This is my new favorite thing: using the color effects but with the pencil (not applying to the full design). I will explain with a quick example! Let’s say I want to provide a new color for my “China Ink Flowers” collection (that you can find here).
For some (many…) patterns, I will apply the color variation (using the magic wand) to the full layer and change the background. Result will be good (like the picture above) BUT you can play a little bit more with the wand feature to “paint” with a brush this variation!
Here are the steps:
The pencil will allow you to apply the effect with… the pencil! Not the whole layer will change.
Once you have the brush selected – play with the Hue, Saturation and/or the brightness and try it! When you have effects you wanted, you can apply (click one finger on the void to see the menu)
Hope you will enjoy this trick – it’s very useful for recolonization of certain areas that you find too dark or adjust certain areas of your pattern! Enjoy!
