Design with Found Objects
A collection of objects (like feathers or stamps or recipes) and a scanner can be all you need to get started, without having to worry about about your drawing skills.
Design with Photos
Photos are another easy way to get inspiration for a design—and they are plentiful! Whatever a camera can capture, you can translate into a cool surface design.
Design with Drawings, Paintings & Prints
The drawings your kids create, the doodles and sketches that come from your imagination, the vintage postcard—it’s all teeming with design possibility!
Design with Words, Text & Layers
In this chapter, we introduce the ideas of working with text and working in layers, which means creating the different parts of a design as separate elements.
We head in a slightly different direction in this chapter and teach you how to work with vector-based images—artwork created solely on the computer.
Design Cut & Sew and Whole Cloth
Here we introduce a technique called “whole cloth” design or “whole surface” design, because your design takes up the entirety of what you are printing, without repeating.
