How to use pattern maker/pattern overlay

This one is Lots of Strips templates by Scrapping with Liz (LO created using SuzyQ Scraps with her new fabulous collection - A Life Expressed - both available at SO)

I really loved the tons of strips, and rather than getting each paper into the template, and using the magic tool, or shift clicking the layer and then cutting it out of the selected paper, I found that using a pattern overlay was MUCH easier, and I could also manipulate how big the said paper looks on the template strips or shapes. Its also very easy to "move" the paper within the shape or strip in case you're paper is multicolor or patterns and you want to capture that specific color/design.

So, without further ado, I'll get to the explaining. (Please bare with me, I've never done this before, I might be a bit wordy or not explain very well, sorry!)

First: Select a paper you want to keep in your "patterns". I am choosing a paper from Rachel's Fantasia collection.

Second: Go to Edit > Define Pattern and it will ask you to name your pattern. I always leave my patterns whatever the name of the paper is originally. h paper - I don't know if you can do multiple papers at once. If you need help with creating an action, message me and I'll write another tutorial on that (or maybe I will anyways! lol). Anyhow, now that you've created a pattern, you can apply it to any shape or really just about anything. This pattern will also remain here after you’ve made it for future templates and other such uses.

So I'm going to load up a template now and show you how the rest of this works. You can also create a pattern while working on any workspace. If you've already got your template open, drag your pattern on top of your template (bring to front) and hit your pattern maker action or go thru the above steps. Your paper always has to be on top (or whatever is on top.) So keep in mind if your paper doesn't cover the whole canvas, whatever is behind it will also be including in your pattern. This function is similar to screenshot, just for inside the canvas.

Third: Now I’ve decided to use a template by Nanie Designs. I am going to select her round mat in the center of the page and right click to go into blending options

When the popup box comes up, you’ll go down to the box on the left that is labeled Pattern Overlay.

Note that as soon as you click on the box labeled Pattern Overlay, whatever you have chosen to add this overlay to immediately changes to whatever the first pattern is in your folder.

Any way to change concrete

by countertops?

Hubby and I bought new custom concrete countertops for the kitchen. I'd spoken with the owner on the phone about what we wanted, even emailed him a PhotoShop picture of the part of the sample that we liked. Problem is, they came out significantly differently.
That was three months ago and while we've tried to like these, they really do look like vomit, and not the 'speckling' pattern we requested. The colors seem like what we requested, but the pattern is totally off. Any recourse? Can we just pour something acid all over them? Actually puke on them?
But seriously, is there anything that can be done to modify how these look? The owner has been doing countertops for years, but he's an old associate of my husband's so hubby's reluctant to make waves

What creative thign can i do with textures and poatterns using photoshop, some different n not the obvious ?

Using photoshop? So making a texture from scratch? There are hundreds and hundreds of texture options.

If you are thinking of some patterns for layers try and give some of these a try using a macro lens (whick aren't obvious) :

cotton fabric,
salt / papper,
scrumpled up paper,
the rainbow reflection off a CD,
an eye,
a leaf.

Hope this helps.
