Whew! I had a weekend of learning! One of my goals is to learn surface design; for that goal, I get to learn Affinity. This weekend I learned more about how to use Affinity in pattern design and let me tell you I had some issues that took some time to figure out.
One way to create a pattern is to use Procreate to draw your artwork in and then move it to Affinity. When I went to put it into Affinity I was getting double lines. Lo and behold you need to pay attention when overlapping the layers where you move your artwork.
So after hours of working on this problem, I figured it out. I am happy with my first design in Affinity. There are a few ladybugs covered by leaves, but I guess you could say they are hiding.
Could you see this pattern on anything that you would use such as a journal, a pillow, or a tea towel?
