About This Class

This is Photoshop class for making tossed repeats. We will use paintings or finished journal pages that are already made and maybe not even planed to be used as surface pattern design. But we like motifs or composition or color combination, and we definitely love the hand-painted feel in them.

You could use mixed media paintings, acrylics, watercolors, or whatever is your favorite tools to play, even collage. The best part is, we will try to get the same esthetic from original in final repeat tile, and we will use background too.

You know in Photoshop you could do the same thing with different steps, and even different techniques, but hey this is my version how I do it. So I would like to share it with you, if you did never do it that way and if you are wondering how could you use your sketchbook pages....then welcome in to my classroom, and please leave me a review, share your creations in our gallery so that other peoples will be able to join us.

PS just in case if you want to learn more about my mock-up process I did make a class about that, just the theme is different, because we did sketch an interior mock-up sketch. But how it is made you could see that in that particular class.
If there will be a lot of interest I could make new fashion flats mock-up design later.

Now let`s dive in and make something beautiful today.

I work as self-employed pattern maker-designer a.k.a. Tutorial Girl. I design everything from shoes to clothes and bags ... anything I need that I can't find. I recycle a lot of old jeans into a new hand painted and free motion stitched surface patterns, so my designs are a little bit more personal to me. I have a big wish to become a surface pattern designer some day and the last few years I'm the happiest if my hands are covered with paint. I've never grown up and I still live like DIY pers...
