I created this class because I know how difficult it can be to create surface pattern designs that keep ‘Your’ signature look when vectorizing.  As a painter, I really struggled with this and know how hard it can be to find your place when you don’t think the artwork really looks like you created it. 

So, In this class, I’ll show you how to take your hand painted motifs and turn them into a surface pattern design in Photoshop using Smart Objects.  This is the perfect way to create while retaining all your beautiful hand painted texture, gradients, and detail that represents ‘Your’ signature style.  

I’d love to see what you create so please upload your pattern or patterns here so I can comment.  And, if you share to Instagram, I’d love for you to tag me, #melaniesvl so I can comment and share there too.  

I look forward to seeing your projects.
