I finished recording these screencasts this morning, so get them while they’re hot! ;) There are 4 easy tutorials spanning a few of minutes each. They show you how to make gingham, polka dots, graph and binder paper. I was going to create a screencast showing you how to make diagonal striped patterns, but I changed my mind since it’s easier and faster to use Stripe Generator instead — head on over there if you want diagonal stripes. But for all the other patterns, these tutorials will set you off on the right foot.
I hope you have fun making your own seamless patterns and stationery textures! By the way, these tutorials are best viewed in full screen.
