Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial- Creating a Simple Pattern

Patterns are one of the keys to creating digital scrapbook pages. You can download patterns online or you can create your own. Patterns are fun and easy. You can use photos, scan different textured items from around the house, or create your own with different colors and brushes.

Opening a new file

This is easy. Click on File >> Then New

Choose the size of your file


Select white, background or transparent. If you select transparent you can always add a background color later.

Select the width and height of your file. You can choose inches or pixels. For print graphics it is sometimes easier to work with inches. We have used 1 inch by 1 inch for this example.

Select the resolution. For print graphics, the higher the resolution the better the quality (and the larger the file). A resolution of 200 is good for print graphics. A resolution of 72 is good for web graphics.

200 resolution is the same as 200 dpi (dots per inch)

Background fill color/Foreground fill color


You can select your background color in advance by clicking on the background color box and selecting a color.

Or if you create a new file as a transparent file, you can use the fill tool to fill in your background.

Click on the Edit menu at the top. Then click on fill and select foreground color or background color.

Using the Paintbrush Tool

To Use the Paintbrush tool. Click on the Paintbrush Icon in your toolbox. Select Paintbrush Tool
