Patteren Making in PSP 8 


I have used PSP 8 for this tutorial
The bird image used in this tut is part the kit, Pet Shop by Crescent Moon Designs, available here
This tut is written keeping in mind that the user has basic PSP knowledge.


1 - Open a new document with following settings

6 - Now to add some background color, select the Flood Fill tool and pick a colour that compliments the image used, I picked the colour from the nose of the bird, highlight the lower transparent layer from the Layer Palette and flood fill it with the chosen colour
