Hello, I wonder if anyone could point me in the right direction. I work in Painter pretty often and I'd like to select a pattern (created from a vector or photograph) and then draw with something like the loaded palette knife in order to get the smears one would get from painting with the loaded palette knife over the selected pattern without actually having to draw the pattern on the layer beforehand. I've seen this technique used in a video a while ago but for the life of me cannot figure out how to do it. It feels like I've been through all the brush settings twice!

So any suggestions would be much appreciated =)

Thanks!
