EsherSketch to make backgrounds
To make backgrounds one can use 'EscherSketch' to make paths and save them as . svg file to use it in gimp.
Do not make an complex design because the number of paths become very high. All one have to do after load the paths in gimp is make all the paths visible and then merge all the visible paths into one path. In gimp, one can use the cropping and slicing a path plugin made by Ottia Tuota to extract the part you need. Use this link for information about this plugin.
One can then stroke the path. I used a transparent layer to stroke the path on. Then I've made a copy from the stroked layer and blurred the first layer. A black background made the design complete. The stroked drawing here included is a cropped image.
