Start with a blank document. Here I chose a black color for the bg.
Create a new layer.
Choose pattern and and select the grid.
If you dont have a grid pattern, make one here.
If we were to apply the distortion here, it would be messed up at the edges. So we need to enlarge the pattern
Press Ctrl/Cmd+T And scale the pattern off the canvas in all directions
Press Enter/Return to apply
Lower the scale and press ok
Here is the wavey grid.
Try different colors for effect. Choose
Image>Adjustments>Hue/Saturation to colorize. Check the “Colorize” button. Push the saturation amout up and lower the brightness if dealing with white.
