What is a pattern overlay?
A pattern overlay is essentially a digital paper but without a colored background. So in the example I’m going to show you in the video below, it’s just the white polka dots. If you want to follow along with the video, you can download the polka dot pattern overlay from the free printables library. If you’ve already subscribed, you can login to the free printables library using the password that was sent in your initial sign-up confirmation email.
If you don’t have Photoshop, you can purchase and download it here (my affiliate link).
