Pattern experimentation

I learned how to do Pattern repeats in Photoshop this week! Simple block repeats with isolated motifs like this paisley:
and more difficult ones with bleed edges in an offset like these dots and the checkerboard/explosions: and this half-drop: I'm still no pro, but I'm getting more comfortable with photoshop. All of these patterns have been printed onto fabric 8x10's, the single colors over a shibori dyed fabric, and the multis onto tyvek and silk.


  1. That's very impressive. Digital photo manipulation is a black art to me!

  2. These are great. Care to post a tutorial?

  3. working on it Bill! Simple block is up, I'll try to explain half-drop and offset tomorrow maybe.
