If you find that the textures you used cannot be tiled, you could always use the tools present in Adobe Photoshop. A quick and simple tool to use is the healing brush. It is found on the Tools window and carefully apply it to the edges that need to be edited to create a seamless background.

Second and most practical method is using the offset filter and the blending using the clone tool. Using offset filter changes the values of the images and then some tonal values would be visible. When that happens, make necessary adjustments to even out the lighting in the image. The clone tool is duplicating or removing objects of an image. Clone tool is to be used after the previous process to do the finishing touches of an image.
