I'm a bit obsessed with pretty patterns these days. Especially floral patterns like this set from Design Cuts.
An absolute fav.
In today's quick, zip tutorial I show you how I quickly convert the seamless patterns included in this pack into .PAT files for quick filling of any size and shape.
If you didn't see my Design Cuts class on using Creative Cloud libraries and/or bridge in the timeline section, check out the second video below. ♡
It’s easy to get caught in the thinking of ‘all the things’.
The idea comes in.
The imagination starts to flow.
You pick up your phone and start scrolling for extra inspiration.
The more you look, the more possibilities you find.
Oh, there’s this and this, and what if I did this?
Before long the original idea is lost in the looking and thinking.
Enter inspiration overload.
Leaving you stuck in a possibilities thought-loop.
The only way out (and often the last thing we do) is to TAKE ACTION.
Be still my heart...
is what I was thinking as I scrolled through this special Festive bundle from Design Cuts.
There are so many lovely things inside ... but my favorite is the stained glass alphabet and graphics collection by Everlasting Story.
These papers alone... I mean seriously.
Woke to frost ...
Lingered a little longer in our cozy bed. Til it was past time to get up.
Pulled on an extra-long cardi and shuffled down the stairs.
Breakfast...eggs and a keto mug bread. (so good)
Then out the door...
Out the corner of my eye... the dill patch.
2 quick yanks, and off we went...
The morning light waiting for us as we walked through the studio door.
The studio was so chilly... we needed a little bump of heat to warm the bones.
What was that? The furnace.
My immediate response.
All that gratitude went poof just like that..
It's amazing how quickly I can shift from one feeling to the next.
From so grateful to woe is me?
'Please, enough already Lord.'
John's just come up from checking things out...
He's got this. We're good.
All in a day...and it's only just noon.
today a Lr Start to Finish tutorial and the autumnal texture pack...
It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted. How are you? I hope you’re keeping well and making the most of this upside-down time.
I’m still here. No summer getaways this year. (who am I kidding...I rarely take summer getaways). : )
The truth is I’ve been full-on immersed in the Inner Circle and loving every minute of it.
Oh my word, it’s so much more than I imagined it to be.
What started as a space to share short tutorials and some digital downloads... has evolved into the most amazing community learning space I’ve ever had the privilege to host.
I’ve said this before. It’s a bit like Netflix for creatives but so much more.
And if you’ve yet to join us, you really outta pop over and check out the details. We’d love to have you in our community. Watch your inbox for an invite to an upcoming INNER CIRCLE LIVE class invite. It'll be free to the first 50 people who sign-up.
