* Create hardwood flooring
Bert received a request to create Parquet floor, which is a simple, symmetrical type of pattern. Set up your workspace by turning on your canvas grid (View > Show > Grid) because we'll be working with straight, even shapes. Choose colors like the ones Bert picks for your foreground and background color. The filter Render > Fibers will create a wooden texture based on the colors you chose. Apply this filter, and your whole canvas will be filled with wood. Change your grid color in Preferences so you can see your grid on top of the pattern.
