I cannot figure out how to go about making a pattern similar to this one:
I know it must be relatively simple but I cannot wrap my mind around creating a consistent repeating pattern. thanks!
I'd start by use the brush to scribble with some different colors that you'd like.
Then we can use Filter → Pixelate → Mosaic... to turn it into some nice squares
Then we can do a Skew transform (Control + T on Windows)
Tweak and crop as necessary to get the size and angle you want
