Creating various patters by tiling a single character can produce some interesting watermarks.
Start off by adding a text watermark and put a single character like a -,~,|,* etc as watermark text. Remove the shadow, and select horizontal and vertical tiling options and see the result. For added effect rotate the watermark. Here are some samples -
Dot . size 18 fixed, rotated 315 degrees, transparency 50%
Hyphen - size 18 fixed, rotated 315 degrees, transparency 70%
Pipe or Vertical bar | size 18 fixed, rotated 45 degrees, transparency 70%, horizontal spacing 10, vertical spacing 10
Tilde ~ size 10 fixed, transparency 80%
Right angle bracket > size 20 fixed, transparency 80%, vertical spacing 10
