Let's Make A Repeat Pattern
✏️ Everyone can doodle right? ✏️
...For sure...so let me show you how to change your day dreaming doodles into a funky repeating pattern!
You will need, a brew (optional), paper, pencil, rubber (if you go wrong), pens, Sellotape, scissors and a scalpel
⭐️ Step 1 - Doodle! Fill up the middle part of your page with lots of fun drawings or motifs.
⭐️ Step 2 - Carefully cut the paper through the middle and two sides, creating 4 quarters. Avoid cutting through any of your drawn motifs - just cut around them.
⭐️ Step 3 - Turn the 4 pieces of paper over, swapping the sides so your drawings are now back to back ⬅️➡️
A nice blank area should be in the middle.
Stick the picture together with Sellotape.
⭐️ Step 4 - Flip the paper over and fill in the empty space with more wonderful drawings!
⭐️ Step 5 - When your finished and the paper is full, carefully use the scalpel to slice the Sellotape so the paper is back into its original 4 quarters.
⭐️Step 6 - reassemble the paper to its original layout and stick the page back together.
👏🏻 That's it....Simple! 👏🏻
Your pattern should now repeat
You can trace over the repeat pattern again in blackout pen if you want to create a screen print transparency.
