LETTERING + GRAPHIC
DESIGN LEARNING

To finish up Photoshop month, this week I wanted to share one of my favorite ways to work with watercolors in Photoshop – turning them into seamless texture patterns! If you’ve taken my Watercolor Textures for Graphic Design class over on Skillshare, this week’s tutorial will be a refresher for you, but I’m also sharing how to take the pattern you create and convert it into an Illustrator pattern swatch (check out around 8:20 for that), so there’s something new for everyone 🙂 My newest watercolor texture kit (vol. 3) just went live today, so I’m excited to share textures from the new kit throughout the video – these are my most detailed and colorful ones to date! Click below to get yo’ pattern on!

  • Thank you so much! This is amazing!
    Quick, easy to understand and a lot of information. Great work!

  • I just creates the pattern as you suggested but the white lines remain when I zoom and export.
    Do you have any ideas how to fix this?

  • Hallo Teela,
    I am happy you liked my first post and shared it. But if you do so, you should also share and answer my second one.
    The lines, that appeared in you tutorial at the end (you mentioned, that they disappear when you zoom), don’t disappear when I zoom and they also show in print. If there is no fix for it, the idea of creating patterns is nice, but the method you are suggesting is not working 🙁
