Continuing with our blast of the COLOURlovers Creative Guide Series, I bring to you today a video for Getting Started with Seamless Lite, the online seamless pattern template designer here at COLOURlovers.com.

I've gone over each piece of Seamless Lite to give you a base overview, then I delve in to using each of the tools and add some good sanity-saving tips and tricks to get the most out of your first experience using the template designer.
I want to emphasize two of the biggest sanity-saving tips I have:
Saving Custom Shapes that make up your full template, ensures you can more easily go back in and re-design a template without having to start from total scratch. Trust me!
Don't overthink making a template! Stick with geometric ideas to get yourself started.
My BEST TIP for getting pattern idea's is to google, "quilt block patterns" and check out the many images that are made from extremely simple shapes, but make up extraordinary design concepts, especially when repeated - much like a quilt.
I cover how to color a pattern basics, plus a great trick to coloring better. Then I cover how to apply a certain palette to a pattern template.
Wow it's really here! NEXT WEEK - We are bringing you a fun and easy contest with a very simple idea that everyone can feel confident contributing to.
Pixlr will be the focus and brand we are partnering up with for this fantastic color inspired event!! You will not have to know any Pixlr knowledge, this is an inspiration-project for them more based on how your colors in a palette work together. More information to come next week on that.
We will have prizes and multiple winners! Prizes are not brand-specific but a vast array of items any human would love to have worth $100 value (range).
I am not going to go in to all the details today, however, I will say that you will want to know the basics of pattern template making - for real - absolute basics (make a triangle).... and you will want to know how to make a basic palette but you are more than welcome to utilize the more robust features of COPASO to create stunning blends for this as well.
Until Next week! Here is the full video Guide List:
