Create a New Image,
File - New,

Width 1200 (the images width)

Raster Background
16 Millions Colors

and select Transparent,

select the OK button







Choose a color

any color you like, I choose a light blue color    #CCE6FF.



Create a new layer
Layers - New Raster Layer,

you can also press the
"Create Layer" button
in the Layer palette..

Name the layer "square",

Click OK.




Fill the new layer with white color...

Your images should look like this ...





Use Magic Wand    tool, select a white area ...
choose Selections - Modify - Select Similar ... (the white color will be selected)
Press "Delete"  ...
choose Selections - Select None




Change the layers Opacity, I choose 20 for my image ..


You can save your images if you want, I will work some more with mine .. ..


I change the Opacity back to 100 again ..
(only when I do this step, then I change back again)

Use the Eraser   eraser   tool,
use these settings ..

Shape;Round, Size;100, Hardness;100, Step;25, Density;20, Thickness;100, Opacity;100

Then, "erase" some squares ..
sweep the tool over the images ..

If you have Simple Filters you can check the edges,
if you choose "Simple - Top Bottom Wrap" ..
