I thought I’d share a little bit of the process of how I create the designs in my shop.
I use Adobe Spark and start out by choosing a color palette and background layout.
Then I add icons/shapes and sometimes text.
The last step is my favorite, I add a pattern icon and fill it with a transparent color. Sometimes the pattern is on top of the shapes, and sometimes behind them, depending on the design and the effect I’m after.
Of course, the process is rarely this linear. Sometimes I switch up the color palette or background layout while I’m adding the shapes. Or I might choose the pattern first and then the shapes.
