Want to learn some techniques that help make repeats faster and easier? Does color matching on your printer plague you? Or, are you still stumped on how to make seamless overlapping motifs on the computer?
At our next meeting, SPDG members Sarah Schwartz and Jill Turney will take you through several techniques in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator that will boost your digital surface pattern design skills.
Sarah will be demonstrating a way to help make creating repeats faster, easier, and more accurately. She will also be showing us a technique to achieve a quick, accurate color match on printers.
Jill will be giving a demo on how to use the masking tools in PhotoShop to create seamless overlapping motifs. This is a great trick to use with loose designs and watercolors. And, as an added bonus, she'll share some cool effects that she's been able to apply to her motifs using the "puppet" tool.
You should never stop learning, so be sure to join us next Thursday for some continuing education!
