Getting The Most Out Of Your Hobbies With Your Pet

Getting The Most Out Of Your Hobbies With Your Pet

Getting The Most Out Of Your Hobbies With Your Pet

Many people enjoy different hobbies, from crafting to baking, but you may not realize just how beneficial they can be for your mental health. Hobbies can help you beat stress and anxiety by structuring your free time, allowing you to feel as though you’ve actually added hours to the day. They can also help you stay social and meet new people.

When you have a pet, you might find it harder to commit as much time to your favorite hobbies as you’d like. Animals need lots of love and attention, and often they don’t like sharing it with anything else. One great way to avoid this is to merge the two. Think of some things you can do with your pet that satisfy your creative needs while you’re spending time with him.

Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Get outside

Dogs love the great outdoors, so take him out and let him enjoy an activity with you, such as gardening, jogging, or hiking. Just make sure you take precautions for his safety and give him something to do if you’re in the yard so he won’t disrupt your gardening; for instance, give him a place to dig if he enjoys it, just make sure it’s well away from your flowerbeds.

When you’re doing something like jogging or hiking, make sure to bring water for your pet and allow him to rest when you do. Stay off blacktopped surfaces in the summer, as these can be harmful to the sensitive pads on dogs’ feet, and keep him close if you’re in an area where wild animals are likely to come around.

Get artsy

If you like to paint or are interested in photography, get your dog involved by taking his picture or painting his portrait. Take him to the park and let him play in the leaves while you snap some pictures, or let him snooze by the fireplace while you paint.

Get crafty

If you enjoy crafting, look for ways you can do what you love with your dog by your side. Buy plain white food and water bowls and paint a whimsical design on them, or crochet a sweater for him. Sew a dog bed, or make one from upcycled materials such as an old suitcase. There are tons of things you can make with your dog in mind; think outside the box and get crafty!

Go for a swim

Most dogs love the water, so head to the nearest lake or dog-friendly beach and hit the water! Swimming is great exercise for both of you and it’s a wonderful opportunity to bond with your pet. Just make sure that wherever you go, your dog will be safe. Check the weather reports to make sure the water won’t be too cold or rough.

Plan a camping trip

If you enjoy sleeping under the stars, consider taking your dog with you. Many pets love being outside, and you’ll be thankful for one another’s company after the sun sets. Just be sure to take the right precautions for your dog and bring along any supplies he’ll need to stay comfortable, plus extra food and water.

Getting your pet more involved in your hobbies is a great way to get closer and show him how much you love him. Dogs are very sensitive to your feelings, so when you’re happy and relaxed, he will be, too.

Create Patterns in Illustrator and How to Make a Seamless Pattern in Illustrator Tutorial

Create Patterns in Illustrator

It is pretty simple to create patterns in Illustrator. Most tutorials simply tell you how but today I will not only tell you how to make a repeating pattern, but also how to make a seamless pattern in Illustrator, edit a pattern in Illustrator, and save your pattern as a swatch. It is so important and beneficial when you know how to do all of these things in Adobe Illustrator.

Who needs to know how to create patterns in Illustrator?

Anyone who is interested in how to create patterns in Illustrator probably already has an idea of what they would do with that pattern. Graphic designers, web designers, illustrators, and textile designers need to know how to make a repeating pattern because their daily lives involve patterns. Crafters, scrapbookers, and DIY-ers would also be benefitted by knowing how to create patterns in Illustrator.

When or How would you use a pattern?

Many common uses for patterns include:

  • Art and Design
  • Mugs and Home Accessories
  • Invitation backgrounds
  • Photography overlays
  • Web backgrounds
  • Scrapbooking paper
  • Architecture / Building Facades
  • Decorations

Do you want to know how to create patterns in Illustrator? It is a simple process but requires a few steps. By following this simple tutorial, you will create patterns in Illustrator in no time!

How to make a repeating pattern in Illustrator

Step 1: Create a new file. An even number like 12in x 12in is ideal.

Create pattern in illustrator

Step 2: Have your image, shape, or design that you want to use ready in Illustrator. The simpler the design, the easier it will be to make a seamless pattern later on.

Create pattern in illustrator

Step 3: Place your design on your new artboard that you will use to create a pattern.

Create pattern in illustrator

Step 4: Select your graphic. Then select Object → Pattern → Make. You now know how to make a repeating pattern in Illustrator! Follow the steps below on how to make a seamless pattern in illustrator and edit a pattern in Illustrator.

Create pattern in illustrator

How to make a seamless pattern in Illustrator

Step 5: In the Pattern Options dialogue box, adjust your settings accordingly. Some numbers you would use to divide 12 would be 2, 3, 4, or 6 in order to get whole numbers. Any of these numbers will work. This means any of these numbers will be able to evenly distribute your pattern in a seamless manner. I used Width: 3in. and Height: 3in.

Step 6: It can be very tricky to try to make a seamless pattern from the Hex by Column or Hex by Row option. It is much easier to use the simple grid options when wanting to make a pattern seamless. Grid, Brick by Row, or Brick by Column will all be easiest to work with.

Create patterns in illustrator

Step 7: Space out your objects where you want them. Overlapping objects out of the pattern board range can make it more difficult to create a seamless effect unless they are perfectly aligned.

Step 8: Select Done when finished.

Step 9: This creates your swatch. You will find your new pattern swatch in your Swatches Panel.

Step 10: Create a square or simple object to test your pattern. You will need to select your shape and then click on your pattern swatch. This should fill your shape with your new pattern that you just created.

At this point I created a simple color palette that I want to start thinking about.

How to edit a pattern in Illustrator

Step 11: Select the object that you used to fill with your pattern. Then select Object → Pattern → Edit Pattern.

How to edit a pattern in illustrator

Step 12: Once you are finished editing click Done again.

Step 13: Keep making edits until you are satisfied. When you are satisfied you must save your new swatch panel to access the pattern later on. To do this you will need to see your Swatches Panel. If you do not see your Swatches Panel you can open it by selecting Window → Swatches. Then you will need to select the very first button with an arrow pointing down. It looks like 3 books with the right book leaning left. Then you will need to select Save Swatches. When you do this it should automatically go to your Swatches area of Illustrator files. Name the new swatch panel what you wish and then click Save.

How to make a seamless pattern in illustrator

How to make a seamless pattern in illustrator

Step 14: You can easily check if your pattern is seamless or not. Simply create a 1:1 ratio square (for example 12in x 12in). You will then copy your square to have 4 squares – 2 on top and 2 on bottom that are evenly touching and meet in the middle. You will then select all of your squares and click on your new swatch. If they are not seamless you can go back to edit the pattern and check your measurements and complexity of your pattern. You may have to simplify your pattern if it is too complex. Now you know how to make a seamless pattern in Illustrator!

How to make a seamless pattern in illustrator

There you have it! You now know how to make a repeating pattern in Illustrator, how to make a seamless pattern in Illustrator, edit a pattern in Illustrator, and save a pattern in Illustrator! I have included the pattern used for this tutorial in my freebies. You can use it for personal or commercial use with a link back to my website. Enjoy!

Your mind has now expanded into the glamorous world of patterns in Illustrator! I hope you learned something new about how to create patterns in Illustrator in this tutorial!

Clipping Masks and Compound Paths in Adobe Illustrator

Clipping Masks and Compound Paths in Adobe Illustrator

Clipping masks in Adobe Illustrator are something that I use nearly every day. Most designers of any kind will need to be able to use a clipping mask at some point. Today I will talk about what it is, where to find the option, why you would use it, and what sort of projects it is ideal for.

First a clipping mask is a lot like what it sounds like. You would use it to “clip” around a particular area. In the end it is sort of like a layering effect that will take place. Shapes are an easy way to make use of a clipping mask. Text is also very common. Using a clipping mask is great for effects that you want to use in your project. It is also ideal for masking around exact shapes. Take the shape of a heart for instant. If I wanted to have a texture effect of an glitter image I could use a clipping mask.

Steps to Create a Clipping Mask

You will find the option to use a clipping mask under: Object > Clipping Mask > Make. You can also use the Command 7 shortcut on the Mac. I usually right click my mouse and select “Make Clipping Mask.” Make sure the image you want is behind your object. You can move the layer to the bottom or Right Click > Arrange > Send to Back. Select both the image and your object and then make a clipping mask.

Ocassionally you may need to group your elements, unite them through the Pathfinder Tool, or outline your text before a clipping mask will work. Sometimes especially when using text or complex shapes you must make your elements a compound path first. For instance, if I outline my text my Clipping Mask no longer works (shown below). However, I can make my text a compound path by going to Object > Compound Path > Make or Command 8 on Mac. I can then create a clipping mask with no problem.

As you can see, this is not the result that we wanted. So in this case we can easily release our clipping mask by right clicking and then selecting “Release Clipping Mask.”

When you would use a Clipping Mask

When or why would you use a clipping mask? Use it to create effects such as a texture or image effect. You would use it to make exact paths such as a round shape. It as also an easy way to finalize a design that may otherwise seem too dull. Use a clipping mask to keep your art from going on to another artboard. You can also use a clipping mask to create mock ups in Illustrator that would otherwise need to be done in Photoshop.

Clipping masks are ideal for creating stationary such as postcards, posters, and invitations. Wall décor or prints use clipping masks all of the time. Even branding can be done with a clipping mask if it is well thought out and done correctly. There are a ton of reasons why you would use a clipping mask.

In conclusion I hope this tutorial helped you learn how to make a clipping mask or that you learned something new about the process. The texture and font that I used to create these examples were created by me and are released to the public domain. Feel free to download them and use it for whatever you want!
