Wednesdoodles: Pattern Making Continued…


Hi guys!!

So last week I was showing you some images of  floral watercolour drawings I had been working on for a really great project with The Flower Shop Ltd. I quickly got to work at learning how to create a repeat pattern with a watercolor painting that I made.

So I started out with the painting, brought it into photoshop, deleted the paper background (which I struggled with but was super exciting to see once I finally got it!) and then got to work on making a pattern tile.


Basically how you make a pattern tile is by first slicing your image in half vertically, flipping those two pieces and putting the image back together, and then slicing that image horizontally and flipping those two pieces and putting them together. I did all of my slicing and re-arranging in photoshop. If you are interested HERE is a really good and simple instruction!


What you end up with when you repeat that tile is a seamless repeat pattern! You don’t even understand how excited I was to see this all come together! The Flower Shop asked me to create a pattern that they could use for multiple purposes. I got to use the pattern to create their new business cards. Note the logo was made by another designer, and I designed the biz cards.

It was such a fun project and I learned ALOT!! I can’t wait to keep going with pattern making. I think my next little project will be to make a nice desktop background out of that floral pattern so stay tuned!

  1. What a cool pattern! It’s so pretty. I love the colors and brush work.(I know I’ve commented on every post I’ve seen but I wanted to put more appreciation into this one. 🙂 )
