    Go to "Stylize", and select "Tiles".
    This is where we can create a tile effect for our image. It offsets part of the picture.

    The "Maximum Offset" percentage.
    This determines how far we'd like our image to be offset. Let's say 15 percent.

    Then we can choose to fill the empty area with the "Background color", "Foreground Color", "Inverse Image", or "Unaltered Image".
    Let's use the "Inverse Image" for now.

    Press "OK" to apply it to the canvas.
    We will see that it's been made these into tiles, and it has offset it quite dramatically. Behind, is the inverse version of the image. The white parts are now dark, and the darker parts are light.
