Sorry about the lack of descriptive title, but not honestly sure how to discribe it.

Anyway, given the background effect on this picture (and many more like it): http://www.iphoneclub.nl/wp-content/uploads/2008/09/image0013.jpg

How do i do this? I'm talking about the white lines which cover a simple background colour.

I'm sure this is simple but i can't work it out.

Many thanks

  1.  draw triangle, the size you want  
  2. copy it  
  3. Ctrl+T  
  4. if the your triangle pointing down, move the center point to bottom center  
  5. hold down Shift and rotate  
  6. repeat this until you get the effect you want

This is a wrong and very difficult answer.
Now, here is the real solution, and I am sure that is how they made it.
I created the tutorial myself, you should download it.
It is about 1 MB, here it is:
