Aqua Tropical Leaf Pattern

Aqua Tropical Leaf Pattern - student project

I created my elements in Procreate then used Image Trace In Illustrator to proceed with the pattern design. I used the grid selection in the pattern tool. I wonder if there is a way to achieve the same results with this process using a half-drop repeat?

Thank you so much Maja for sharing your process, I really enjoyed the class and I love your pattern designs! I'm looking forward to taking your Pattern Collection Class.
