sketch, and when I open the layers, you can see that my sketch is merged in one layer. If your sketch is made in multiple layers, for example, like this, basically what you can do to merge it is to just pinch these three layers with fingers. You can see now that we merged this into one layer, or you can do that one by one by clicking here and then clicking Merge Down, and you will get the same effect. Okay, let me delete this and bring my sketch back. You can now see that my sketch is selected and I will go back and just swipe with three fingers and click Copy, and I will go back to Gallery, and go to my new Canvas, and again swipe with three fingers and paste. Now my sketch is selected and to deselect it, all I need to do is press this arrow here. So our main goal is to create an intricate floral pattern. So I decided to go with flower branches that are curling and spreading out, but still fitting with each other like a puzzle. This is a very simple design that can become very complex and rich pattern at the end. Now you can also see that I've sketched mostly in the center, even though I went towards the left and right edges, but I left more negative space on the top and here on the bottom, and at the places where I got too close to the edge, like for example here or here, I basically stopped drawing and left these branches unfinished, and that is totally fine, because we have to keep in mind that we still need to incorporate another element that is going to connect with these two plants, and that we will also finish all these things in the next steps. Another thing that might be useful is that for sketching these branches, I use the Calligraphy Brush. Let me turn this off and open a new layer, and let's go to Brush Library, Calligraphy, and this is the brush that I use. It's called Script, and you can see that it makes very, very smooth lines, and I find that it's very nice to draw plants that are branching out by using these types of brushes. So in comparison, if you choose Sketching here in the Library and use the 6B pencil, which is my favorite pencil, you will see that it's not the same. This pencil is not that smooth because it's naturally following my hand movement, and the reason for that is very simple. So if we go to Brush Settings, let's click on 6B pencil once more and we will enter the Settings, and here we have stroke path, and you can see here that Stream Line is set to None when it comes to 6B pencil. If you go to Calligraphy and click on Script, you will see that Stream Line is set to 57 percent. So the bigger the Stream Line is, the smoother your line will be. In case none of the brushes with this ability are working for you for sketching or making the final drawing later, it's good to know that you can always adjust your brushes. So for example, if you want to work with the 6B pencil, let's go to Sketching, you can just duplicate it, just swipe left and click Duplicate, and now we can make adjustments on the new brush that we created and not on the original one. So let's click on it, and let's set Stream Line to somewhere around 54, and here we can test it out and you can see how the lines are more smooth now. All you need to do is click Done, and that's it, you also have a 6B pencil that you can use for drawing your branches. I will just delete this and bring my sketch back, and I think we're ready to get into making the first draft for our pattern. 4. Pattern Draft 1: It's time to make our first pattern draft and basically complete this sketch. I will now open Layers and I will open a New Layer that I'm going to place underneath my sketch. I want to fill this with color, and it can be white. The color really doesn't matter at this point. Now click on that layer and click Fill Layer, and now we can see that it's filled with white. This is going to serve only as a background for this sketch. Now what I want to do is select them both. One is selected and I will just swipe right to select another one and I will group them. I will duplicate this group three times. So you can see now we have four groups, and before I start, I want to bring my drawing guides. So go to Settings and turn on the Drawing Guide, and let's edit them. Now what I need is basically this canvas to be separated into four squares, and I'm going to do that by having just one grid that is horizontal and one that is vertical. So here in Grid Size, click on it, and since my canvas is 3,000 by 3,000 pixels, I need the half of it so I will place 1,500 pixels. Let's click Done and that's exactly what I need. So let's click Done again. Let me turn off the visibility for three groups and I will just leave one and I will select it. I will zoom this out a bit, and I will use this arrow or Selection tool. Now in the Settings below, just make sure that Magnetics is on. That is going to help you a bit when moving this element correctly. So now I will just drag it and I want to place it in one of these smaller squares. So I'm not scaling it, I'm just dragging it. I need these edges to be placed exactly on the grid. This can be a bit tricky in Procreate because it doesn't have the option to snap this on the grid. So even though this seems to be placed correctly, I'm 100 percent sure it's not. So we need to zoom in until the end. To do that without losing my selection is, I'm going to hold this arrow with one finger and then I'm going to zoom in. This will just zoom in the canvas and it's not going to transform my selection. So let's zoom in until the end and you can see how much this is off. So let's drag again until we place it correctly on the grid. This is perfect. Now I can deselect it. So the only disadvantage with this technique is that you have to zoom in basically until the end and make sure that you're positioning everything correctly on the grid. But on the other hand, if you spend two three minutes doing this, you will make the rest of the pattern-making process much easier and that is the only way to have an editable pattern swatch in Procreate. So now I will just do the same thing for the other three groups. Now we have the first part of our pattern and you can see how all this negative space came together and we have the space for drawing another element and connecting it with everything. But before we move to the next step, let's just make some order in Layers. So we have groups now and we can just expand them. What I want to do is delete these backgrounds that are not useful anymore. So I'm going to select one and then I'm just going to swipe right to select the rest. Now I can just delete them all at once. Now we're left with the sketches that are in groups. So I'm just going to select one by one and drag them out of the group. Now I can also delete the groups. That's it. We're now just left with sketches and I can just pinch them to merge them all together. Before we proceed to the next part of making a pattern draft, I want to show you just one more thing that can be very useful at this phase and also later when you create the final pattern. So if you're not completely sure that you positioned everything correctly, or maybe you accidentally moved something without noticing, you can always test it out before moving forward. That is the safest thing to do, and it's very quick. So we can do this on another canvas or in this one, and since I'm going to do this in this canvas, I just want to duplicate my sketch and then I will just lock one of it and turn it off. I'm doing this just for the safety so that I don't accidentally lose it. Again, we are going to create another layer and we'll place it underneath, and we will fill it with color. Let's group these two, and again, let's duplicate this group three times. I will select one group and click on the Selection tool. So this time we're not dragging this, we're going to make it smaller. So make sure that in the Settings Magnetics is on, and Uniform is on, and let's just downsize it. You can see that it's easier now because Procreate is going to snap it on 50 percent and it's going to snap it perfectly on the grid. So let's do the same thing for the rest. Let's just turn off the guide so that we can see what's happening, and when I look at it like this, it looks perfectly, everything is on place. Also when I zoom in everything is positioned correctly. So this first pattern draft is on point. I will just delete the groups and this test, and I will bring back my sketch and unlock it. We are ready for the next part. 5. Pattern Draft 2: Now we can start editing and sketching to complete this pattern draft. The best part of making a pattern like this in Procreate is that now you can erase and edit everything except the touching points on the edges that are basically the pillars of our pattern. When I look at this sketch, this is something that definitely bothers me very much. The endings of these two branches are just too close to each other. I'll just grab an eraser and I will delete this one to make more space for drawing. It looks much better. Now let's make two new layers. One will be for making flowers and the other one for greenery. You can rename them if you want. Sometimes I'm just a bit lazy to rename everything. I will start with the base that is going to be here in the center and then I will branch it out to fit with the rest of the sketch. I will complete these branches that I left unfinished. For sketching, I will be using this calligraphy script pen that I showed you. I'll speed this up and I'll catch with you a bit later to show you what I have done. This sketch is finished, and I'm completely happy with how it turned out. It's not perfect and it doesn't have to be because it's a sketch. I'll probably add and refine things while I'm making the final drawing. But all I'm looking at now is the structure and how everything fits together. If you're not sure if you like your pattern sketch at this point, or you're not sure how it's going to look when the pattern repeats. You can always test it out in the same way as we did before, and you can make some changes afterwards. I will now just go ahead and merge these two layers. Click here Merge Down. The other thing is that I don't want to merge these two layers. I want to have them on separate layers because of the way I'm going to draw later. Anyways our pattern draft is prepared so before we move on to making everything look beautiful, we need to prepare our two main sketches for drawing on top of them. One of them is right here. Let's go back to gallery. I will swipe left to duplicate this canvas and I will duplicate it three times. I'm saving this one to be my backup just in case. This one will stay the same, but we can rename it to be pattern drawing 2. On the next one we will make some reordering of elements so that we can bring back our initial sketch, but with all the edits we've made on it. Let's rename this to pattern drawing 1. If you haven't made any edits, which is something that basically never happens to me you can also use your first sketch, but since I raised one part of the plan added some leaves and made some changes. I need to make my final drawing on this new version. I will just start by lowering the opacity on the last sketch that I've made, this one that is central. I'm doing that just so I don't get confused while I'm drawing later. Let's do the same thing as we did before, create a new layer, place it underneath, and let's fill it with color. Now we can group this. Again as before, I will duplicate this three times. I will now just bring my guides. These are the same guides as we had before. Again, we're going to do the same thing as before when making our pattern draft. We're just going to drag these so they fit in smaller squares. Make sure magnetics and uniform is on. Hold the arrow. Let's zoom in until the end. Now we can position it correctly. Again, I will do the same thing for the rest of them. I almost forgot to finish everything. You can just merge or flatten the layers. The best way to do that when you have groups is just click here and click Flatten and do the same thing for each group. Now I can merge everything. What's happening with the additional backgrounds that I've made doesn't matter at this point because I'm not going to edit this sketch anymore. That's it guys, we have our initial sketch, but with all the changes we've made. I just want to say that this process might seem like a lot of back and forth, but it's definitely worth it, especially when it comes to more complex patterns, because you don't want to spend a lot of time on drawing and texturing just to find out that a pattern doesn't work when you repeat it, or it doesn't have a good structure and it doesn't look good. I always find that putting a bit of extra time in building a solid base helps me out to be more relaxed and enjoy when I'm drawing and playing with textures and colors. That's, it's all the preparation is finished and we are ready to start drawing. 6. Drawing: This is my favorite part of making a pattern. I can now stop planning and testing and just enjoy using different brushes and later add interesting textures and play with color combinations. I will follow this sketch and draw on top of it, but I will also refine it and make some changes as I go. The point is not to make everything look exactly the same, but to make it better. I have the sketch on one layer, and I will now just bring the opacity down so later I can see where I'm drawing. I will also open three new layers. The bottom one will be for flowers and I will now rename them. I won't be lazy, because later I will create more additional layers and it's better that I don't get confused. This one is for flowers, this one will be for stems, and this one for leaves. I will also create a new custom palette. To do that I will go to colors, select palettes, and click on this plus icon here. You can see it appeared here and it's set to be default. Now when I go to the classic view, it will be here. What I'm going to do is to continue using the same two colors that I used for my sketch. It doesn't mean that these are my final colors. I do like them, but I will also see later if I can make some changes because we will have the possibility to adjust our colors later. We don't have to be the final colors at this moment. I will just select it here in the history and then click here and it will appear in my palette. Do the same thing for the other one, and that's it. I have them both saved. The reason for that is because also when I finish this drawing, I will go to the other canvas that we prepared for finishing another drawing, and there I need to use the same colors. Saving them in a custom palette is a very useful thing. Regarding the brushes, I will be using this bardot gouache set that I've purchased. I will leave you the link to it in the project description. These are not brushes native to Procreate, but it's not really necessary to have them because you can also achieve some similar effects by using brushes that are native to Procreate. For all the drawing that I'll be doing in this video, I will use this texture detail brush. Let me show you, that soft almost charcoal texture to it. Also it can make it thinner and add some more details to my drawings. I really like this brush. It has these two abilities that I really love to use. Another thing is that also it makes very smooth lines, because in the settings the streamline is set to 19 percent or something like that. Again, you can basically achieve something similar with the native Procreate brushes. In this case you can for example use the brush that we adjusted. This 6-B pencil that we changed in the settings, and also you can make again, very nice textured lines. When you tilt it, you can also get that charcoal texture, or you can maybe try out this old pastel or artist crayons for adding texture. All in all, choosing the brushes is always up to you and the style you want to create. Before I speed up this drawing process, let me show you a few tricks that I will be using for drawing and filling the shapes so that I can prepare them for the next layer of texture that I'm adding later. Also let me turn on these guides before we continue. I completely forgot to do that. We do not need them at all at this stage. I will just switch the color and when he comes to brush as I said, I will be using only this wash textured detail brush. When it comes to stems, I will basically draw them with wider lines like this. Then when I finish doing that, I will make my brush a bit smaller, and then in some places I will add more thinner lies to get that structure and to fill some parts of it. When it comes to leaves, I'll basically outline them. Then I will go in and fill it in with some texture, but I want that texture to be more transparent. Then with more thin lines, I will create the structure and add more texture to it. By the way, the way I'm filming this, my hand is in a very strange position, and it's a bit hard to draw very precisely and to also have the control of the pressure and the tilt of the pencil. That is why this might look a bit strange. As you can see, everything won't be filled completely. I want some white to show through because I wanted to achieve that natural scratchy texture. Again, I will do something very similar with the flowers. As you can see, I will basically just combine this transparent texture with more thin lines that are adding texture. Also another useful thing to know is that I will always use the eraser in the same style as my brush. To quickly match the style of the eraser to the current brush you're using you can just click on the eraser and just hold it, and it will switch. You will see that if I'm using the eraser in the same style, everything will be cohesive and it will look the same. All in all, this is the way in which I will be drawing this pattern. It's a bit more time consuming way of filling the elements, but I find it to be the way that produces the best results for me if I'm going for that natural textured look instead of a more simplified look. Of course, there are some other options that you can use. It all depends on the style you want to achieve. Here are some ideas. Option 1, you can now draw solid shapes and add texture later. You can use any ink brush or maybe this calligraphy brush that I use for sketching. Just draw a solid shape, close it in, and drag and drop the color. You can see that while I'm dropping the color and if I'm still holding it, on the upper part you will see this color drop threshold. Basically it will show the amount of color you're adding. If you go completely to the left, it will be lower, and if we go to 100 percent, it will basically fill the whole layer, so we need to bring it down a bit. Option 2, you can create a shape like this with a solid brush, and then make the edge look textured by drawing the outline with some texture brush. Let me just grab this gouache brush and then I can just go in and add the texture on the edges. Also you can do the same thing but in reverse. Let's make the outline with the texture brush, close it in, and then let's drop the color. The only problem is when you zoom in, you will have a bit of a difference here in between your texture and your solid fill inside. What you can do is just go in here and fill it a bit so it looks even. Option 3, and you can also make your shapes with the selection tool. When I select it here, you can see in the settings that I have freehand on. Let's just draw a shape, and I will close it in here. Now we can also drop the color if we want it to be solid, or you can grab some brush that has texture, and then you can just freely add the texture without worrying about the edges. To finish, just click again on the selection tool. All in all, there are a lot of options to use. You can go with one or combine them. It really depends on your style, what you want to achieve. I will now clear this up and start drawing. I'll make the base drawing for this sketch using the method that I've shown you and I will also do the same thing for the other sketch that I've prepared. I'll speed this up and I will see you in a bit. [MUSIC] 7. Textures and Details: We're back. As you saw in the previous video, I finished two drawings for two sketches that we prepared. This is the second one and when I bring back my sketch, you can see some changes that I made while drawing. Nothing drastic but still bit refined and changed, and also the leaves are more defined and nicely drawn. All in all, as you can see my sketch was basically my placeholder and I spend much more time on drawing and filling everything with a first layer of texture, and here is how the first drawing looks. The only mistake I made is drawing these flowers and they belong on the other drawing. I can just go ahead and delete that. Let's add more texture and some final details. There are two easy ways in which you can add the additional texture on your drawing. One is by using an alpha lock. Just go to the layer you want to work with and with two fingers swipe it right. You will see this chess board appear as the background, and that means that your alpha lock is on. Now whatever you are drawing will stay on that layer or let's say on the boundaries of your drawing as you can see here. The only problem with this is that your changes will be permanent because you're working on the same layer so you cannot change or delete this later. Let me just undo this, and to turn off the alpha lock again swipe right with two fingers. The second option that I always use is a clipping mask. Just open a new layer that is going to be above the main layer I want to work with. Click here and select, Clipping Mask, and you will see this little arrow up here and again, we will get the same effect as we did with the alpha lock. But this time we will be drawing on a separate layer. The reason why I love using a clipping mask and not the alpha lock is because whatever I'm drawing is in a separate layer, which means that I can change it, I can delete it, and it's not going to disturb my main layer. Now, let me show you the textures that I've planned to add to my drawing and how I will do that. When it comes to stems and leaves, I want to make them a bit darker and creates some depth. I'm not going for a drastic change, I just want to define them and make them stand out a bit. To do that, I will use a gray color in combination with a blending mode. I will go to colors and pick a medium gray, which is here in the middle and I will add it to my palette so that I can have it saved for later. To pick a blending mode go to Layers, and in this clipping mask layer I will click On and select Color Burn. Now, when it comes to brushes I will use this dry round brush to get that dry texture and if you're working with native brushes to procreate, you can go to the painting section and find some dry brushes here. I'll just pick this one and let's see how it looks. This might be a bit too dark for me. In this layer, I will just bring the opacity down and this looks great. At this point I'm really just letting myself play with what looks visually good to me. In the same way, I will add the texture for the leaves. Let's make another clipping mask layer and also let's set the Blending Mode to Color Burn and I also want to match the opacity. Let's see what do we have here. It's 51 percent, so I will do the same thing for the leaves. Let's try this texture. The reason why I haven't merged the stems and leaves in one layer and why I'm not adding the texture to both of them at the same time is because of the direction that each one is going, and I want to have that separate so that I can follow that direction with this texture. When it comes to flowers, I'll do something a bit different because I want to make them more prominent. Let me just open another layer that is going to be a clipping mask for the flowers and in this case, I will use a red color but that is less saturated than the one I have. I will go add it to the color palette, so that you can use it later. For adding texture to the flowers, I will use this gross wash brush. You can see a very nice texture that it adds. With this brush I can achieve that loose, a layered texture for the flowers. If you're using brushes that are native to procreate, there is some brush, it is very similar. You can find it in a painting section and it's called the spectra, or you can try out this watercolor brush to get a similar effect. Basically, I will finish everything with adding some details on the flower. For that, I will again create another layer. Select "Clipping Mask" and with the white color I will create some dots and for this I'm going to use the same brushes I did before. This squash textured detail. I'll bring just the opacity and that's it. These are all the basics and tricks that I'll be using for adding my final textures and details. I'll speed this up a bit and then we'll be ready to create our final better. 8. Final Pattern: You guys, this is my favorite part. Everything is ready. We've planned, sketched and tested, which means that this is going to look great. I basically cannot wait to see it in repeat. Let's create that final pattern. Just as before, I will go back and I will duplicate these two drawings so that I can save them as a backup. I will start making my pattern in this one, so I can rename it Final Pattern. First of all, in the layers, I will delete this sketch. I do not need it anymore. I will just merge the textures with the main layers. Just click here and merge down. You can see now I'm left with three separate layers, and I'm not going to merge them together. The reason for that is because I wanted to have an editable patterns swatch. Just as we did before while making a pattern draft, I'll create a new layer, and I will place it underneath everything, and I will fill it again with white color. Go to Fill Layer. Now I can group everything, and again, I will duplicate this group three times. Again, we have four groups. I will press this arrow here, transform tool. Let me just zoom out a bit, and I forgot, I also need to bring my drawing guides. Let's select one with this transform tool and just drag it. Again, just hold the arrow and zoom in. You need to zoom in completely until the end and position it correctly, and I will do the same thing with all three groups that I have left. In the same way as before, we've created the first part of our patterns watch, but this time it's for the final pattern. First, I will turn off these guides. I do not need them anymore. In the layers, I'll open these groups, and I will select these backgrounds that I used to drag my groups and I will just delete them because I do not need them anymore. Now I will put all the layers in one group, and I'll put leaves next leaves, stems next to stems, and flowers next to flowers. Now, I can merge leaves together in one layer, and I will do the same thing for stems and flowers. Now I can delete these groups. Again, I'm left with the same three layers that I had before, and the only reason for doing this is to have an editable patterns swatch. In case I want to either erase some leaves or move them, I can do that on this layer without disturbing the drawing and texture that I made on the layer for stems. Everything is ready and we can bring the other drawing. Let's go to gallery. Here I will do the same thing as before. I will delete these sketches, and I will merge the textures to the main layers. Again, I will be left with these three layers. I want to select them all and basically just grab them with my finger and drag them. I'm holding them with one finger and I will go to gallery. I'll do that with the other finger. I will click on the Final Pattern Canvas and I will just drop them. This is the only way in which you can copy more than one layer into another canvas. Let's go to layers to see if I inserted them correctly. That's me. I mean, if procreate, place them correctly and you can see it's not. I need to just move these flowers to be at the bottom and this to be in the middle. It looks great. I can see a few edits I need to make, and that is why having a possibility of making final added some patterns swatching procreate is so crucial, especially when I'm making these patterns that are more complex in their organization. Even if you plan beforehand as we did, there will always be just a few things in the end that need to be changed. Even though this might seem like time consuming way of doing patterns and procreate, I promise you it's really worth it and it has so many benefits. Once you make one pattern using this method, it will just become a routine. Now I will make the final edits. As you can see for example, this leaf and this flower are not positioned correctly. I will just go to the layer with leaves, and I will use this selection tool and just draw the selection around it, and then I will use transform tool to just move it a bit. I will do the same thing for this flower or anything that needs to be moved. Here I will add more leaves, and here as well I think. Here I think I need to make these leaves a bit bigger. Again, since I left them all on the same layer as you can see, I can just select that layer, I can erase whatever I want to erase, and then I can just create a new leaf without disturbing the stems. Stay with me. I will speed this up and in the next video, I'll show you how to recolor your pattern swatch. 9. Recoloring: All the final edits are done. As you could see, all the additional leaves that I've created are on a separate layer and the textures are on the layer above, which is a clipping mass. Once I'm done, I can just merge them. I'm very happy with how everything looks, and we can now just play with colors. I will go back to gallery, and I will again duplicate this Canvas to save it for later and I can rename this one to be recoloring. For this recoloring process, we need to merge some layers again. I want to place leaves next to leaves, and I want to do the same thing for the stems later. Once I have that, I can merge all the leaves together, and I can do the same thing for stems and also for flowers. Also make sure that everything is positioned correctly, so my flowers are at the bottom, stems are in the middle, and on top I have leafs. The main thing is to see what you want to recolor together. So if I want to recolor stems differently than leaves, I would leave them like this, and if I want to recolor all the greenery in the same way, I will just merge them together. We can start with this greenery and in the adjustments, I will just select "Hue, Saturation, and Brightness". There are some other options that you can use, but I mostly use this one to adjust my colors. Down here, you can see all these options that you can play with and here you can adjust the hue. You can see that we're adding a bit of blue now, and then we can play with the saturation, and also with the brightness. In case you want to see how the original color looked like, you can just press anywhere with your finger on the screen and just hold it, and it will snap to the original color. If you want to undo what you've done, you can just click anywhere and click "Reset". I could basically spend hours doing this, and believe me, after this video, I will do that. But let's make some quick color adjustments. I will maybe make my leaves a bit more blue, and let's do the same thing for the flowers. Just select the layer, go to "Adjustments" and select "Hue, Saturation, and Brightness." I think I might bring this down a bit so that I can make it more purple and maybe I can bring up the saturation so it's more vibrant. Let's go to the background. For the background, I could go with the dark background, I think it looks very nice or maybe I can do some very light pink background. Okay. Let's leave it the light for now, and I can test out the dark one later. Let's finally see how it looks and repeat. I will save this as a JPEG file. I will go to "Actions", "Share", and then select JPEG. I will just save this image, and now I will add it to this Canvas. Just go to "Add", and then "Insert Photo". Let's just place it on top and duplicate it four times or three more times. Now we can just select one by one and then transform it, and I will just snap it to 50 percent, and I will do the same thing for each of them. Now is the time to simply take a few moments to congratulate yourself and admire what you created. I'll basically do a little happy dance and throw sound imaginary confetti, and then I'll do some more color adjusting to see what I can come up with, and I'll post that in my project for this box. 10.
