12 Web Page and Pasteboard Layer Backgrounds

by Gary Bouton (Gare)

A Baker’s dozen (if you’re not into baking, that’s okay: it’s 13) of new seamless tiling background textures, different sizes, all muted in tone and content, are yours for the clicking this month. These BouTextures are terrific for filling the background of a web page, and we’ve even got a tutorial on how to do this step-by-step right here. Use these bitmap fills to color in shapes, page backgrounds, you name it. You can never have your fill of fills, Phil!
