Lesson 2 Header

Seamless Tiles

Welcome to Lesson 2.

For this lesson, we are asked to prepare this page and include a header image, as well
as an indication of the colours that were used on the page.

This is a swatch of the colours/patterns that were used on this page:

Colour Swatch

The first three colours on the swatch are taken from the image itself (the RGB numbers
are included on the preview).

The gradient was made using the first three colours.

The pattern, which is used as the background on this page, was also made from the
image itself.

I added the darker pink to a new layer below the floral image. After merging, seamless
tile was performed. From there I adjusted the blur using Gaussian Blur; the next step
was to add effects from Paint Engine (using the frosty preset). After that, to give the
tile a bit of texture, I added FM Tile Tools, blend emboss. Because the tile was still
a bit dark for me, I added a new layer, filled with the light pink and played with the
opacity until I was happy with the tile.


The last part of lesson 2 was to copy this page, and use it as the opening page of this
portfolio. To see what this page looks like, just click on the "Home" button below.
