Surface Pattern Blog Hop


Last month I took a wonderful class over at Creative Live. This class helped me in a lot of ways when it came to learning how to use illustrator properly and how to create a cohesive collection of surface patterns for multiple applications.
Today I wanted to show you what I made in class. Each one of these items are made as separate assignments. 
I learned about creating mood boards and creating color stories from my photographs. I completed a mini collection of six patterns and a collection of 20 elements that I have used to create a digital scrapbook kit that you can download from my Etsy Shop. 
The course information can be found here on the Course page. This class is available for you to purchase for anytime access and is a great addition to any of your continuing education library. You can download the class to watch it at anytime.

I really feel like the things that I learned in this course really have helped me to work more smoothly and efficiently. I would recommend  this course to anyone that has an interest in surface pattern design as Bonnie talks you through the process step by step and really gives some great insight into the industry. 

If you would like to find out more about Bonnie you can find her all over the web at:
