I found this very helpful tutorial. It explains how repeating patterns work and shows step-by-step on how to make your own.
For my first attempt at a wallpaper, I wanted to work with something easy. I chose to make an argyle pattern since its symmetrical and I came up with this:
Ah! Its so cute! It actually came out better than I expected
so I am using it as my desktop wallpaper:
Please excuse the big bear photo... I can't show the secret stuff!
I made an alternate version too:
I think the first version came out better than the second, but overall, I'm pretty happy with the results! I liked them so much that I decided to share them. You can pick the one you like best :) The cool part is that these wallpapers work on any sized desktop since they're tiled.

You are welcome to use these wallpapers for personal use. But for any other use, editing, or evil intention... my you experience hell on Earth for the rest of your living days and a hex upon your afterlife and beyond. In a nutshell, its not cool to steal art. Moving on...
There are so many possibilities with this new skill. I can design more wallpapers and maybe fabric designs too. And I think I will! Yay!
