In this section, I'll describe how to create different graphic patterns. Before you try them however, here's a tip you may find useful...
Tip for Placing Graphics using the Internet Explorer Glitch Technique:
The Internet Explorer Glitch Technique used for placing details off the garment does not work for placing GRAPHICS off the garment...all parts of graphics that fall outside the garment will always disappear. However, the glitch technique DOES work for easily placing graphics ON the garment where it is otherwise difficult to place them (like on the edges of the garment). Usually to place graphics on the edges of the garment, you'd have to avoid your cursor landing outside the garment when placing the graphic, or the entire graphic would disappear. So you would have to place the graphic somewhere in the middle of the garment, pick the graphic up by the edge and inch it as far out on the edge of the garment as you could without your cursor going outside of the garment. But it's much easier with the Internet Explorer glitch technique, because you don't have to worry about your cursor being off the garment when you place the graphic! Just place it like you would a detail using the I.E. glitch as I described earlier. Try it, it works!
HOW TO CREATE "V" SHAPED DIAGONAL STRIPES PATTERN:
You create this pattern with the flat-colored, solid heart graphic (the one without shine). The bottom of the heart forms the "arrow" lines (or V shape lines).
1. Choose the base color of your garment, and also the color you want your lines to be. Let's say white is your base color and black is your line color.
2. Make the heart graphic as large as you can. Turn it black (line color).
3. Starting at the bottom of the garment, place the lines at the base of the heart where you want the V-diagonal lines to start.
4. Now take another heart graphic and turn it white (base color). Layer it on top and slightly above the black one, overlapping it. Since this second heart is the same color as your garment, it disappears and leaves you with two black diagonal lines forming a "V" shape.
5. Keep layering hearts this way, alternating color, until you finish.
NOTE: Sometimes the garment is wider than the largest heart graphic. In this instance, you'll need to overlap several hearts of the line color off to the upper right and left of your first center heart so that there is a continuous straight edge (just like when you layer beads to get a solid shape and you want it to have a straight edge). Then you'll continue this sequence with your base color, then line color, etc.
