This flower is given a weave effect thanks to an overlay of arranged gradient rectangles. The flower image itself is unedited. The weave is a result of the pattern placed on top (in a separate layer). That pattern is made up solely of gradient filled rectangles which exist in the library as symbols that could then be turned into a pattern fill and resized and rotated if further control is needed (here, they are just sitting on top of the flower image as rectangles).
