I haven't made any background texture brushes in a while and figured I've accumulated some pretty good crumpled paper textures, so here is a high resolution 2500 pixel crumpled paper brush set! Remember these are texture brushes so they have hard edges, but if your design project is less then 2500 pixels in size you should be all set. Of course...

I've had these tile-able seamless grass textures for some time now and realized that I should probably convert them to patterns for use in Adobe Photoshop or Gimp! These seamless grass patterns are all 2048 pixels by 2048 pixels, except for one that is 1024 pixels by 1024 pixels. These would be cool for a grass background for a website or...
