How to Make a Simple Layered Pattern

In this tutorial, I will be working with just one Motif, to create a Repeatable Pattern Design, with the Pattern Maker Tool.

To add depth to the pattern, I will demonstrate a fun, easy process for layering your patterns.

The patterns created from this process, are great for making small-scale gift wrap, stationary products, and scrapbook papers.

Anything with a fixed size will work, as the same pattern (or others) will be layered on top of each other multiple times. The depth and complexity of the pattern, is increased by changing the scale, opacity and blending modes, for each layer.

In this first video, I’ll add color to my Motif.

In the second video, I’ll demonstrate the Patter Maker Tool, and the layering process for the finished design.

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial!
