My favorite wallpaper background texture

Create new image, fill it with solid color.

1

Apply some noise (Filter > Noise > Add Noise), not much, around 5-6%. Then, apply Water paper filter (Filter > Sketch > Water Paper), setting length, brigthness and contrast values simiar to shown here.

2

To mix water paper effect with previous noise effect, hit Ctrl-Shift-F (Fade) and set fade value to 50-60%

3

Then, apply texturizer filter (Filter > Texture > Texturizer), with Sandstone texture and relief ~ 2.

4

Create new layer, switch to Brush tool, open Brushes pallette and select the brush similar to shown here. In brush properties (right below menu bar), set opacity to about 50%

5

set color to white, and fill entire image with chaotic brush strokes.

6

set color to black, create another new layer, and fill again with brush strokes.

7

Final touch - set blend more of last 2 layer to Overlay, and change opacity to 50-60%. That's all!

I've just started workin' in paintshop and I'm wondering: how You get the result of "children" drawings on Your wallpapers? Simple black lines, simple shapes... do you scan it, or am I so ignorant in using basic shape and pen tools? :)))
