New script – Plaid 4

Plaid design script for PaintShop ProPlaids are versatile and since you can use a wide variety of colors, the possibilities are endless. Some plaids are simple, some are intricate. This particular design includes a hashed texture that will let you show any background color through.

You can choose from 3 to 10 colors to be used and the script will randomly select them and use them. You can generate up to 25 different tiles that will also be totally seamless. Keep the tiles you like, and discard the others.

Seamless plaid tiles in png formatFor a sample, I used the color palette from the January 2023 blog train at DigitalScrapbook.com and created 10 tiles for you. They are in png format so you can add any color background behind them. And if you want to download various matching kits and elements, check out their blog train thread HERE.

New script – Plaid 3


Whether you are doing digital scrapbooking, or card making or any other graphic project, you can probably create your own plaid pattern but sometimes, you want something more delicate than a full color pattern.

With the Paintshop Pro script, you will be able to generate up to 25 tiles that will only be made of a few lines, without any background, so you can add your own. This will make the seamless plaid pattern less overwhelming. Adjust the opacity and the design can make for a softer paper.

Get this script in the store: Plaid 3 script.

If you prefer to create plaids from an image, you can use the Plaid script, while the Plaid 2 script will use all (or most) of the colors to fill in the pattern. It is your choice.

Do you want a chance to win this script? Add a comment below telling me the type of color palette you could imagine in a plaid pattern or what kind of project you can think of to use this script. I will announce the winner in the newsletter NEXT week.

cass-Plaid3-Rainbow-tilesFor a sample, i created 8 plaid patterns based on the basic colors of the rainbow. For a back to school time of year, it might fit those theme projects. It also matches the curled ribbons that were available 2 weeks ago.

Those tiles are actually png files, with the colored lines but NO background color (the white on the preview is just to help display the patterns). You can use your own background color, or even use some lined papers as a background. Why not?

New script – Plaid 2


No more wasting time picking colors, drawing lines, and repeating the process to only get a single plaid pattern.

This script will turn your Paintshop Pro into a plaid pattern generator (and a time saver at the same time). Start with the color palette you want to use, run the script, pick the colors, pick some options like the size of the pattern and the texture, and let the script do the work.

You can see the script randomly picking the colors (it is fun to watch), and then turning all those dots into a fun and unique plaid. With the randomness coded in the script, you will NEVER get the same pattern twice.

You can generate any number of patterns. Keep asking for more as long as you want. Keep the ones you like, discard the others. Since all the tiles would use the same basic color palette, you are sure they will all match together, and with other elements and papers from your kit, or your page.

Grab this time saving script in my store under the name of Plaid 2.

Of you prefer to create a plaid based on an actual picture, so you can match those colors, you can always use the Plaid 1 script.

Do you want this script for free? Head over to the Happy Place, in this thread and add your name to it. How long do you think it would take you to create 10 different plaid patterns using the same color palette?

cass-Plaid2-sample-SweetFebThis week, as a sampler of what can be done with this script, i decided to give you a little teaser too. The February 2014 DST Blog Train will use a palette that includes red, brown, beige and blue. Although i am not participating in the Blog Train, i decided to create 10 tiles that are based on the color palette. Once you get all the pieces from the blog train, you can combine them with these tiles and create something even more fun.

Each tile is 250 x 250 pixels and they are obviously seamless. Use them straight or at a 45 degree angle for even more fun effects.

Some are darker, some are lighter, so have more red, some have less. But you cannot deny that they all match together so imagine how they will look with the papers and elements from the blog train!

What do you want in 2014?

The script created this week was suggested by Carolyn who liked the original plaid script but wanted to use her own colors, and more colors than the Stripes 2 would also allow. She suggested this script in the January contest.

It could be a way to apply some designs to certain surface.

It could be a script to create objects but with some randomness to them.

It could be a tube to draw various types of elements that are nearly impossible by hand.
