Many of us use a repeating pattern on our scrapbooking layouts to create a background for our pages. Photoshop comes with many patterns for you to use. And, you can get a lot of them from the Internet. But, wouldn't it be nice to quickly create your own pattern to exactly fit what you want to do for your page?
I have made this video to show you one way of creating your own repeating patterns. I have used Photoshop CS6 to create the two patterns shown in the video. You can use earlier versions of Photoshop CS; but, I am not sure if Photoshop Elements has the Filter Offset. It may, I just don't know.
Since it is close to Valentine's Day, in the video, I use red hearts while creating the repeating pattern. I show you how to create these two repeating patterns.
And, I will show you how to use these patterns to make your 12 x 12-inch layout paper. Such as this one.
And, if you feel a little adventurous, I even show you how to do something like this with these two patterns I make in the video.
In the video I used a heart shape to create the repeating patterns. You can use any shape or element that you want to use. A friend of mine, Pats, emailed me some swirls she had made on her iPad Mini. I used them to create a pattern and create this paper.

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.
