checker pattern

Credit to this tutorial for showing me how to create a basic checker pattern, which helped me figure out how to transform that into this type of checker pattern.

What you'll be making:

The Steps

1. Create a new document 80 pixels width by 80 pixels height.

2. Click on the rectangle marquee tool.

Match the settings to mine

In the upper left corner of the document, create a square like this one.
(if you can't get it right than create a new document 20 width by 20 height, click the paintbucket tool, fill it with the first color of your color scheme, drag the layer from the 20x20 document to the document thats 80x80.)

3. Create a new layer, click on the paint bucket tool and fill in the square with the first color of your color scheme (if you didn't have to drag a layer over). Label the layer "1".

4. You should still be using the rectangle tool. Move the tool directly under the first square and fill it with your 2nd color. Label this layer "2".

5. Repeat this for the next 2 colors.

6. Now for the top row: Continue your color scheme by duplicating each layer and dragging them DIRECTLY over.

7. Continue lining up the squares across and down. You should see the pattern forming.

8. Finish all spots. I numbered them incase you still don't get it.

9. MERGE all of layer "1" together. Then, MERGE all of layer "2" together. Same with 3 and 4. You should now have 4 layers.

Use this [click here] tutorial to create fill layers out of the 4 layers you have. If you already know how to create fill layers than dooooo ittttt and ignore that tutorial. Layer "1" should control the first layer of your color scheme. Layer "2" should control the second layer of your color scheme. Same with 3 and 4.

This is what my layers look like:
