What do I call this background?


I thought I would create an "image free" background for a simple skin design. I have succeeded in creating a beautiful effect but don't know what to call it.

If you want to take a stab at naming the pattern I have it as the background on this test board: http://bfoldermania.runboard.com/

 ... hmm ... Why not take a look at wallpaper patterns and see if you can find one similar, and see what name it has? Or just look at wallpapers and check out how they're named to get ideas?

 ... I'll pop in again later if a name/title pops into my head ...

Re: What do I call this background?


Nevermind ... I did a search and the ones on the image page didn't seem to have names/titles, like paint samples do.

 ... hmm ... Could do a search to see if it matches any tribe, or highlander, or ??? colors and use that for a title/name?


Baby Blue Stripes?
Pastel Stripes?

Re: What do I call this background?


I don't have any ideas about names, but I like how you used CSS gradients instead of an image.

You could actually go one step further and create multiple gradients at different angles.

I played around with it, and came up with this:

Image

.whatever {
display: block;
min-height: 100px;
background-color: #000;
font-size: 120%;
color: #fff;
padding: .5em 1em;
background-image:
linear-gradient(rgba(0,255,0,.07) 1%, transparent 99%),
linear-gradient(
      90deg,
      rgba(0,255,0,.13) 20%,
      rgba(255,0,0,.13) 40%,
      rgba(0,0,0,.13) 80%,
      rgba(0,0,0,.13) 100%
      ),
linear-gradient(
      90deg,
      rgba(100,0,0,.20) 30%,
      rgba(255,255,255,.19) 80%,
      rgba(100,0,0,.20) 100%
      ),
linear-gradient(
      rgba(0,0,0,.17) 2%,
      rgba(255,0,0,.18) 12%,
      rgba(255,0,0,.18) 30%,
      rgba(0,255,0,.18) 65%,
      rgba(0,0,0,.18) 85%
      ),
linear-gradient(
      45deg,
      rgba(255,255,255,.17) 5%,
      rgba(0,0,0,.1) 25%,
      rgba(255,0,0,.2) 30%,
      rgba(255,0,0,.2) 40%,
      rgba(0,0,0,.2) 60%,
      rgba(0,0,0,.2) 70%,
      rgba(255,255,255,.2) 80%
      ),
linear-gradient(
      -45deg,
      rgba(255,255,255,.17) 2%,
      rgba(0,0,0,.1) 30%,
      rgba(255,0,0,.2) 45%,
      rgba(255,0,0,.2) 55%,
      rgba(0,0,0,.2) 65%,
      rgba(0,0,0,.2) 80%,
      rgba(255,255,255,.2) 95%
      );
background-size: 15px, 25px, 35px, 45px, 100px, 85px;
}

Thank you for the compliment Firle. emoticon

Would you call that a "faux tartan." LG?

I am calling my project the "Spouzic-art" revival. The theme has no graphics in it, so I thought I would play around and see what I could do to put some "art" into the theme without violating the themes "no graphic images" design concept.

I have no idea what to call anything you or I came up with, Rick, but I like the background you came up with here:

Just think of all the color schemes you could use for the 'wallpaper' and 'plaid' backgrounds. Some backgrounds could be made to go with the images some boards already have up.

Ooh. Could run the image through the color coding webpage and use all of the color numbers in the patterns.
