Creating a Repeat Pattern

I finished my blue florals and made a repeat pattern with them – I use a free editing software called GIMP.  I scan the original painting as a TIFF so that I can manipulate size/cropping/etc. then I create the pattern frame by frame, adding in extra little ants ; )  Here’s what the program looks like:

After I’m done making little adjustments, I save the finished pattern as a JPG.  Now the pattern can be applied to all sorts of products in my Society6 shop.  (I hope to make it available on Spoonflower as fabric too!)
