Welcome to EarlK Design!


The EarlK Design blog consists mainly of entries that show how to do things using Adobe Photoshop that I hope you will find helpful and give your creative mind more tools to work with.

I use Adobe Photoshop CS6, and sometimes Adobe Illustrator CS5, Lightroom 5, and Corel Painter X. However, I believe that much of what I show can be done using Photoshop Elements.

Creating an Argyle Pattern in Photoshop CS4, Part 1

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CINDY!

Today, July 31, 2010 is the birthday of a friend on mine who lives in Maryland. I wish you a most Happy Birthday, Cindy. I am dedicating this Episode 2 Other Days With Earl: Argyle Designing, Part 1 to you. Enjoy your day! My love to you.

Recently, I saw some digital scrapbook pages that were designed using an argyle pattern for the background paper. There was a reference to an article describing making the argyle pattern, but I couldn't get access to the article. So I decided to create my own method to create an argyle pattern using Adobe Photoshop CS4 on my iMac.

I am sure there are many ways to do this, but this way I found worked easily for me. I want to share this method with you. Since I try to give a lot of information about how and why you do something in Photoshop, my article got a little long. I was planning to have it all in one article, but the length made me decide to do it in two parts.

In Episode 2-Other Days With Earl: Argyle Designing, Part 1, I show you how to create this argyle pattern to use in creating this argyle paper. I show you how easy it is to make a pattern master that can be used over and over to create different color combinations. This is an example of how the pattern looks on a 12 x 12-inch, 300 ppi paper.

If you are interested in seeing how I did this, you can download a .pdf file from box dot com. I use a lot of space and try to make things large enough so you can see it on the page. So my .pdf files may have a lot of pages but they really aren't that long to read. You can get Episode 2-Other Days With Earl: Argyle Designing, Part 1, BY CLICKING HERE. The download is a .pdf file that is about 13MB in size. I hope you like it.

As I said, I was planning to have more information in this article, but I decided to split it up into two parts. In Argyle Designing, Part 2, I will show you how to use the Polygonal Lasso Tool to help create the argyle pattern. I will show some different designs. Here is an example from Part 2.
Part 2 is not written yet, so you can't download it yet. It will be in a near future post to this blog.

I hope that you are finding some of these items from my blog interesting. If you would like to know how to do something, leave me a comment and I will see if I know how or can find out how and make it a topic for one if my future posts. But, remember, I am using Photoshop CS4 and not using Photoshop Elements. Frequently a person using Elements can translate what I do in CS4 and do it in Elements. However, I am not always sure that what I do will work in Elements.

Until the next time, enjoy life!
Earl
