What I found interesting when playing with different tile sizes was that even if the same settings were used the tiles all came out with different patterns, so.......

Open new 50 x 50, 75 x 75, and/or 100 x 100 images,
 with these settings:


Set the colors to:

Foreground to #69A3A5
Background to #528586

Flood  fill the whole image with your foreground color.


Choose your selection tool and set at:

Draw a box of marching ants on the bottom half of your image.
(For the tiny you start at 0,25, for small you start at 0,38 and medium start at 0,50.)


Flood fill with the background color.


Selections > Select None.

Effects > Plug-Ins > Eye Candy > Swirl > these settings:
