Using Templates: Patterns & Plaid Paper, video

You can start with one of my tiling patterns to make this tutorial easiest.

(A video follows at the end if you prefer to watch that.)

1. Recolor the stripes using the easier recoloring method.
2. Go to Edit --> Define Pattern and click "ok" in the box that pops up.

3. Open a new canvas in the size you want your paper to be.
4. Create a new layer.
5. Using the Fill Tool (G), select "Pattern" mode and choose your recently saved pattern from the small drop down menu.

6. Fill the new layer with the pattern.
7. Duplicate the layer and rotate it 90 degrees.

8. With the new layer highlighted, change the blending mode to "Mutliply"

Hi !
Unfortunately the links in this tutorial does not work smiley :

Error message:
"The requested URL /marisa-lerin/designs/plaid-33-pattern-template-photoshop-pattern was not found on this server.'" (for the first)
"The requested URL /forum/tutorials/easy-recoloring-photoshop was not found on this server." (for the 2nd)

Thanks! The links are broken for now until we move the site to it's final resting place ( Sorry for the inconvenience! Try searching the templates for patterns for now.

I never thought of flipping it smiley How easy smiley

Thanks for the blending mode tip! I bet that makes it a lot better!

I am so excited to find this tutorial!!!! I only with I 'd found it last week when I searched endlessly for the perfect plaid paper, ugh! I ended up settling for one that was close and adjusting the hue and saturation. Not exactly what I wanted, but it served. Now I can make my own smiley
