Introducing My First Skillshare Course

A few weeks ago I did something really scary... I hit PUBLISH on my very first online course. Extremely exciting, but also very scary. I gave myself one day to freak out and then started proclaiming it to the world without one ounce of regret. Creating a course wan't easy, but it sure was fun! It made me realize how much I enjoy teaching and how addicting editing film can be (never thought i'd actually enjoy editing...go figure).

 Example of the drawn icons i used to create the finished repeat.

As the name states, the class is all about how you can turn your drawings into a beautiful pattern. If you ever wondered how to use Adobe Photoshop to design patterns while staying true to the hand drawn feel then this class is for you. In it I show you how to isolate your lines, create a repeat, and color your lines quickly and easily.

The course is pretty awesome if I do say so myself, but I may be biased so don't take my word for it...just take a peek at some of the reviews it has received in the past few weeks.

Love this class! It covers a lot of the basics so even beginning artists can pop out a fun pattern in no time. I’m fairly experienced with Photoshop but even so, this class covers tricks I never knew I could do. Would definitely recommend this class to anyone who wants to get creative!

Thank you to everyone who has already enrolled. I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone creates! How about you? Is there something scary but totally awesome that you are working on? I'd love to hear all about it in the comments below.

Hey team! I have three (soon to be four) garments I still need to photograph for the blog, but here's a new pattern I'm currently working on. My dad's a photographer and has been looking for a camera themed phone case, so since I'm such an amazing daughter I gladly took on the task of creating a pattern.

I actually took a few progress shots this time (yay me!). Cameras can be kind of weird to draw. I'm on to the color and should have it done by sometime next week. A friend of mine mentioned that she thought It'd look great as a letterpress print and I'm strongly considering getting letterpress prints done of this pattern and maybe a few others. If you'd be interested in buying a print let me know.

Holidaze will be coming to an end soon :( But on the bright side today you can receive $5 off All phone cases plus free shipping. Click the ^^ pic ^^ to treat yo self.
