Repeat Pattern

I wanted to experiment with making a repeat pattern from a little drawing I did, just to learn the skills so I could apply them to my current Graphics Project, where I want to create wrapping paper by repeating my logo.

Repeat Pattern.
These are the steps I took to create these:
  • Firstly I rezised my image to a easier comprehensible size in this case 300 x 400 pixels (resolution = 150).
  • I then adjusted my image with the Levels and Curves.
  • Then I seleted Offset (on the Filter Menu) and added half the size on each side and I made sure I selected Wrap Round option. 
  • I created a much bigger new document (2400 x 3200 pixels).
  • To create the repeat pattern, I selected all of my new image and copied and pasted it onto the new document, many times and aligning each piece.
  • To finish, I flatten my image to make it all one layer.
To change the colours of the design and make different versions, I used the Hue/Saturation Adjustment.

I really enjoyed creating these images and it wasn't too hard to understand. :)
