I taught myself how to create a repeating pattern in Photoshop last night. It’s not as hard as you’d think! You just design a square, then cut it up into fours and switch the squares around a little. I designed the pattern above for the back of a Halloween card, but then I had some fun cutting jack o lantern faces in Photoshop. I love Halloween. I talked a little more about the pattern in last Sunday’s post about making art for the process.  :)

Download and print out the plain version below and cut out some of your own faces! It makes for some fun DIY crafting time and decorations.

You can watch me draw the bat from the original design in the video below. I ended up just using candy corns, pumpkins, and bones.
