How would I create a border with a pattern, be it some celtic knots or gem-like pieces, that could be used as a border in websites or ebooks?
I'd like to simulate materials like gems, gold/silver, dark metal, stone, marble, parchment... Needs to fit into a fantasy theme.
To clarify what I mean, two pictures.
1) The contents of the first are take from the Blizzard World of Warcraft Wrath of the Lich King Fansite kit.
2) while the second one is take from a german roleplaying site (called Nandurion, with CC BY NC 3.0).
RPG Fankit Borders:
My goal is to design a fantasy themed website and accompanying ebook, with faked antiquity / old-world quality.
I mainly use Adobe CS2, GIMP and Inkscape. Any hints?
