New Chevron Patterns

Pink Roses in Anzures 2 Chevron 1 Shower Curtain by Christopher Johnson | Society6:

This last week I've been working on some new pattern designs more for products than prints. Above is a link to one of my Chevron designs as a shower curtain.  It was much more complicated to make a chevron design than I had imagined. I tried to do it with plugins, but I had problems so I had to separate it into several steps. I had to extract and position the colors as stripes, apply the zigzag and then reposition the colored stripes to align correctly. I have two basic versions with and without texture.  I might make a version where the original artwork shows through instead of stripes, but that will probably take a few more days of work to get right.
