Seamless Pattern Tiles are smallish (usually about 4"x4") sections of a repeating pattern that you tell Photoshop to "tile" across the page. Working with a small section makes it easy to recolor and resize otherwise complex patterns and color combinations. Each of my Seamless Pattern Tiles are layered psd files, with each color, (and outlines if applicable), on a separate layer. There are instructions included for setting these as a pattern fill in Photoshop. It's easy and fun!
In this download: This paisley pattern has a definite hand-drawn feel. With its many layers of color, you can apply some wonderfully subtle yet complex color combinations.
