new surface...


I want to create a 12" x 24" grid tile.


I duplicated a 12" x 24" fill and a jpeg surface [6" x 6"]. 


The result is a combination of 12" x 24" grid and 6" x 6" grid. 


I suspect it got to do with the jpeg surface not in the same 12" x 24". 


Does anyone have a jpeg surface in 12" x 24", white tile to share?


And, still puzzle how to create new grids with surface...


Thank you

You can resize the image in your surface.



So if your tile image is a single tile 6"x6", just resize it to 12"x24"

The only thing is the grout lines will also rescale which may not look quite right.

Just google images of 12 x24 tiles to find one you like and use that.
