How to use the iPad pro for your quilt patterns and illustrations using Adobe Sketch.

Originally posted on I am Pam Holland:
I’ve been traveling for almost 3 months and many of you have followed the travels, the photographs, the illustrations and the blog.     During that time and at my lectures and classes, I promised  that I would share some of the techniques I use to do my patterns and illustrations. In January this year, my creative life changed when I purchased the new iPad pro. I bought the largest screen and the largest memory iPad that I could. Then came the wonderful apple pencil. It really has taken me almost all of the year to work through the applications that work in my favor. The main one I use is Adobe sketch. So to the steps. Open Adobe sketch, the pens are on one side and the sketch layer on the other. Press the + sign and a new image layer sign appears. Click on the image layer and you can import a photo into the page. I’m going to draw a camel, and so she appears. Press ‘done’ up…

Just a little Information.

Stay tuned for the new tour information on our Textile tours to India 2018, Thailand 2018, India  2019 and Guatemala.   Possibly more.  These are the educational tours where everyone participates. I will teach art, photography and a little about Textiles, but we will have tutors  to take you through many of the  techniques of dying, printing and stitching and the amazing history of textiles.

Lets return to the Houston Quilt Festival.

I’ve been traveling and it isn’t as easy to write an extensive blog each day. Depending on the speed of the internet in my hotel it often takes time to add the images.

So here we are 2 months later and now I can add the images I missed.

I’ll begin with Houston and I’ll add the few images I took of the  Van Gogh Cherrywood Challenge 2017. I think there were 465 submissions and each and every one I saw was stunning.

A new link.

For my friends waiting for more blogs, it’s difficult to write it on the road because sometimes the internet is slow.   If you go to my FB link    http://www.facebook.com.iampamholland/ You will find them.
