1. Introduction : Have you ever dream of your wallpaper for your droom with your own design? Have you ever wondered how to design your wallpaper even though you are not designer, it's super easy now to make a wllpaper with your own design, with an iPad and Procreate. And let me show you how. Hi, I'm Phuong Lempinen an illustrator and surface pattern designer living in Finland. I design patterns in my daily life from simple to complicated one, I can make pattern in different softwares such as Photoshop and Illustrator, Affinity Designer and Procreate. Procreate in my most favorite software to pattern because of its convenience and I can make pattern everywhere on my iPad. There are many ways to make pattern in Procreate. But in this class, I'm just going to show you the easiest and relaxing way to make pattern And if you are a beginner in Procreate, you can also follow along easily. I'll show you some basics tools of using Procreate and step-by-step how to make your first pattern and then upload it to Spoonflower to order your first wallpaper And all you need for this class is an iPad, Procreate app, and of course, Apple pencil or any stylish. So let's have fun together and see you in the class. 2. Class project : For the project of this class, I would like to see your first pattern and you can just follow those steps in the class to show off your design here in the Project section, you can also post the mockup from Spoonflower site by taking screenshots and upload your screenshot here. For the resources of this class, I've prepared for you a document which is a kind of theory how to make a repeating pattern. A pack of brushes that I'll be using in this class. A pack of elements that you can use to make your own pattern. But do you remember it is just a personal use. So if you have Photoshop, check out the link in the Project description below where you can find a free mockup to show off your wallpaper design. I would be super excited to see your wallpaper installed in your house. So if you do that, please, please, please definitely share with us in the Project section and I would like to see how your final products come out. So now let's jump into the class! 3. What is repeating pattern?: Hi, In this lesson we're gonna learn about what repeating pattern is and what is made traditionally. So if you are familiar with the repeating patterns, please skip this lesson, yeah, I just think maybe it will be easier for some people when they can see on paper. So in this lesson, I just want to show you how a repeating pattern can be made in a traditional way. And we actually going to make our repeating pattern in digital way anyway. And I hope it can help you understand better when we work in Procreate, when we need to move our Canvas. But it actually a later lesson. So let's start this lesson. Here is what we need in this lesson, I have, this is kind of perfect squares. And just a maker or any pen I don't know, or even pencil it is up to you and any kind of scissors. And you actually need a tape. I actually didn't find any better tape so I'm gonna use it in this lesson. In digital We can this square canvas to have a repeating pattern we're gonna make these edges at the top and the bottom repeated. And the edges from the left and the right repeated So let's draw some circle here, or flowers or rectangles or anything that you like. I'm gonna just draw a flower here. And remember that you don't touch the edges. Smaller. Like this. Don't touch the edges. Just something that goes together like this but yeah, I think it's perfect for me. So now we're going to cut it into four pieces. I first we're gonna, we're gonna make it like this. We need some lines. I'm going to cut this into four pieces. It's actually like this. Okay, So we have now four pieces like this. And the original was like this. So now we're going to, now we're gonna move the edges here and here to the center, and the edges at the top and the bottom to the center. So how we can do that? I'm going to show you, I'm gonna move this like this. And the same with this one. Then we're going to just move, change the place of this. So you can see that now the edges at the left and right are repeated at the edges at the top and the bottom are repeated Now we're going to use the tape to make them together. You see the center is empty. So we're going to fill it with the same motifs. Continue to draw until you pleased with it. Okay, we got, so we've got repeating tie here. If you put the same tile next to each other it's gonna never end. So it is just the example. And these tiles I actually scanned from the original, so I didn't draw it really accurately. So you see, this's just example From the repeating tile, We can make a lot of things for fabric, wallpaper I can show you some of my fabrics with the repeating tile that I make from Procreate. Or you see some tiles of mine on different fabrics. So we just got our repeating pattern on paper and I hope you understand how a repeating pattern made. So see you in next lesson! 4. A basic beginner’s guide to Procreate: This is really a quick guide to use Procreate for beginners. So if you are familiar with Procreate, please skip this lesson. It is just short introduction to Procreate. You can use some tools to help you work with Procreate. We need to make a new file. Here at the top right you can see a plus button. You are on the size of Canvas that I have used. Tap the plus button at the top right. And it will bring you to the custom canvas where you can set the size of your choice and resolution. DPI of your canvas. And three hundreds 300 DPI is the high resolution of an artwork for printing. So I recommend you also use it. And let's make a Canvas with 3000 x 3000 px I have this here, but just fill it, like this. The maximum layers will vary depending on file size in DPI, also depends on your iPad. My iPad is iPad Pro with 500GB memory, so it gives me 70 layers. But actually it's a lot. Make sure you also choose pixels here. This one. Here at the color profile, you can choose the RGB or CMYK file, but we aim to make our wallpaper with Spoonflower. So on Spoonflower we can send our file with RGB profile. So let it be at RGB. And yeah, and then just create. Now this white is your Canvas Under the left, the bar with 2 sliders The top slider, we change the size of your brush strokes. While the bottom slider will affect the opacity of your strocks. Tapping the small square in the middle will allow you to utilize the eyedropper tool, which will let you pick a color from your Canvas. Actually, I don't use tit much because I just touch to the screen to pick a color from a photo or any sources. Okay. Beneath that, there are some undo and redo. buttons So let's talk about the tools for drawing first, and that's on the main tools that you use, often all over your process Let's look at the top right. Here is the brush library, Smudge, Eraser and Layers, and then Color. Click on this circle. You can change your color to the new one by tapping another color, another color here, or you can choose it here. The most used in the Palette here Tap it Here at bar shows your color palettes. You can save your color palettes that you want to use here. Here is a little plus, here. By this way, you can create a new color palette. Yah when you tap this, you can choose the color from your canvas or any sources that, and then add it to your color palette here. Or you can add any photos and the Procreate will automatically make it for you. Or from file from photos. Yeah, these functions, it actually depends on the iPad, but I actually use a lot the "create a new palette" And I just pick my color by myself. Okay, choosing, choosing your color, I am going to use this one. We just chose our color Now, let's choose Brush go to Brush Library. My favorite brush pack from Procreate is the Inking here. And my favorite brush from this pack at this moment is Tinderbox. I call it tinderbox are tiderbox. I don't know. Yeah. This is the original. And you can see the Tinderbox 2 or Tinderbox 1 they are the custom brush that I make from the original one. It's easy if you are interested in making custom brushes in Procreate by yourself. Check out my two other classes on Skillshare. So let's make a stroke on the canvas. Like this. Something. If you want to adjust your stroke, you just slider from the left side. Yeah, you can make it super small like this or you can make it bigger. If I try with another Tinderbox brush that I have custom, then this's gonna give me even bigger, bigger stroke. You can choose other brushes from other from other packs that procreate offers. Smudge Smudge tool also has different brushes for you to choose from. And it depends on your projects. You will need to use this tool Then eraser. Eraser tool has the same brush library for you to choose from and depends on your project, you will need different brushes. Now, the Layer one, the Layers where you also use a lot in your process. You can make your canvas transparent by unchecked the background like this. You can add a new layer by clicking the plus button. Like this. You can also hide any layer if you want by just unchecking the box of that layer. Now, move to the left of your canvas. Gallery brings you back to the Procreate interface. And the first one is the Actions tool, let's tap it. Here. You see the action tool, you actually have different functions here. But here the most used buttons is Add and Share. With the Add button. You can do these things Insert a file, Insert a photo, photo at texts. I'm going to show you how it works when we're going to make our work. But now I'm just talk about it a little bit like that. With the share button. The share button allows you to export your work in the format that you need Artwork is often exported with Pdf or JPEG or PNG file. If you want your artwork with transparent, remember, just to uncheck the box of the background layer before you go to Share. By the way, if you wonder, if you have a dark interface now And you wonder how to have a light interface like mine. And go to this Preps here and then turn on the Light interface like that. And you can have the same interface, alright, mine. Yes, Right-hand interface for moving the slider from the left side to right side. And it's up to you. It works for me when the slider on the left Let's move to the Adjustments. Here are different effects that you can use depends on your project is not for beginners, so you can take a look at it by itself and use it when you feel free using Procreate. Let's go to another one. The Select button. When you tap it, the Select button helps you select the element on one layer, I often use the free hand tool and copy paste It will copy the selected element to another layer. Let me show you. Use your Apple pencil and just circle one element And my sure that on the layer that has that element. So I'm going to choose the layer one here. And let's tap it again. So I'm going to tap it again. I'm going to circle it again. Now. The Copy paste is on is active, I just tapped copy paste And now you see I have the same elements in another layer. this's just a copy from the original one, but it works the same. The Arrow here. helps you move your elements around the Canvas. Let me show you. I'm going to turn on the Select. First. You need to choose the element that you want to move around the Canvas. So you need to circle anything I think I want to make another element actually can make two element like this. And then the arrow here helps make them active like this. You see? Now you can use your Apple pencil and just, just move it around like this makes sure that it is in Uniform to keep the form of elements. So if you go to Distort you can also move it around and make it bigger or smaller, but it distort form of the elements. And what the uniform do is just, when you want to make it smaller or bigger. The form of that element doesn't change. Free form. This Free form is actually changed by the pressure or by the movement of your Apple pencil. You see? So that's all about the basics of procreate for beginner. And I think it is enough for you to work in the project of this class. So let's go to the next lesson! 5. Terms of making pattern in Procreate: Why did I decide to make this into the separate lesson? That's because I think you should know some terms of what I use to make a pattern and why I do that, then this is gonna be better for you to follow along. So let's jump to the lesson. First, Canvas Canvas. Canvas is where you place your element to make a pattern tile Before you make your tile, you should know the size of your canvas. Motif. motif it's just one element of your tile And in surface pattern design, we call it motif You can have many motifs in your pattern and you can also have just one motif. Canvas and motif are the main elements when you make a pattern, placeholder is kind of assistant and helps you move your motif from side-to-side in the Canvas. Doesn't change the form of your motif or it helps you move your motif to the right place in the other side of your Canvas, also helps you move the edges to the center and vice versa. Remember when you use the place holder, you need at least 4 free layers to complete the process. Let's jump into Procreate Here is a small tutorial about how to use placeholder. This is our canvas. In Procreate, if something is lying outside the canvas is gonna be cut out. If you put something outside the canvas like this, that means you just deleted that element. You see? So if you put something between inside and outside like this, your element is going to be cut out. So choose it again. You see? So that's why you need two same elements. One, you move to the right and another one you move, you move to the left. Like this. That is, can be repeated when the edges meet each other. But the problem is that when you move your elements like like that, with eyeballing, you can make sure that the parts of the element are match each other So that's why we need a placeholder. Let me show you. Now. Go to the layer, then tap the little plus. You're gonna choose another color, just, any color from your palette. And you can fill the layer like this. You can just tap this layer, then Fill layer. Now we're going to turn down the opacity of this layer that you can see your element. You can choose them by swiping left to right like this. Then at the top right, tap Group. Now you have the first group. Now you need two same groups, swipe the new group to the left, like this, then you see Duplicate. So now, so now you have two groups now we're gonna move one group to the left and another one to the right. Let's move the first one here to the left. Make sure your snapping is active. And the magnetics and snapping is on, distance max velocity max. And now turn off your arrow. Now go to Layers and to another turn on the arrow. And now we're gonna move to the opposite. And to, to see your Canvas, Hey, the same color. You can be sure that the left and the right. Now repeated. And you know, when you're snapping is all, you can see. The yellow and the blue lines are telling you that the first and the second group are matching each other. Now you see your Canvas has one color. Now just the turn off, the arrow here. Now go to layers and you can delete the placeholder because you don't need it anymore. Delete it. Delete it. Now you can merge these layers together. Remember the repeating part and listen. You can use the place holder to bring the edges to the center, then this center line, repeat on paper. You see I have Canvas view with the elements that don't touch the edges. Now I'm going to move the edges at the left and right, and the top and the bottom to the center. So let's go to layer. I'm gonna make a copy of this layer 3 here Yes. You know when you have a copy for backup , if you do wrong, then you can have something to start in. So I'm going to hide the lower layer here. And maybe I'm going to change these two original. Yes. Now, make a new layer and fill it with color. We're gonna do the same with like we did with one elements Now I'm going to turn up the opacity of this placeholder layer to 70% 79 it is fine. Okay, So I'm going swipe the layer 3 to the right to choose it. I'm going to group them together. Now. I'm going to duplicate this group. Now we have the same groups. So I'm going to turn on the arrow here to activate the first group now, and then I'm going to move it to the right. You see, when you see the yellow and the blue lines are here. So you can know that this mapping Esau. So turn off the arrow. Now we're going to move to the second group to the left. Now. Snapping here, help us to know that when it meets the center of the canvas. So turn off the arrow here. Now you see the Canvas has the same color. You can now delete the place holder layer You don't need it anymore, then you can merge these layers together. Okay, so we're going to make it backup again. So I'm going to duplicate and rename, left right repeated So I'm gonna hide this. And now with the layer 3, I'm going to do the same. I'm gonna do the same, like we just moved the left and right edges to the center. Now we're going to do with the top and the bottom So I make a new layer and I'm going to fill this layer. Now I'm going to turn down the opacity of the layer, placeholder layer now and then swipe layer 3 to the right and group them then duplicate this group We have two groups with the same elements here. We're going to move the first group down and then turn off the arrow Now we're going to active the second group . Arrow on, then move it up. Yes. Now turn off. Now we're going to delete the placeholders layers don't need it anymore. So I'm gonna merge these layer together now the edges are repeated So you can, you can fill the center with the elements you want. So I'm going to make another layer and then I'm going to fill, then I'm going to fill this tile with the new layer. In case I need to change something later. You can test it by merging these layers like this. Now, I'm going to duplicate this layer. And I'm going to go not resize this layer by tapping the arrow and hold, hold the top right corner of the tile, then slide down until the corner point, meets the center of the canvas, shows the size of the tile right now is a half of the canvas. Turn off the arrow. Now you're going to hide the lower layer. I often do like this. So I'm going to duplicate this layer. Then I'm going to move this to the right, next to the first one, make sure that they are perfectly matching each other Now, I'm going to merge the first and the second one layers together. And then I'm going to duplicate this layer. Now, I'm going to turn on the first layer here. I'm gonna move it up and makes sure that the top and bottom are matching each other perfectly. Yes. Yes. I'm going to merge We have a new tile with scale is smaller than the original. So now let's jump to the next lesson. 6. Wallpaper Design: Let's talk about wall paper design. It's actually easier than you think if you are a designer. There are many things to cover when you design for a wallpaper company. Here in this class, we're going to make a wallpaper for ourselves. So we just want to have fun and something that just for us. Something special and unique to design a wallpaper, you need to have first up Canvas size You need to decide what big your canvas can be. Actually, it's up to you when you make a wallpaper for yourself, you can decide how big you want to see the motifs on the wall and draw the motifs that dimension. Second, color palette. If you choose to make your wallpaper with available elements from market, then just need to have in mind that the colors you want and what style of your house right now to find the right elements for your design. When you have some ideas or what you want in your mind, you can find it faster If you draw a new wallpaper. You should also consider the style and what kind of wallpaper for what kind of room is used For Kids the colors properly will be more colorful, bright, or with fun motifs. Black color background might not be used everywhere. So make sure you know how to use black color for your house As we live in Finland, a country from Scandinavia. You can see the color from wallpapers from the store are almost neutral or muted colors. If you want something with vibrant and colorful then Spoonflower site is really the best place to find One of the most important thing is the motifs or design elements that you put into your Canvas to make it a repeat tile. It depends a lot on your home style or depends on the use of every room in your house to get the right wallpaper you absolutely don't need to draw beautifully to make a wallpaper. If you're wondering how you can design your wallpaper without drawing skill. Then the next lesson is for you, I'm gonna show you how you can make pattern tile that is from available element then I also show you how you can draw your wallpaper with simple or complicated elements with the choice. And I also show you how to garther inspiration from where you live or on the Internet to get your own design. Now see you in the next lesson! 7. Available motifs: As I told you in the last lesson, that you don't need to draw beautifully to design your wallpaper. You can find different kinds of illustration from the Internet. This is Creative Market where I often buy mock-up for my work. But there are many other things too. Let's see, if you need a summer illustration for your wallpaper. You can go to search here and type. There are tons of related contents, choose what suits your home-style. Let's try this. You see there are lots of things that we can do with these elements. There are also some patterns made with these motifs too. Another site called Design Cut where I used to buy a lot of brushes for Procreate. You can find any topic by typing in search. When you find the illustration you want, just add to cart. Remember to read the caption to see what's included in this pack and what kind of file you'll get. The best file that work with Procreate is PNG with a transparent background. Remember, 300 DPI is a need. Now, go to Skillshare with your web browser. I'm going to show you where you can get my Mongo illustration at project section go down and you see the resources. And then you can find a link to my Dropbox, click on that link tap that ZIP file And it takes you to another page. Then tap the three dots at the top right, then Export. Now save to files or to your Dropbox. It's up to you. It's going to take some time to download. And then when this process finished, go to Procreate and then create a document with 4000 by 4000 pixels. Now, we're going to import our file to the Canvas, go to the Actions here, then "Insert a file". You can do it one at a time until all illustration are on the Canvas. In the next lesson, we're going to make our pattern with these illustrations. 8. Design wallpaper with available motifs: Okay, So all illustrations I here, I often make a back up first. So now we're going to make another document, choose, Select, and then Duplicate. Now I'm going to make it a little bit smaller. You actually just eyeballing. You can choose the size that you want. I think now it's okay. Yes. I think I'm going to and I'm going to separate them a little bit that I can see them better. Before we go to make our pattern, I have something to tell you about this method. Sometimes it just super hard to see if you have a good combination. So you need to try all your ideas. I mean, try what do you think that's right first and then come back to fix. So let's start. I'm going to hide all layers and let only one layer active. This one. Now, turn on the arrow here. I think I want it to be here, and I want the top and bottom edges repeated You need to bring the motif next to the edge as much as you can and use the same method we learned with the place holder at the previous lesson to move this motif. First let's make another layer. Fill it with another color. Turn down the opacity. Now choose motif 1 and then put the placeholder layer .Duplicate. For the first group, we move up and the second group we move down. You can decide how you want it to be cut out at the edge. I think it's okay. Now, turn off the arrow here. Now with the second work, we're going to move it down. Choose it and turn on the arrow. Remember to turn on Snapping. Move it down until you see the canvas, has the same color. Now turn off the Arrow. Delete the placeholder layers and group layers together. Now I'm going to lock this layer and move this layer down. That it won't disturb us. I often want to have the edges repeated then fill the center. Now, I'm going to turn on this without fruit. I think it would be great if you could repeat it at the corners. Now I'm going to resize but just a little bit. And then I'm going to try to move it to the edges at the top right corner. Actually, I'm not sure all about that. All I do is just try and find the best composition for all. I'm trying to put it next to the edges and the top right corner. With this kind of place, You need to first make the edges at the left and the right repeated. Then do again to make the edges at the top and the bottom, repeated. With the same method and moving it up. Now, we're going to make the top and the bottom edges repeated. First, let's make a backup. Then I'm gonna bring deep backup down, then hide it. And the next we're going to use the placeholder method and do the same things. Now I'm going to bring this layer down and then I'm going to lock it. The next layer. I think the Mongo illustration without leaves, it is gonna be good to be under the leaves without fruits one So I am going to use these layer. Then I'm going to try to move it next to the edge. And then I'm gonna try to give it a position under the leaves. The next step with placeholder is gonna be the same as we did before. Let's do it. Sometime. I feel like he doesn't listen to me. So I used my two finger to hold the screen and then zoom out to make it bigger. These have these courses easier for you to move the motif to the place you want. So now this motif is also repeated at the edges. I'm going to move it down to now I'm going to turn on this. Yes. And I think I'm going to move it a little bit to the bottom right corner. But wait, I think it is a little bit small for me, so I want it a little bit bigger. But, you know, in Procreate, when you make it smaller, you just cannot make it bigger later. So that's why that's why I made a backup before I started to make bargaining. Now I'm going to go to the backup document, and then I'm going to copy that same motif to this document. Another way you can do is that you can just go to the action and add another file. Do what you feel easier, but I just want to show you this way Now, the original is here. And then we're going to resize it a little bit. Yes. Like this. And I'm trying to move it to the bottom right again. Yes, like this. I think I'm going to bring this layer down under the layer of the mango with the leaves. I want to see how it's look behind the Mongos with the leaves and it's a really good, look better. So yes. Yeah, I'm really pleased with this composition. Now I'm going to turn on next one. Make it active, and then move it a little bit to the left. We're going to feel this whole year. Yeah, I think actually it's a little bit big. Maybe I'm going to resize it just a little bit like this. Bring it a little bit down. And then I think I'm going to turn it a little bit to the right. Yeah, it looks good. And let's see how it looks behind those elements. It's good. Just make a little adjustments here. Now this tile still have a hole here. So I think I'm going to turn on the last motif and I'm going to put it here. And then I'm going to make some adjustments. And we're going to test our tile in the next lesson. 9. Test repeating tile: Okay, Now we're going to export the tile. Go to Actions then Share. We're going to export this in JPEG file. If it's JPEG file, so it is in your Photo gallery. Now we're going to now go to Actions again and ADD we're going to "Insert the photo "with the same method that I showed you in the previous lesson about placeholder. I'm going to resize, be tile to the half of the canvas. And then duplicate this layer and move it and move the second layer to the right. Now I'm going to merge these layers together and then duplicate this layer, move it, move it up, and now merge them together. I think it is good. But I yeah, I don't like this hole here and I actually want to have something here to hide this place So now I'm going to come back to my tile And I decide to duplicate the last motif And then I'm gonna flip horizontal because I want it to look not the same. NowI resize it. And then I move it down next to edge Now I'm going to make it repeated So we're going to use placeholder and we're gonna do the same with it. Now I'm going to share it into JPEG file and then add to my file to Canvas again, resize and now resize it to the half of the canvas. Duplicate. And then move the layer to the right, Merge these layers together. And then duplicate. Move this up. Now, I think it's look better. Let's look again all over. I think it looks good. And now I'm going to delete this test And then we're going to save this tile Before we save it, I'm gonna show you how you can add the background to the tile So go to this circle and you can see these, these are my color palettes. And go to Disc you can try different backgrounds here. By the holding the circle and changing it in the circle. Or you can choose from your color palette choose the one you like. When you got your color palette, then go to go to Actions then Share. So we're going to upload it to Spoonflower so you can save it with JPEG or PNG file. And remember when you want it with the transparent background, then you're going to need to choose PNG file. Yeah, we are done See you in next lesson. 10. Inspiration and moodboard: Where to find inspiration for your design. Sometimes it's just hard to make art. You want to draw your motif or your pattern You can find even inspiration in your life around you, you can take photo of interesting things around you then draw it when you have time, you can also take a sketchbook with you and draw everything that you give your attention to. Have a walk, look around and take a breath. Maybe some new idea will come. Remember to take photos of everything, even when you see an insect. It also can become your motif, pattern or even some wildflower You can also get inspiration by looking at artworks from other artists. Make sure that you have an account on Pinterest to gather your inspiration and divide them separately into different topics that you can easily find what you want. This mood board I make from Canva.com 00:01:07.340 --> 00:01:11.210 the dandelions in illustration I got from Canva and the photo at the bottom left is a sketch that I made the composition I want for this pattern here is color palette. I want it to have neutral color tone. You can also make a moodboard for yourself by collecting photos illustration and put them into a document like this. in Procreate, you can use it as a reference when you work . The pattern, we're going to make it the next lesson is a kind of pattern that needs references, just because you're going to need to draw different forms of motifs. We just draw everything on the canvas next to each other that they don't touch the edges. Then we're going to move the edges to the center and fill the center with the new motifs that are in the same topic. So make a mood board for yourself and let 's jump into the next lesson. 11. Drawing pattern: With this pattern we also need 4000 by 4000 pixel canvas. But actually it's just optional. You don't want square Canvas. You can make it with Rectangle Canvas and the same method with it. In this lesson, we're just going to have fun with the process. So we just go with a doodle style. Now we're going to import the mood board to the canvas that we can help reference to draw . Actions. then Canvas, then turn on reference. Now we're going to move it to the corner that we can see our canvas. You can adjust this reference to the side that suits you, that you feel comfortable to work with. Now we're going to use the tinderbox 1 1 here. And now we're gonna draw first a dandelion, the white dandelion. I'll just draw a doodle flower. You can see that flower and you just just draw like you paint like this. You don't need to make it really detailed. And the next, the leaves of dandelions, You don't need to make it 100% look like a real dandelion leaves. You can make it yourself something that looks like your style or the way you want to see the leaves of dandelion just like that. So we're going to fill this canvas with dandelion motifs with the yellow and the white dandelions. And the leaves When you draw the leaves and the body of dandelion you should consider, consider to draw in right layer. Makes sure that all flowers in one layer and then on the leaves are in one layer Then when you want to try to change the color it's going to be easier for you to, when you want to change the color of this pattern And now we're going to continue with the flowers. So you can, so you can guess where this comes from. Remember that you make it with the lose tile. Yeah. I adjusted a little bit that brush. Now, another leaf here. Oh, I just realized that it's wrong. It is in wrong layer, so I use my three fingers to touch the screen, then swipe down until I see this. And then" cut the paste" What is made the brings the element to separate layer, and then you can match the right layer. I continue filling this space because I think it has lots of spaces here. Again. Again, it was in the wrong layer, so I just cut in paste to the new layer and then merge it to the right layer. Now with the smaller flowers I just made a backup just made a backup group and then I duplicated that group. And then with the copy group, I just l flattened it because now I'm going to work with the copy, not going to use the placeholder to move the edges from the left and right to the center. And now I'm going to fill the center with new motifs that look the same. I'm going to make a back up for it. And then a new layer. Then I'm going to draw on that layer when I'm sure everything is Okay. I also made it in separate layer too I made to backup for that. Now, the top and the bottom to the center and I also fill that center with more motifs until I'm pleased with that space. Now I made another document And in the new document, I actually much all layers together because it have the backup so I decided to make all layers together. Now you should know that we have here repeating tile Then you can type this tile because You can test this tile before you continue, but I'm sure that it's repeated. Now It is the repeating tile So the thing I want to do is I just want to give it a little bit more details So I, i'm, I'm going to make another layer. And then on that layer I'm going to draw details for this tile. Just try it. But yeah, I decided to help just like that. And then I'm gonna give the least details too some thing simple that everything just don't touch the edges. You're just going to move to the edges, to the center. Three layers. One with a placeholder. Another one is the detail layer. and the tile layer, we just gonna do the same. Sometime it's just hard to move. Sometimes it's going to happen some errors but it's okay. You can undo or you can delete the placeholder layer and then do again. When you merge the layers you're gonna give the same layer to the same group and then you merge them. Then you'll have the separate different layers. Now we continue with the detail layer. We're going to fill our tile Everything is okay. So now we're gonna move the top and the bottom to the center with a same method but first backup And you also fill on the leaf or a flower open doesn't have details Now we're going to test it with the same method. Yes. Now we are done with this. 12. Order your wallpaper from Spoonflower: So now your design is ready. So we're going to jump into Spoonflower.
