Found this cool little online app that allows users to generate background patterns in just a few clicks called BgPatterns. They choices are limited but its fun to play around with color combinations, textures and images on stock for some simple and cool looking background. I love the fact that you can easily preview your work as a background for the page. The images you create is also downloadable in .png files.
I do hope the author would expand this little app as this looks really like a cool tool for designers. Do check it out and play around with the backgrounds. As for me, I’m off in a bit for some reading about trucking and will be churning out digi scrapping stuff later.
