I\u2019ll be teaching you how to create this eye catching bling bling effect in illustrator. You will learn
how to create the texture and apply it to any text. So let\u2019s get started\u2026
1. Drawing the Bling Bling Pattern

First, you will need to turn on the grid by pressing Ctrl/Command+\u2019. Also make sure to turn on
View>Snap to Grid. This will enable you to snap your graphics to the grid. Let\u2019s start by drawing
a triangle using the Pen Tool. Next, apply a gradient from light pink to dark pink. Draw another
triangle beside it in facing down. Apply a white gradient to it.

Select both triangles and hold Alt/Option and drag a copy beside it. Press Ctrl/Command+D to
automate duplicate more copies until you have a row. Select the whole row and drag a copy down
and move it slight to the right as shown.

Select both rows and drag more copies down until you formed a pattern. Using the rectangle tool,
draw a square that will determine the area of repetition for the pattern. Make sure the top and
bottom will tile properly. Sane goes for both the left and right sides. Randomly select some of the
triangles and change the tint to give more variety to the pattern.

Once the pattern is done, select the square and set the Stroke to none. Press
Ctrl/Command+shift+[ to send it to the bottom layer. This will determine the repeat area when
you create your pattern swatch. Select all the shapes and resize it smaller by pressing Shift. Open
up your swatches and drag your pattern to the swatches. Your pattern is now created.

2. Applying the Texture to Text
