Pattern 73

Monday, April 27, 2015
This pattern combines one of my kaleidoscope patterns with one of my quilt block based patterns.  Here is how I created it.

Step 1 - Create a new two inch by two inch file.

Step 2 - Select the Paint Bucket tool with the Pattern box checked in the Options Bar.  I selected my Pattern #6 to fill in the space.  See the pattern from my blog post on January 14, 2015.  My first image below shows this step.

Step 3 - Create a new layer.  Layer -> New Layer.  Now use the Paint Bucket tool again to fill in the new layer with my Pattern #12 from my blog post on January 20.  You can see the result of this pattern fill in my second image below.

Step 4 - Merge the two layers.  Layer -> Merge Visible.

Step 5 - Modify the colors.  Enhance -> Adjust Color -> Adjust Hue/Saturation.  Check the Colorize box and play with changing the colors.  You can see my color changes in my third image below which is also my finished pattern.

Step 6 - Now Select -> All, and Edit -> Define Pattern from Selection.

Step 7 - The fourth image below shows the pattern filled into an eight inch square.
