Have you ever tried to make a seamless honeycomb pattern? It is a bit challenging because you can't create a square tile that will be seamless. It has to be rectangular, and with the various color combinations, the rectangle can't always be the same size. That is a headache, and that is probably many people wanting a honeycomb pattern had to rely on pre-made templates. But that is still limiting, don't you think?
That is why I created this script. In fact, it was a real challenge in itself to code the script since everything we "think" and "see", has to be coded in mathematical formula. And the math is quite different from what is involved in a triangle or a square! In any case, i had to ask my son to help me with that math AND we had to use Google to confirm it. However, PSP had some little quirks that prevented me from using the straightforward calculations. Go figure!
But in the end, you get a script that will create a full page of honeycombs in various color patterns. You can have the individual hexagons in alternating colors (by row or by column) or you can have them randomly selected. But there is more : you can have a gradient (of any kind) drawn as a base and the honeycombs would pick the color of each individual location to make some very interesting effects.

As a sample of what this script can do, I started with a palette of 3 spring colors: yellow, pink and purple, and generated four fun patterns for you. They are full size papers so you can cut them out, use them as frames, or just as a background for your next spring theme project.
