Fantastic Tutorials for Creating Seamless Patterns in Photoshop, AI, Corel and GIMP

In home decor, wallpaper creates interest and hides blemishes. It can be used as an accent or pasted on to all four walls.

Personally, I swore off wallpapering a long time ago. Having purchased a century home, the two previous occupants of which had both been septuagenarian,  for hours on end my husband and I steamed and scraped off dated patterns in ridiculous colours.

Then, as wallpaper was still all the rage and we had plaster problems to hide, we reapplied new designs, matching seams and corners on walls that had never been straight.  Only, of course, to remove them a decade or so later when paper became passé

Never, never again would I use wallpaper I swore then and never, never again have I.

Which, of course,  takes nothing away from its versatility. All the attributes it had then it has now.

The same can be said of using seamless wallpaper or repeating patterns in graphic design. There are so many ways to use them in projects whether you're a scrapbooker or a professional designer.  What's even better is that if you have image editing software you can  create your own  motif taking expertise and imagination to the next level.

Here are some fantastic tutorials using a variety of programs to show you how:
