Pattern 78

Thursday, April 30, 2015
For this pattern I again combined one of my quilt block based patterns with one of my dot patterns.  These are the steps I took to create it.

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

Step 2 - Fill this with Pattern #17 from my January 25 blog post.  Use the Paint Bucket Tool with Pattern checked in the Options Bar.  Image one below.

Step 3 - Create a new layer, Layer -> New -> Layer, and fill it with Pattern #25 from my February 4 blog post.  Image two below.

Step 4 - On the Layers Palette, select the original background layer, and using the Magic Wand Tool, select the black parts.  You can do this in one step by having Contiguous unchecked in the Options Bar.

Step 5 - Using the Paint Bucket Tool again, fill the black areas with a medium blue or any color of your choice.  Have Pattern unchecked and Contiguous unchecked in the Options Bar.  Image three below.

Step 6 - With your selection areas still intact, select the dot layer on the Layers Palette.  Now fill the blue dots with a gold color or any color of your choice.  See image four below.

Step 7 - Select the inverse of your selection areas, Select -> Inverse.  Go back to your original background layer, and fill the white areas with the same color you used in Step 6.  See my fifth image below.  That completes your pattern.  Now Select -> All, and Edit -> Define Pattern from Selection.

Step 8 - The sixth image below shows the pattern filled into an eight inch square.
