Loving This !!!!

So, in my last post I talked about how I was asked to create
a Pattern Step Out that could be downloaded to the computer
and then be available to print out onto their favorite paper.

I still love, always will, the feeling of pen to paper, but I have to tell you,
I have wasted a ton of paper!!! LOL 

I have an iPad Pro and an Apple Pencil, (thank you hubby!) and my
son showed me this awesome program, Procreate. I have used those tools for 
quite some time and loved how I could practice certain techniques,
getting more comfortable with a pattern. Some of my favorite types of
patterns, or tangles, are from using a grid. So, this almost goes without saying,
The next worksheet I designed was the grid. 
This may seem to you to be very simplistic, but for me having the
dots, or squares, already there just allow me to start experimenting.
This is a screenshot of using it on my iPad Pro.
Now the beauty behind this is that Procreate allows you to
create by using layers. So my drawing these simple W2, Huggins and Pickpocket
tangles are on a second layer. I can turn off the bottom layer, meaning
the grid, and all you will see are my patterns. Sweet!!!!
I can save what I draw and even save as a jpg and print the "photo" of my design.
Printed out on Bristol Vellum Cover Stock 67lb. paper.
Thank you for joining me today! Have a wonderful day!
