Beginners Guide Part 6

Filler patterns – you can never have enough of them in your collection!


Instead of filling an area with circles like you would using Tipple, try spirals! Some people prefer drawing spirals from the inside out, others draw from the outside to the inside.

For a quick fill, try Ripped Screen:

Staying with the linear option, try Nipa or Diva Dance

Crescent Moon is a classic.

And for a more organic feel, try Carpet Daisy, Leaf Explosion or Vivid.

To exercise with Filler patterns, create a Duotangle – pick one of the organic filler patterns as the focus of your tile. Then fill the surrounding area with another filler pattern.
