Create an Argyle Pattern

Finally something new on the tut front!  This should be a versatile pattern you can use for creating kit papers, backgrounds, and pattern fills.

Accordion Fold Flowers

I've seen these accordion-folded paper flowers in a lot of scrap layouts, and I wanted to see if I could create one digitally.  This tutorial is my result, and although it's not an exact match for the ones which look like they've been scanned, it's pretty close.  I may have to tinker with this one some more to see if I can make it look a bit more realistic.  Hope you'll find it useful!

Create a Plaid Pattern

Here's an easy way to create a plaid pattern, and as a bonus, it requires no filters at all.  You just need PSP, any version should work, and actually, any graphics program should work I imagine.

Create a Chevron Pattern

I keep seeing chevron patterns cropping up all over the place, especially on Pinterest.  So I thought I'd see if I could write up a tutorial to create it to use it for pattern fills or to create scrapbook papers.  The result of this tut is shown in the preview image at the top.  I hope it will be of interest to some!

This tut was written 7 April 2012 using PSP 9, but I believe it should work in other versions of the program as well.

Crumpled Paper Flowers

I haven't had any good ideas for the next tut until this weekend.  I made some flowers like this for a kit I posted over on my scrap blog today so I thought I'd write up a tut on how to make these.  Hopefully it will be of interest to some!

This tutorial was written 1 April 2012 using PSP 9 but should work in other versions as well.
