1. What You'll Learn in This Class: Have you always wanted to create your own custom wallpaper? Or have you been thinking about turning your artwork into a seamless repeat pattern? This class is for you. Hi, I'm Cynthia Harrison. I'm an interior designer and artists in Atlanta. As a designer, I'm always looking for ways to personalize environments. And then I discovered how to create a seamless repeat pattern using my hand-drawn motifs in Procreate. And that can be uploaded to Spoonflower and printed on wallpaper and fabric and other products. This has really been a game changer. In this class, we're going to look for inspiration to draw a fun and interesting motifs, and then create a seamless repeat pattern using our beautiful imagery in Procreate. I'll show you how to recolor your patterns and mockup a preview of your design so you can see it come to life. I'll also show you how to upload your pattern and order your custom wallpaper from Spoonflower's website. I'll even share my wallpaper installation with you. I'll teach you how to draw elements using your inspiration images. I'll show you my quick and easy techniques for creating dynamic repeat patterns and how to organize your drawings to streamline the recoloring process. You'll be able to use these skills to create your own custom patterns and transform them into wallpaper that's truly unique to you. You'll also be able to apply these patterns and motifs to other products that make great personalized gifts for friends and family, or to help you earn extra income. Not super confident with your drawing skills yet, not a problem. As a bonus, I've included a free download of my flower stamps in Procreate and you can use them as your motifs to practice creating repeat patterns. This class is suitable for students of all skill levels. And if you have some knowledge of Procreate, That's helpful, but definitely not required. I'll be sharing some high-level techniques. But if you want to take a deeper dive into drawing in Procreate, I encourage you to explore the many other phenomenal classes on Skillshare. If you'd like to hone your re-coloring skills, check out my Color Study class where I show you how to create your own custom signature palette and you can apply those to your custom wallpaper designs. Now before we get started, I just wanted to take a moment to encourage you to keep following your curiosity and to learn a new skill for your creative practice whenever possible. To quote educator John Holt, "We learned to do something by doing it. There is no other way." So I hope you practice these new skills and put them into action. And I hope you have fun with this. And thanks so much for joining me for this class. 2. Your Class Project & Resources: [MUSIC] Hey, welcome back. Your class project is to create a seamless repeat patterns for wallpaper in Procreate. Your finished project can be a collection of JPEG or PNG images. That can include your inspiration, maybe your Pinterest board or photographs you took on your nature walk. I'd also love to see your progress sketches of your motifs, as well as an image of your patterns watch. You can show it in just the full repeat, or you can scale it down to show the full repeating pattern. I'd also love to see a mock-up of your pattern as wallpaper using the mockup template. If you get to the point of installing your wallpaper, I would love to see images of that so don't forget to pop back into the class and post pictures. To help you get going, I've included some supporting resources. There are some procreate class downloads, including a flower stamp that I created, some color palettes, a texture brush, and a wallpaper mockup. I've also included links to a Pinterest board for inspiration and some principles of design for you to reference, as well as some spoonflower guides and a link to Creative Market where you can download your own templates for wallpaper mock-ups for Photoshop. I'm really excited to work with you on this project so join me in the next lesson and we'll get started looking for inspiration. 3. Finding Inspiration: [MUSIC] Hey, welcome back. In this video lesson, we're going to be looking for inspiration to help guide us along the way while we sketch our motifs and build our patterns. In Julia Cameron's: The Artist's Way, she talks about filling the well. She talks about collecting images to help refresh our artistic reservoirs. You can do that by collecting images from magazines or what I like to do is build a Pinterest board. You're probably already familiar with Pinterest. But this is a Pinterest board I built, i's called Geo Flowers and I've included a link in the resources section if you want to reference that, or just build your own and have fun with it. My Geo Flowers board is full of geometric flowers and while I was building it, I was thinking about minimal modern, abstract, mid-century modern, almost folk art style. I tried to collect images from lots of different resources so that I wasn't too heavily reliant on just one source. But anything that caught my eye that had maybe a vibrant color or some geometry that was eye-catching or maybe it was just the layout or the composition, but this is what I gathered. I'm going to use this to help to guide my aesthetic along the way. Of course, my absolute favorite way for gathering inspiration is going on a nature walk. You don't have to live next to a forest or a nature preserve, just go outside and walk around and pay attention to all the little details around you. We actually planted some cherry trees last year and this year the blossoms were so incredible. I was just blown away by them. I'd really like to use them as inspiration for creating a new pattern for my Geo Flowers collection, and I'm going to reference these photos as well. Take your camera, take your iPhone, get outside, get some fresh air, and connect with nature. Up next we'll be setting up Procreate. I'll see you in the next lesson. 4. Setting Up Procreate: [MUSIC] Hey again, welcome back. In this lesson we're going to be doing a few things to get a setup in Procreate before we start sketching our motifs and designing our wallpaper pattern. Before we set up our canvas size and procreate, we need to consider a couple of things. Probably the most important is scale. Since we'll be focusing this class on uploading our designs to Spoonflower's website, it's important to understand what Spoonflower's requirements are for their wallpaper designs. Spoonflower has provided this handy sizing wallpaper designs guide on their website. I've included a link to this in the resources section for you to reference. But essentially what we need to know here is that Spoonflower's wallpaper rolls are 24 inches wide. This is really helpful for us so we can start to visualize what our motifs would look like, whether they're sized at six inches or 12 inches, or 18 inches, whatever you like. You can start to imagine what a 24-inch roll width would look like. Once you have Procreate open, let's go ahead and create a custom canvas size based on the information that we gained from Spoonflower's 24-inch roll width. I like to work with a square canvas. I think I'm going to work with a 12 inch by 12 inch square canvas. Let's do that by clicking on the plus sign here at the top right. Then let's create a new custom canvas size by clicking on the "Custom Canvas" icon just under that. Let's change our units to inches. Then let's type in 12 inches by 12 inches. I want to leave my DPI at 300 because Spoonflower's minimum is 150 DPI, but we can always scale it down rather, if we wanted to scale it up and only had 150 DPI, it might be a little harder to work with the resolution there. Let's keep it at a higher DPI. You'll see here that the maximum layers is 37. I think this might be a little different depending on which version of the iPad you have. But for us, 37 is plenty to work with us. We sketch our motifs and build our patterns. The next thing we want to do is change our color profile. Because Spoonflower requires sRGB color profile, we're going to select the second one here which is pretty industry standard. The last thing we want to do is name our canvas. [MUSIC] Then we're going to just create. That's going to automatically open our brand new canvas to work with. Before we get started drawing, I like to set up a drawing guide. I'm going to select the "Actions" tool at the top left is this little wrench icon. Then select "Canvas" and toggle the drawing guide on. Once you do that, you'll see a grid pop-up on your canvas. I want to edit the size of that grid. Let's select "Edit Drawing Guide." That's going to pop up this drawing guides menu, dialogue. The 2D grid is already selected, but we want to take the grid size all the way up to max. That is going to divide our canvas into four quadrants, which is really going to come in handy later on when we're setting up our repeat pattern. Another feature in Procreate that I really like to use is assisted drawing. We're going to toggle that on. It's the button on the lower right hand corner. Then we're going to click on the symmetry tab right above that. Then you're going to see this Options tab. Click on "Options." That's going to give us some guide options. You're going to see vertical, horizontal, quadrant, and radial. I think for the first motif I'm going to be drawing, I'm going to keep the vertical guide option selected. But we can always come back and modify this whenever we need to. Now I'm going to select "Done" in the upper right-hand corner. Now it'd be a great time to go ahead and download the flower stamps, color palettes, texture, brush, and wallpaper mockup template that I created for you to use in Procreate. To do that, click on the "Projects and Resources" tab. Then click on the "Class Downloads" link. That will take you to this form where you can fill in your first name and your e-mail address, and then click the "Get The Downloads" button. Then pop over to your inbox. You should see an e-mail from me for the Procreate freebies and just scroll down and click the "Download" button. Then that will take you to this drop box where you can physically download these freebies onto your iPad. Here you'll see we've got a flower stamps, color swatches. There's a retro mod and a springtime color swatch. There's a wallpaper mock-up for Procreate, and a wallpaper texture brush, and then a warm neutrals color palette as well for you to use. Click "Download" at the top. Then you'll see this arrow with a circle at the top right. That'll just take a couple minutes. Once it's finished, click the file and then click on the ZIP file in your downloads folder. That will open the folder with all the files in it. Then click on each one and it will automatically load into Procreate. [MUSIC] Now if you'll click on your brushes tool for the brush library, you'll see the wallpaper texture has loaded, and your flower stamps have appeared as a new set of brushes in your brush library. Then let's click on the pallets tool so you can see your new color palettes have been loaded, the springtime warm neutrals and retro mod. Now let's go to the gallery. Click the upper left gallery tab and you'll see the wallpaper mock-up art board has been loaded. The last thing we want to do is name our canvas that we created. I'm going to call mine Cherry Blossoms. [MUSIC] Just enter that and hit "Done." Now we're ready to get started sketching. Next up we'll be sketching our motifs in Procreate. See you there. [MUSIC] 5. Sketching Motifs in Procreate: [MUSIC] The first thing we want to do is pull up some of our inspiration images using the split view feature. Tap the multitasking button at the top center of your screen, then tap split view. Then you can select either Photos or Pinterest or whatever app you're referencing. Then you can use your finger to drag the divider between the Procreate app and the images app to adjust how much of the screen you want each to take up. I can use my fingers to zoom in really close if I need to to see all the detail. You can also just insert a photo straight onto your Canvas by selecting the Actions tool, and then selecting Add, and then insert a photo, and that will put the photo directly on your artboard, and you can trace that if you like. If it's your photo, no one's going to call the art police. Or if you have permission from whoever took the photo, that's fine too. If you're not super confident in your sketching skills yet, you can play around with the flower stamps that you downloaded from the class resources, and those are in your Brush Library. You can just play around with those or experiment, and just see what you come up with. I like to draw motifs with the Monoline pen from the built-in calligraphy brushes. I'm going to select this almost black color from the warm neutrals palette. A general rule of thumb is to keep all of your motif elements on separate layers so you can edit or re-color them a lot more easily. You'll see what I mean once we get further into the sketching process. But just keep that in mind as you start sketching your motifs. I want to keep my patterns simple. I'm going to create just a few motifs, and I think I'll draw a top view of one of the cherry blossoms showing the geometry of the petals, and the stamen. Then I'll draw a side view with the stem. Then I'll probably draw some of the leaves to add some variety in interest. For the top view, I changed my drawing guide options to quadrant, and I'm just going to start sketching some petals until I'm happy with the shape, which will probably take me a few tries. You can see how the drawing assist is helping us by mirroring the petal from where I'm drawing it to the opposite side of the Canvas. I think I like this shape, so I'm going to fill it in. Then I'm going to use the eraser to start to articulate the end of the petal, and I'm just going to zoom in a little bit here, and make sure I get a smooth edge. Now I'm going to duplicate that layer by swiping left on the layer, and selecting duplicate. Then I'm going to rotate it 90 degrees by selecting the transform tool. Then I'm going to merge these two layers into one by squeezing them together with two fingers. Now I want to draw the stamen on top of the petals. I'm going to use a separate layer to do that. I'm going to select a new layer, and then I'm going to select the Drawing Assist, and then I'm going to change my color to this creamy white. Now I'm going to start drawing a line, but I'm going to hold my pencil down to activate procreates quick shape feature so that I can make a perfectly straight line. Then if I press, and hold with one finger, it will snap 90 degrees. That's going to be the filament of the stamen, and then I'm going to zoom in, and draw the anther on the edge. I bet you didn't realize you are going to be getting a lesson in the anatomy of a flower today, but that's what those are called. Because symmetry is so important here, I'm going to make sure that the stamen is perfectly centered on the Canvas. I'm going to select the transform tool, and that's where we can check the magnetics, and snapping. If those are both turned on, I can align the stamen layer with the grid on the Canvas, and I'll know it's aligned when those two yellow lines show up. Now I'm going to duplicate that stamen, and then rotate it 90 degrees. Then I'll merge those two layers together, and turn the drawing assist off. Now I'm going to duplicate that stamen. I want it to be a different color. I'm going to turn the Alpha Lock on, and then I'm going to rotate that stamen 45 degrees with the transform tool. Then I'm going to change the color back to that black color, and then I'm going to select the layer, and select Fill Layer. Now I want to change my background color to that creamy white we were working with. I'm going to select the background color at the bottom of our layers, and change that. That can be any color you want, but I'm just going to stick with two colors for our motifs, and patterns. We've got our top view of our cherry blossom, and now I want to do a side view. I'm going to change my inspiration image to a view that shows something more from the side with a stem. This is a good view. Now I want to draw those on a different layer. I'm going to go ahead, and group the layers of the top view motif by selecting the top layer, and then swiping to the right on the other two layers, and then tap Group at the top. I'm going to minimize the group by selecting the arrow, and then hide it by unchecking the box. Now I'm going to make a new layer. Then I'm going to turn the drawing assist back on, but this time I want to draw with the drawing assist set to vertical instead of quadrant. I'm going to go back into the Actions tool and edit the drawing guide like we did before. Now I'm going to start sketching. [MUSIC] Now we've drawn our leaves as well. We're going to go ahead, and group those two layers for the leaf motif. Now we have three separate motifs, each grouped individually, and I can toggle each one on, and off. Before we finish, I like to keep things nice, and tidy. I'm going to go ahead, and group these three groups together. That way I have all of the original artwork for each motif stored away in a nice group. [MUSIC] Up next we'll be creating a seamless repeat pattern in Procreate. See you soon. 6. Creating a Seamless Repeat Pattern in Procreate: [MUSIC]. Hey, welcome back. In this lesson, we're going to be creating our repeat pattern in Procreate. But just in case you're wondering what's a seamless repeat pattern anyway? A seamless repeat pattern is an image that can be placed side-by-side with copies of itself without any visible seams or interruptions on the content. You can repeat this image and create a pattern that can go on infinitely. Take this wall tile, for example. When a pattern repeats across several tiles that stops on one and then continues where it left off on the next tile, the only difference is you see the grout line here. Whereas with a seamless pattern, you wouldn't see a seam, essentially our 12 by 12 Canvas that we created in Procreate is going to serve as our tile in this technique I'm about to show you, and anything that touches the edge of our Canvas or tile needs to be copied to the other side so that it seamlessly repeats. Now, before we start placing our motifs, I just want to go over a few design principles just to keep in the back of your mind while you're laying out your design. Things like proportion, scale, balance, harmony, variety, rhythm, and emphasis can help develop and maintain a sense of visual order among your motifs. For a deeper dive into the design principles, I've included a link in the class resources. Let's get started. The first thing I want to do is duplicate my group of motifs so that I can preserve all of the original artwork. Then I want to go into each individual motif and I would like to subtract the white stamen from the black petals below, because this is going to help me re-color later and I just want to keep two colors in my palette. I'm going to select the stamen layer and I'm going to hit select, then I'm going to switch to the petals layer. Then I'm going to use three fingers and swipe down and then cut that out. What you can see here is that, it has cut out the stamen from the petals. Now, I'm just going to delete that layer, flatten that group, and then I'm going to repeat those same steps for the other two motifs. [MUSIC]. Now, you can see when I change the background color, it shows through the flower petals where the stamen used to be. Now, I'm going to make sure that my drawing guide is set to quadrant and my snapping settings are turned on. Now, I'm going to rotate my flower 45 degrees, and then I'm going to duplicate that layer four times. Now, I'm going to move those copies to the four corners of the Canvas one at a time. Each time I do that, I'm going to make sure the yellow snap lines show up so that I know that my motifs are perfectly centered on each corner. Sometimes it takes a couple of tries to get it just right, but it's important to take the time here to do that. [MUSIC]. Now, you can see that anything that crosses over the top edge of the Canvas is repeated on the bottom. Anything that crosses over the left edge of the Canvas is repeated on the right side. Now, I'm going to arrange my other motifs. Anytime I've got something hitting the edge of the Canvas, I'm going to make sure that it's mirrored over to the other side. [MUSIC]. I think I'm pretty happy with this layout. I'm going to go ahead and test this layout and just make sure there aren't any gaps in the repeat. I'm going to duplicate my pattern group and then flatten that. Then I'm going to resize that so that it fits in the upper left-hand quadrant. Then I'm going to duplicate that and then shift it over to the right so that it fills the upper right portion of the Canvas. Then I'll merge those two layers and duplicate that, and then move it to the bottom half of the Canvas. Now, I can zoom in really closely to just make sure there aren't any gaps where the tiles meet. That looks good. To get ready for our mockup, which is part of the next video lesson, I'm going to go ahead and repeat those steps several times and fill the Canvas with a smaller scale of the pattern. [MUSIC]. I'd also like to add a texture to my pattern. I'm going to create a new layer, and then select my off-white color from the palette. Then I'm going to select the wallpaper texture brush that's available in the class downloads. I'll adjust the size a little bit and then I'll just go all over the Canvas with the wallpaper texture. That just looks a little bit heavy. I'm going to change the opacity of the layer by selecting the layer and then tapping on the n and then taking the opacity down to about 40 percent. Now, we are ready to export our wallpaper pattern. We're going to click on the Actions tool and select Share. I'm just going to export a JPEG. Then I'm going to save it to this folder that I created on my iCloud Drive, but you can save yours wherever is convenient for you. I also want to test a couple of other colorways for my wallpaper pattern. I'm going to duplicate my pattern layer, and then I'm going to alpha lock that layer. Then I'll select this teal green color from my color palettes, and then I'll go back to the layer and then select Fill Layer. But then I want to change the background color. I think I'll go with this dark green color. I like that. Now, I'm going to repeat those same steps and come up with a second colorway. Then I'll export both of these color wise as well, just like I did with the original. [MUSIC]. Up next, we're going to be imagining our designs as wallpaper using our mockup template. See you in a bit. [MUSIC]. 7. Imagining as Wallpaper: [MUSIC] Now we've exported our patterns, let's hop over to the wallpaper mockup and see what they look like as wallpaper. I've included a step by step guide on how to use this wallpaper mockup in Procreate. First, you want to select the wallpaper multiply mode layer, and then select Insert file from the actions menu, then select your wallpaper design file to insert onto the Canvas. Be sure to double check that your design is on the wallpaper layer because it's set to multiply mode, and then turn off the instructions layer. If you need to reposition or rescale your design, you can do that using the transform tool. I think I'm pretty happy with this pattern and I think it looks great as wallpaper. Now, I am a fan of black and white, but I'm going to go ahead and see what the other two colorways look like. I'm going to duplicate the wallpaper layer a couple of times and then turn off two of the three layers. Then I'll clear the layer and go ahead and insert the other file. [BACKGROUND] Then I'll just repeat those steps for the next colorway. You can also test your patterns on other mockups in Photoshop, I downloaded these from Creative Market, and I've included a link to that in the class resources. Up next, I'll show you how to export your files for Spoonflower. See you there. 8. Exporting Your Pattern: [MUSIC] Let's get ready to export our files for Spoonflower. The first thing I want to do is double-check the file types, sizes, and color mode requirements on the Spoonflower website. I've included a link to this page in the class resources for your reference. They're asking for a JPG or a PNG file type and 150 dpi minimum. Then the overall file size needs to be under 40 megabytes. So let's check our Canvas settings by selecting the Actions tool and Canvas, and at the bottom, select "Canvas Information" and then select "Dimensions" on the left. Our canvas here is set to 12 inches by 12 inches and 300 dpi. Our current color profile is set to sRGB, so we are good to go. What we need to export for Spoonflower is just the pattern swatch that we created. That's essentially our repeat tile. Just make sure that all the other layers that we created are turned off and that only the full repeat swatch is turned on. I'm also going to include my wallpaper texture layer because I really like the extra dimension that that adds. To export our file, select the "Actions Tool" again, and then select "Share" and just select "JPG" or "PNG" whichever one you prefer. Then select the folder where you want to save your file, and then I'm going to add swatch to my filename so that I know that it's the full swatch repeat tile and that'll help make it easier for me to locate it later. Just select "Save" and it will export your file. Now I just want to double-check that the file I saved is in the folder where I put it and that it looks good. So [MUSIC] I'm going to locate it, open it up, check it out. [MUSIC] It looks good, so we are ready to go. [MUSIC] In the next lesson, we're going to be uploading our patterns to Spoonflower. 9. Uploading to Spoonflower: [MUSIC] I just want to quickly acknowledge Spoonflower for their sustainability efforts. I think it's so important and one of the reasons why I like to use them for my wall covering and fabric. Essentially, there are two ways that you can upload and print your fabric or wall covering on Spoonflower's website. The first option is just a very quick method. You just upload your design, resize it, figure out your quantity and order it. This option is fine if you're not ready or interested in selling your patterns. Once you upload your design, you'll be taken to the design preview page, and if you click on the Wallpaper tab, the default view is a mock-up in a room and you can re-size the design by selecting the smaller tab or the bigger tab, and the design view shows a ruler at the top and left side of your design, and I can see here, I've got two full repeats of my design, which was originally 12 inches, and so that's going to be two repeats on a 24-inch run. So then you can save the changes by selecting the Save Changes button here. It's always a good idea to order a sample on the actual material that you're going to use, just to verify that the color and size and everything looks good. Under the Choose a Size menu tab, there's an option for Swatch, which is a two foot by one foot sample of the wallpaper. Go ahead and select that, and then choose a quantity, I'm just going to get one of those and then add it to my cart. Once you receive your sample, if there's any change you'd like to make, you can go ahead and do that by uploading a revision in your design preview or if everything looks good, let's figure out the quantity. To calculate your quantity, you can select the Wallpaper tab at the top and then select Learn about wallpaper, and then scroll down until you see this wallpaper calculator link, and this will show you how to measure a wall and how to calculate the quantity of wallpaper that you need. There's also a good description here about the four different types of wallpaper that are available here. Once you've measured your wall, you can enter the wall height and width in feet and inches in the calculator here, and then select, Calculate. And that will give you an estimate of how much you need for each of the different four types of wallpaper. And I'm going to select the peel and stick removable woven type for my wallpaper installation, and it says here I need four panels of the two foot by 12 foot. Then I'll go back to the design preview page and choose the paper, the size, and the amount, and then I will add that to my cart. The next option is actually my preferred method because it gives you the opportunity to sell your designs. But to do that, you'll need to set up an account and do some extra administrative and marketing tasks. But it's certainly worth the extra effort, and there's actually a better built-in calculator for determining the quantity based on your specific pattern and layout. Once you've created an account and uploaded your design, you can scroll down below the design preview window and fill in the description and tags for the Marketing and Selling. Then scroll back up and then select the Go To Design Library button on the left. The next few steps are going to allow us to order a sampler so we can prove our design. Once you're in the Design Library, select Add Collection and then Add a New Collection, just give it a name and select Create. And then select that collection for your new design. Then select Collections on the left, and then select your collection. Select the link that says, See this collection in your design library, and then click on the Get a sampler button on the right. Then you'll be able to choose from all the different kinds of fabric and then select the Order a fabric sampler button. Another fun way to prove a design is to Fill-A-Yard. To do that, go back to your collection, click on Start Designing. From there you can choose a template and the fabric to design your project with. Select your fabric swatch on the right, and then click one or more areas in the design Canvas to fill them with your design. Once you've filled it, you can add it to your cart. I actually did this previously with another collection of mine and I'm going to use that fabric to create a Cheater Quilt for my niece. Once you've proved your design, you'll want to set it up for sale in your shop. To do that, go to your shop and update your shop data by selecting the Show my profile to the public checkbox and then select Update. Now that your shop is public, you can make any already proved designs available for purchase. So to do that, scroll down the design preview page to the Marketing and Selling section. And in the Sell or Display area, click the checkbox next to the, I would like to sell this design. If you get the attention warning, you'll just need to complete the Seller Verification, which is really easy to do. Hover over the small person icon in the upper right corner, and then click Account Settings from the drop-down, select the Verify Account tab, and then you'll just go through the steps of verifying your e-mail address, reading and accepting the seller agreement, verifying your address and completing the tax form, that whole process really doesn't take but a few minutes, so don't get overwhelmed by it. Once you've completed those steps, you'll be able to see your design in the actual shop view. From here you'll be able to select the type of wallpaper. Then there's a built-in calculator for how much you'll need based on the type of wallpaper. So then you'll select your size and quantity and add that to your cart. [MUSIC] Up next, we'll be installing our wallpaper. I can't wait to see you there. [MUSIC] 10. Installing Wallpaper: [MUSIC] Hey, welcome back. I am so excited about this video lesson because we finally get to install our wallpaper. First, I just want to highlight a couple of Spoonflowers recommendations for installing the wallpaper. I've included a link to this Spoonflower Help Center in the class resources section. I highly recommend watching Spoonflowers YouTube video on how to transform your space with peel and stick woven removable wallpaper. Once you've read the install guide, grab a friend or a partner, because this is definitely a two-person job. These are the wallpaper rolls I received from Spoonflower and they were kind enough to include this squeegee that is going to be really helpful. I just wanted to open it up and show you what it looks like and go over a couple of things real quick. The way the rolls are printed, the bottom of the roll is on the outside, so you'll need to re-roll each roll so that the top is on the outside. [MUSIC] Now the top of my roll is on the outside and I've got the backing here that if you peel it off, you can feel the adhesive on the back of the paper. This is the room I wanted to install the wallpaper. It's a half bath and it looks really boring. What a difference this pattern makes on that wall. Wow, this is certainly a lot more interesting than it was before. [LAUGHTER] I'll have to say, I won't be as embarrassed to let people use this bathroom when they come over. [LAUGHTER] I hope you had as much fun as I did and I hope your design and wallpaper is as much of a success, and I really appreciate you being here. [MUSIC] Next, we'll review what we've learned and talk about how to share our work. See you there. [MUSIC] 11. Thank You!: [MUSIC] Thank you for joining me for this class. I hope you feel more confident about looking for inspiration and drawing your motifs to create a seamless repeat pattern in Procreate. I would also encourage you to upload your designs to Spoonflower and order and install your own custom wallpaper, and I'd love to see what you do. Please be sure to share what you've done in the project section and engage with your fellow students. Don't forget to leave a review and follow my profile here on Skillshare if you liked this class. If you share your project on Instagram, you can tag me @CynthiaEHarrison. Thanks for watching, and I'll see you next time. [MUSIC].
