Have you tried making repeat patterns on your iPad, and gotten stuck with a blank line in your pattern? I know I have! Stick with me, and learn a simple technique to fix that problem. You’ll have a seamless repeat pattern to add to just about anything! 

I’m Katie, owner, and designer at Perch Handmade. I’ll walk you through the process of making a repeat pattern in Procreate that is simple and easy to figure out. It was a game-changer for me. When you're finished you will be able to apply your pattern to fabric, cell phone covers, bags, apparel… you name it!

Here’s what you’ll need for this class :

  • Your iPad, the Procreate app, and your Apple pencil. 
  • I’ll also be using the Everything Watercolour for Procreate Brushes from Abbie Uproot on Design Cuts, but you can choose your favorite brushes. 
    • {These are affiliate links that I will be paid for, but I would not promote them if I didn't believe in them wholeheartedly, so check them out!}
  • Some basic knowledge of Procreate
  • A Society6 and/or Spoonflower account.

I’ll teach you how to make a pattern that you can then change, so you have multiple colorways. Then be able to upload them to Society6 or Spoonflower to purchase your artwork. You’ll only need to know the basics of Procreate to take this easy class, but that's it… it’s really easy!

Let me help take the frustration out of repeat patterns!

Transcripts

1. Intro: Hi, welcome, I'm Katie from proton made. Today I'm going to teach you how to make a simple repeat pattern using the new tools in Procreate. We'll use the save and load action to flip our repeat patterns around and make them work for us and they'll snap together with the snap and then the MSc tools. You'll use your Apple pencil and your iPad Pro. Some resources that I've downloaded for you guys to use. The everything watercolor procreate pack from Abby uproot. I'm designed cuts. It's a great watercolor brush path that does amazing watercolors. I'll also show you how to upload them to Spoonflower and Society 6 so that you can add your repeat pattern onto cell phone covers, wallpaper, fabric, you name it, you can add it onto just about anything. Don't get to use that hashtag creating with IHM for protein made. And I can find the one social media and tag me on Instagram or Facebook, whichever you choose. Let's get started together. 2. Downloads: So the first thing that we're going to need to get started with today is to download our perch handmade color palette and the perch handmade full repeat pattern. I've added them to the project section. And it's really easy. Follow me. First, we'll do the sprint botanicals. It will go to our download section. When we click on the download, you can then use the share button and share it directly to procreate. And then you'll have it in there for later on. Same with the full pattern repeat. You'll hit the Download button this time. It is going to send it directly into Procreate. You don't have to hit the share button. So here's aspirin botanicals, and then here is the repeat. You'll also find Pinterest, Unsplash, and Color Hunt, and where they go into that in the next lesson. Let's stick with me. 3. Inspiration: Now that you've downloaded your sprint botanicals color palette and your perch handmade full repeat pattern. You're ready to find your inspiration. I love using Pinterest for just that. There are so much to choose from. I've linked that at the bottom of our projects sections. So you'd have your Pinterest, your Unsplash, which I'll tell you about, and color, which we'll use a little bit later. I love that you can find these sweet individual prints to find just the right shape. And when you're ready, you can take a screenshot of that by hitting the home button and your power button, you would go. And we can save that for later. I also really love these deconstructed florals. They're really fabulous because then you can see the exact shapes. Because sometimes we don't feel like I'm much of an artist. And so having those really helps me find the shapes that I need to use to get the right look for my flowers. And another grapes BOD is Unsplash. Unsplash has a lot of free usable images. And if you just type in flowers, you're going to find so many to choose from. I love these purple, lavender and getting those shapes are really easy. All you have to do is hit Download. You only need a small one, so it does not take up too much space. And you can copy the attribute text and save your photo later on in send it directly to procreate for using later, which is really helpful. Another great way to do flowers, because it's springtime is getting outside. Take your camera with you when he on a walk and just grab pictures here and there. That's a really great way to get exactly what you wanted. And you can use it just the way you want to because it's your own picture. The next lesson we'll go over is finding the right brush to use for your repeat pattern. I can't wait to show you what I love. All right. See you then. 4. Finding Brushes: When it comes to finding the right brush for Procreate, there are so many options to choose from. Procreate already has so many different options. But today I want to use a special watercolor brush that I love. It's called the everything watercolor brushes for Procreate. And you can find that on design cups, which is a really great website for finding everything you need for graphics, scrapbooking, affinity designer, procreate, you name it. They even have some freebies. So that's how I've gotten a lot of money. It's really great, but these everything watercolors for Procreate are just more than you can even imagine. They look like true watercolors. But digital, Abby has done a spectacular job making it just perfect. I mean, can you look at that? Can you believe it? That is a digital watercolor, but it looks so real. So I'm going to use those for today. And you can use exactly the ones that you want to use. These are a little bit spend a year, but completely worth it. Design pets makes it really simple for downloading. You just add it to your cart, feel purchasing it. And then it will go straight to your downloads file. I'm not going to download today because I already own ads. It will open right up in Procreate though. Let me show you what I have for mine. Look at all of these brushes, so many, many to choose from. And now it's $20, but it's something like 62 brushes and they are all incredible, really worth it. One of the first things I like to do when I'm working on a project is pick out a few brushes that I know what I'm going to use all the time. I really love the sketch brush. So I am going to copy this, duplicate it, and I'm going to add it to a new library. So everything or spring book botanicals that way I know which project I used those four. So let's go back down to the everything watercolors. I'm going to hold this so I can move it. And then I'm going to click on the spring wire colors. And there we go. Another favorite that I like is that inky wash brush. Inky Velvet is another really great one. We will use. Dark edge will lead or not. Here it is. One more that I really like is the blooming. See. Now we can use, because there are so many brushes to use in everything in watercolor. And it gets a little overwhelming sometimes. So by adding them into, choosing a few and adding them into your own file makes it so much easier. So you're not scrolling through everything. Next lesson we're going to be talking about color and when to download and how to download. So let's go. 5. Your Color Palette: Choosing the right color palette for today's lesson couldn't be simpler. I've linked the Color website in your projects section and you can find more inspiration on Pinterest as well. Color him is really great because there are so many different limited color palettes, which is kind of fun to stick with a few, just want to use a few colors. The best way that I've found is just downloading the image and sending it directly to procreate. And then I can use that later on. I also have a great color palette selection on Pinterest that I'm continually adding two, it's really easy to find great colors. Again, screenshotted, send it to procreate. And I'll show you the next step because you can also pull all the colors from your photo. So we've downloaded the spring botanicals color palette from earlier, and it's really easy to set this up. I have sent over the color palette so you can download it directly into your file. You can also create your own color palettes. So we're going to call create a new pallet, spring botanicals. And then we can just cold and drop me, hold and drop. If you find some botanicals that you really love and you can go into those photos and you can drag and drop from anywhere. It's really one of the easiest ways to get color into your palettes. If you need to, you can hold on to warn and reset the color as well. These are all my color palettes. I loved to keep on really organized. Again here, some of those simple Color Hunt color palettes. I love to need them also, I know where to find them later on. Next, I'm going to show that how to set up your canvas and be all set to go for design. 6. Canvas Setup: Now I know you've downloaded the perch handmade full repeat master copy, but I want to show you just how easy it is to set this canvas up for yourself. Let's begin. First, we're going to hit the select new canvas and Alice do a 10 inch square, and I always have it at 300 DPI. We're going to pick a color to fill my canvas because I need to fill to begin with, I'm going to make sure my snapping and magnetics are turned on. I'm going to bring it up to the corner and it snaps to a perfect section. We show you that one more time. It just snaps right into place and write at 5000 by 5000 megapixels. Now, I'm going to hold this layer with two fingers. And it brings up the selection tool. And I'm going to click save and load and add that as number one. Okay, Now we're going to fill again and I'm going to use the magnetics tool, slide it to the next position. My layer save and hold, good selection tool. And it's so simple. Fill that layer, will it down, save a whole. Always want to make sure your magnetics are turned all the way up. So your magnetic should be at the maps because then it will snap into place so simply. So this one says 1499. I want to make sure that I get that right at 1500. Because if it's not, it won't be even repeat that, even hold and add that for selection for. So now I'm going to fill that background. I'm going to choose a different color for my background, something that's a little more neutral. It's kind of like this one. Just a little bit at bringing, but not too much. Great for spring. I'm going to add a layer above it and group those layers. And now we can continue adding to those layers. We always want to keep the base layer inside that grew. Another thing they love to do is to keep track of what sections my layers are in for later on. So I'm going to do a quick fill and snack on load to know where we're at. So this is one we're going to rename that we are one. That way. I know later on where those layers are. I always do my patterns the same order. That way. I always know what I'm doing. So let's rename that to three. For another great thing to do is to just know which way is up because that will come in handy later on. So and chemical group all those together, rename that as save and load. That way I know which sections those are later on, it will definitely come in handy. We're going to save this project as your master copy for your full repeat. Swipe to the left and duplicate. Always duplicate that one. I'm so you'll have it for later on. Never work on the master copy that goes, then you'll have to do this again. But hey, I just taught you how to do it, so it's really easy. And the next segment, I'm going to show you how to use contrast and those photos you took for sketching out your design. 7. Reference & Sketching: Let's get started with today's class. This is the fun part. We're going to sketch out our design and use Pinterest and Unsplash and those photos that you took for our inspiration. Let's get into Pinterest first. I love to just screenshot them to make it easier for bringing into our document. Psi swiping and love that one because I love the little designs. They're also really loved this one. The color in this one is cool rate. I can also go to Unsplash and pick up those photos here. And those are easy because you can just hit download and send it right into Procreate. I also took a few photos when I was out on my walk. Actually this or in my backyard. I love these little mini daffodils and I can send this directly into Procreate as well, or I can upload them later. Spring is just about here. So yay. I think we all need it a year into COVID. So now I'm going to open up my document. It's going to import those photos that we took and I can save them for later. I'm going to swipe and duplicate because remember we always want to duplicate. I like to just rename mine, let's say spring botanicals. And remember we have those layers for the save and load. I'm going to turn those off right now and add one layer above and rename that my sketch layer. So let's start with the sketch pencil. We're going to start uploading some of those Pinterest boards just to use as inspiration. We cannot copy them, but we can take their shape and really look at that. I like to upload them as a different layer just because it uses less battery than some of the other options that you have. So let's insert a photo. And I'm going to insert this one. And I'm going to crop it because we don't need all of that space there. I'm going to insert another one. I really like these daffodils. But again, we don't really need all that extra space. And these are all on different layers once they're inserted. So we can move those to where you need them. And I'm going to do one more. Probably, I really loved these blue flowers. For me. Flowers are tricky. So sometimes I like to just copy my own photos and go over the lines. Because hey, we're all learning. I'm learning, you're learning, we're doing this together. It's a lot of fun. So next I'm going to bring those all down into one layer. And I'm going to bring the opacity down because I just kinda want those in the background. Let's get that sketch layer and start kind of going over some of the things that you want to add. And I really loved these stem pieces. That's one of my favorite things to do. So I'm just going to I can't copy them verbatim, but I can just go over them with the sketch. Okay, I can just kinda figure out how it looks. This one's got more berries coming off there. Actually more of a little teardrop shape. Remember, you're going to be going over these later on, so the sketch doesn't have to be perfect and you can change it up later once you get into your repeat pattern. But it's really nice to have a foundation to begin with. These are all fun shapes that you can work with and add to. I mean, honestly, you can just keep going forever in these sketches. So there's one, I'm going to scooch that one over. Kinda just put it over in the corner here. And then I'm going to go and to these mini daffodils, they really have some great shapes. And their leaves cone I go up, kind of have that rounded top. And again, this is one that I took so I can just kind of go over it because it is my own artwork. I can't stress it enough that we do not want to copy anybody's photos because that is their work. You're not as competent. Sometimes take your own pictures and you can do what you want, all of that. So these are all shapes that you can use later. I'm going to go over these and trace them for a little bit. Have fun working on your project. You're sketching. And we'll go from there. The repeat pattern, you don't need too many designs before you start making your pattern. I might add a few more, the berries. All right, I think I've got enough sketches that I can pull those together and really start working on a pattern, I can move those around. So the next lesson, we're going to go over actually painting in using those watercolor brushes that we saved. So stick with me and we'll move on to the painting part. 8. Painting with the Everything Watercolour : Here comes the fun part. We get to put color on our page and start working with our pattern. So we're going to open up those pressures that we have. And for the stems and love to use this inky wash brush. And I'm going to pick one of our green colors. I'm going to probably start with this green first and make sure we go to our pattern layers. I am going to add, put them onto multiply. Since we are working with water colors really lay nicely together when it's multiplied. But I do want to bring the opacity down for all of these. Now it's not getting in our way when we're working and move them around later on. If I need to add more later, we'll make sure I'm on Pattern Layer 1. You want to work in the pattern layers. Are these inky wash brushes are great. You can zoom in, you can kinda fun. They're really just an organic shape. Do that nice variation there with the color, kinda go through and add the colors and change them up a tiny bit. We are working with them, so we have some good variation. And I'm working all on one layer so that when I pull them together later, I blend them really nicely. Next, I'm going to do that beautiful yellow, and I'm going to use the UK bell for a full hour. Petals themselves. When you're working with real watercolors, they bleed into each other. And I'm going to show you that trick for making that happen. Whether that color, It's so great, I love these brushes. So one thing I can do is I'm going to select it with the slip tool and automatic. And then I'm going to invert it because I want to just work on this layer in blending in a little bit more color, but I don't want to go over the outline edge. Yeah, that's a great way to do it. I'm going to go back to the inky velvet brush. And I picked up a little bit of a different color. I'm going to bring it down a little bit and add in some variation and to these leaves will go onto them out and we'll little bit, but it's nice to add extra color into your drawing so they really look lifelike. Another really great fun one to do is that blooming. See if I can do this on the edges. Such a great tool for really giving it that look of a water color. Now I'm going to have that dark edge leader and I like to blend with this one. So if you hold on to the blend tool, it will start using that brush. And you bring that down a little bit. And I'm just going to tap through here and blend out some of those colors, especially right here. This is my favorite one and sometimes I'll bring the opacity down so it's not as not as strong I could go on. Sometimes it will pull over the light and the Jews, and they don't want God is March. That helps it to look like it's a watercolor blend. So it's really just finding that shape that you really like, the colors that you really like, and how it look like a real watercolor. Now I'm going to blend in those yellows as well because it really is a great way to help your watercolors learning. I love that water down blended look by keeping our galaxy layer, the Alps that blend really nicely. Why man? And a few minute ago, so I'm going to work on the rest of these and pulling in the color, always add them to a different layer. I might have to change it up a little bit because these are taking a little bit longer to do each drawing. But that's okay to its current, will see how we go as we get through it. So you can kind of go off and do your own thing. No, not watch every one and I draw the variation you get when you start layering these together as well. It really changes the colors nicely. And it does the hard work for you. The blending with the incubator and all your colors when you change them out will be saved in your history. If you don't want to add them into more color file. I have to go directly on top of your sketch. You can shake things up and move it around a little bit. All right, so now I've got 1, 2, 3, 4 designs. Decision is do I keep going or do it replicate and duplicate and go through? Maybe I'll do this one. We're just daffodil. New layer. I think that's all I'm going to do. Skip doing the other ones. So for the purpose of this round, just duplicate. So Warren P of these designs. Now I can start moving around the page again around shaping where our pattern. And it's up to you to switch around a bit, especially with the patterns. Once we start really moving them around on the page, we want the pattern to work so it's very seamless so you don't see where the edges are. 01 room spots. When you're duplicating, it's best to duplicate the bottom one because that is your original. And then the other duplicates go on the next layers up. By doing that, you're always doing the most perfect copy. And as long as we get these as close to the edges possible, we can maneuver them a little bit more. Later on. I was having this snapping and magnetics on helps to get it to that edge without going over. If we zoom in, it's all the way to the edge but not completely flipped. All right, I think for now I'm ready to go into the next layer and the next section. So when we get into the next section, this is one I'm using the save and load and we'll flip things around and repeat some of our patterns. 9. Save & Load: Okay, For the next lesson, I'm going to show you how to use that save and load that we set up earlier. And it's really simple. So first we're gonna go in. And I remember I showed you how to add that arrow in. I'm going to add that in now on a new layer. Just so we have, It's really helpful later on to have it for seeing where we need to be. So by having this, it helps us to know later on that when we have to flip our whole image around and it will get flipped. So let's see how we do that. First, I'm going to bring the opacity down on all of these because I don't need them up very high and it doesn't matter how low we have it, but I do want to see our layers, so we can see our Layers under there. The numbers are still there. If you zoom in, you can see where they are. The arrow is still there. Sometimes this gets a little tricky. Sometimes it works. Great, even if we have all of these open. So we'll see what happens. Because sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. But when it doesn't, that's the reason I have the set 2 there, certain numbers 1234, so we can correlate them later. So we are going to have her image. I'm also real quick, I'm going to duplicate this and collapse it down and bring it up. And above are safe and we'll load that way. We have all of those image set. So we can reuse that will later on when we wouldn't need to fill out our pattern. But let's get to that, saving them apart, okay, so first, let's see if it'll work. Save and whoa, nope. So it says I want to open the layers. So that's where these come in handy. So I'm going to click on the number one and that's going to show our first section. I will hit save and load. I'll hit the selection tool and hit save and load, and then hit Selection 1. Now I have to do the little extra step and go back to our Layers. Click on Layer Group C. You can still see it's selected. Now I can go to the move tool and I'm going to flip horizontal. Flip vertical. And then we'll turn that one off so that one's flipped. I'm going to go to layer two. I'm going to do the same thing. Hit Selection Tool, hit save and load, and hit selection. Then I'm going to go back to my group, hit the toolbar and hit flip horizontal, flip vertical. See how it's flipping it upside down from where it was before layer 3, same thing. Last layer, layer for saving mode selection for go back to our group. Tools. Horizontal, flip vertical. So it is flipped. Everything that pushed it out to the edges. So it's exactly perfect here that matches up on this side. Same from the top to the bottom are actually the bottom to the top, but you can see your pattern flipped. Now we have this extra space, and that's where I'm going to come in here, turn off the save and load for now. And I'm going to start adding in some of the pieces that we used before. So there they are. I like to open them up and start taking them out one by one to see what I don't want to use, I am going to delete the background because I don't need it in this section. So this first pattern there, I'm going to hit the Move tool and I can move it anywhere else in this pattern. Let's see where I might want this one. And this is where it gets fun and tricky. And I know earlier I might have mentioned maybe not distorting them too much, but it's okay just a little bit to bring them down. And that way they're not quite the same as before. And I hit the warp tool and then smash that, I get every single angle in here. How it's not quite the same as last 11 of these will all get moved around a little bit. I am going to move this guy here. So let's find them down here, very ends. And I'm gonna move it over here. Okay, distorted a little bit. Girly, want it to look a little different. I'm gonna go back to these top ones and I'm going to add the highest. It can then move that up here. I'm going to make this one's, whoops. Well, a little bit smaller. That's where I can move this one. I'd like to move everything. I just don't want to shift anything on that is connected to the edge now. But anything that's in the center that is not connected can be moved around. So let's find this one here and tell that a shape there is going to move it over a little bit. Which another layer, Let's go back and find this one up here. Still have it turned on, so that should be easy to find. Yeah. All right. Well, let's see what else we can add and move it up. And even that make this one a little bit bigger and again a distorted so we don't want it to look quite the same and rotate it so I can get it up into this area. I'm also going to warp it a tiny bit because the Advanced Mesh, that's my favorite way to use it. And these are just little movements to get it working for you the way you want it to go. But it distorts it just enough so it doesn't look exactly the same as elsewhere in there. And it's all about just kind of fiddle aim to see how I want things to go, where I want them to be placed. You can really spend so much time doing this. We turn magnetics off right now. They don't need that one. I'm trying to rotate it and it makes it a little bit harder. And to kind of sit back. And once you get your pattern on there, then you can see where things need to go. But I think I need one more of these little yellow guys that are straight up and down. So when we go to the top, find one, see where that guy is, right? Let's move this one. Now we have a pattern. I'm going to move those pieces that I have checked. You're going to maybe I'm gonna just kinda swipe them all to the left. I don't oops, don't need to group them per se, but I just want to dress. Let's slide them all to the left and then dry them mentioned this pattern group. And then I'm going to turn everything else off just to make sure that's named pattern group. So it doesn't get lost later on. Try to like where this is going. So what I'm gonna do, the easiest way to do this is my Tools hit Copy Canvas. I'm going to add a new layer and I'm going to paste that canvas. I'm going to duplicate it four times. I always go from the bottom one to duplicate because that is the most original. Now this part I want to make sure the snapping tool is turned on and the magnetics, because we want to snap them into place. We also want to make sure everything else is turned off. It doesn't want to snap directly to that 1500 mark one other. Boxes are open underneath these. So now I'm going to start with that top one. And let's see what happens. We wanna make sure we can see all four corners. I'm going to take from this corner and slide it and it will snap right to that 1500 mark. This is where our magic is happening. We're going to snap the next one. Snap three. And now it's a knack for what you have, is your full repeat patterns snapped into place. Now I might want to move these around a little bit more because there's so much of a line happening. And if he go back, you can move those around even more, merge them all together. I'm going to turn that off. I'm gonna go back to my pattern grew and open that up. And the other thing you can do is go back and save and load and move some of these around because the highest since are creating a real line in the pattern. And I don't wanna do that. So what I can do, I'm going to go back to this group. I'm going to turn all those off. I'm going to open my save and load again and make sure I have the right settings. Now I can move these highest since around a little bit more. Maybe I'll make one of the smaller, So let's open them up. See, I'm going to turn off this group so I can see it a little bit better. And I know that once it up and down there it is. So I am going to adjust that one. Turn off my snapping because it makes it harder to move things, move that a little bit and rotate. It. Can also go in here and rotate this one a little bit less space, they're a little bit more. This last one, I'm going to bring it down a little bit. That way. I don't have everything white. So in line with each other. Maybe this one, I'll do that as well. This is when I would put snapping on. So I want to pull it all the way to the edge but not go over. Snapping will snap it to its right place. Well enough you could see it quite so well. You can see, I'll say yellow line there. When it hits right at the edge. Here it is, There's that yellow line and that way it won't go over the edge, but you can add it right up to the edge. And this is where you just start fiddling and moving things around so you don't have to have a little more space between them. Will always want to make sure that we put everything kind of right back. I'm going to get this one, move it over. There it is. Now there's a little bit more space between some of these items. So we have to go back again, do the same, flipping around of the patterns since we got it back to original before we want to make sure we always go back to where we started. Sometimes it can get tricky. But that's what helps to make it a seamless repeat because you can't quite tell where the edges are. All right, so I'm going to turn this layer group off, copy the canvas, turn all these off. When a new layer, and duplicate it. And we'll see how it turns out. So again, let's make sure magnetics and snapping is turned on. 2, 3, 4. That looks great. It's looking a lot better than the first. Merge them together. So I can show you a little bit of the difference just by moving a few, you kinda move it out of the way a little bit so you can't see the line quite as much. You can continue fiddling with it for ever. But I think right now that's a good stopping spot. Next lesson, I'm going to show you how to upload them to Spoonflower and Society 6 so that you can have your own designs to share with others or to print out for yourself at home. They're both really great sites to make just about anything you want. Let's go. 10. Recoloring: All right, so now you have your pattern already and you want to add more variations in the color. It's so simple to do. I'm going to turn these layers off. And I'm going to close the save and load because I don't need that anymore right now. And I'm going to open up my pattern group. What I can do is go in individually and change some of these colors. Or I can take all of the yellow flowers. And I'm going to rename that the yellow. They only do this once we have our pattern in place. And I'm going to take all of the blue hyacinth. Just kinda regain that oil. We're going to take all these little red berries. So you see that the red berries, the little yellow varies. And that I'm gonna do locate it here. I'm going to flatten it will turn out one out, always duplicate because you don't want to lose your original drives. So now I can change this pattern grew by going into the hue and seeing how it looks in a different color. Really like that pink, pinky color. So from here I can go in and change all the other ones. I'm going to duplicate and flatten those, turn off those yellows. And I can kind of pick a guru or love the pinks. On this one, you don't see a peak daffodil elsewhere, but that's totally fine. The red berries, again duplicate. And off the red berries pneumo and make those a little bit darker, perhaps. Love the contrast that's happening right there. Okay, Now, the highest sense, duplicate, flatten, turn that one off. I think I want to go purpley with this because they're kind of in that pink and purple. Well, whether that beautiful, I liked it a little brighter. So there we've changed those colors so easily. We can copy that canvas and add it to a new group. So now two different colors to choose from. We can also go in and change the background layer. I might, even for these pinks drop in, yellow, Let's turn that one off up top. Yellow is a little too bright, but hey, look, we can go into saturation and turn that down. You get more occurring me, well, what if we do a pale purple turn that saturation brightness now? So look at all those different color groups. So we have to choose from. And again, copy the Canvas and through the top Paste, sometimes it gets a little tricky because you'll run out of layers. But you can always merge things together and get rid of some of your layers later. So let's check out my color choices here so we can see. So we have that yellowy background, a creamy yellow background. We have the lavender path. Now. We have white background with the purple flowers, and then we have our original blue with the yellows. Next lesson, I'm going to show you how to upload them to Spoonflower and Society 6 so that you can have your own designs to share with others or to print out for yourself at home. They're both really great sites to make just about anything you want. Let's go. 11. Spoonflower & Society6: So now we're ready to get our repeat pattern out into the world. First, we're going to have to save our file. So I'm going to go in and share our Canvas, save it as a JPEG, since there is no transparent background and you can save it as a JPEG if you want to do a transparent background for say, cell phone covers in such, save it as a PNG file. Today we're just going to save it as a JPEG. I already named it spring botanicals. I like to save my files and I'm going to save it to my repeat patterns right in there. I love to make sure all my files are organized that way I know exactly where to find them later on. I'm also going to save some of the different layer designs that we did. Jpeg, again, save to files. This is where I can go in here and add a new name or a new number I'm just going to do to that way. It saves it differently. Sometimes you might want rename it based on the color, so that later on if you are trying to sell on a website, you've got the SEO working properly in there, but that's a whole other lesson. Alright, so now we have them saved into our files and click out of here and open Spoonflower first login and get an account set up with spoon flower. It's really great for bedding and House decor. All your fabric means and wallpaper as well. Because you guys, you can make wallpaper. It's really fabulous. Spoonflower is great. I'm going to open up my settings and go to my design library. And that's where I want to add a new design. So I am going to add this design. And we're going to select our files. I'm going to browse and find those repeat pattern spots that we were just looking in. Let's see where we found those. Okay, there we go. I have to hit open. Then they all go in queues that you own the rights for this and you do because it is yours. And then I can upload all four of those files at the same time. It will take a little bit of time to process all of those and get them in. I'm going to go over to society six real quick. And that's another great site. Log in and create your own account. And then you can start selling, going to hit sell. And then I can add new artwork here as well. This one you have to do individually. So we'll have to name it. And botanicals. You can add more photos if you want it to look at it a different from a different view. But I only ever do just one. Yes. I represented myself. I didn't copy it. And it does not contain any mature content. Everybody has their own things that they add to society. Six is really nice because as you can see, there are so many different things you can add it to. But they do have their own dimensions. So make sure that you save your patterns. Say, I want to have it on these curtains. I will make my dimensions 5300 by 9900 pixels and then add in that copy canvas of the print. That way your file isn't way too big. I start adding in the pattern blocks to match them up. And they might go over one edge a little bit, but that's okay. Let's see how spoon flowers doing. Yep, they're ready to upload. Now, there was one that had a problem, but we can retry that again. Sometimes there are some issues. So let's go in and see if we can find where our design libraries. So here are those designs they are ready to add into Spoonflower and start adding them to fabric or wallpaper. You can purchase them for yourself or you can start making money with spoon flower and Society 6, which is great because it's, you know, you put your design in and then you start making income off of your designs. It's a small amount, but it's a start. And then you can go from there. So have fun adding these. Have fun with this repeat patters and okay, Thank you. 12. Thanks: I just wanted to say thanks for sticking with me today and taking the class. I hope you learned a few things that save and load feature is just the bee's knees. It really is. It's really great for doing repeat patterns and getting that snapping motion to click it all together really changes the game with repeat patterns in Procreate 5. All right, Remember to hashtag creating with pH. That's per channel made. If you're on social media, don't forget to drop your pattern into the project section for sharing with the rest of the class. And thanks for sticking with me. I'm Katie from perchance.
