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.

Create your own seamless repeating pattern

How would you like to create your own seamless repeating patterns so that you can make your own papers with the pattern you created?

The method I will show you can be done, I believe, in both Photoshop Elements and Photoshop CS. As long as what you are using has Define Pattern and the Filter / Offset, then you can do this. I am pretty sure, at least the newer versions, Elements has these.

I have a movie that shows you how to do this. I used several flowers that I have created to make my pattern. You can use anything you want. The Custom Shape Tool has some good images you can use for your pattern. You could even just use some dots or circles or some such. 

Here is the movie. It is a little over 11 minutes long. You can make your patterns more quickly than this once you see how to do it.

I hope you find this informative and useful.

Live life fully.
