About This Class


Learn how to turn your sketches or artwork into beautiful wrapping paper!

In this class, I'll show you how to:

  • scan your artwork or work from a photo of your work
  • dive into Adobe Illustrator to digitize your work
  • play with color options inside Illustrator
  • create a repeat pattern
  • save your file in the correct format for printing, and
  • upload it to a printing service for wrapping paper - or other products!

Once you learn these basic skills, you can turn your artwork into a variety of products from greeting cards, mugs and notebooks to t-shirts, pillows and home goods.

Jump in with me and let's get started!

Very detail explanation really worthy, thanks
I have been wanting to turn my hand drawings to vector art for awhile. Anne makes it so easy to understand. I was using a crazy old version of illustrator and Anne was fast to respond via email will all my questions...and I had several! She is so supportive and I'm so thankful I found her class on here, you will be so glad you took this. Great intro to illustrator and pattern making!

Be Brave. Be You.

I found Anne’s teaching to be easy to follow and I learned a lot about surface designing from her. She is highly motivated to teach the technical aspects of this art. She helped me when I got stuck and stayed with me until she was sure “I got it”. I want to take more of her classes.

Hi everyone!

I'm Anne and it's nice to meet you!

After a long career in the corporate world, I got laid off! Instead of seeing that as a disaster, I decided it was a sign that it was finally time for ME. I dusted off all of my old art supplies and a new career in illustration and pattern design emerged! 

I love to create pretty patterns and floral illustrations are my jam!  Sharing my tips and techniques with students here on Skillshare ...
