Homemade Abstracts

Do you usually upload wallpaper images that you see on line? Try doing something different. It is very fulfilling to create your own designs. You will be truly amazed at what you can create with graphics arts tools!

This group celebrates the joy of making your own wallpaper designs with a program, such as SUMO Paint, The Gimp, Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop, etc.

Using the SUMO Paint program is a great way to get started. You can try it for free on line. One of the best tools in it is the Gradient Tool. It is easy to use, and you can get beautiful results with it easily.

I made a couple hundred browser designs with SUMO Paint for free before I finally purchased it, so that I could use it off line also. I still use it for everything I make.

Whether you enjoy fractal patterns, kaleleidoscopic designs, interesting shapes, repeating patterns, or wild swirls of color, you will enjoy the walls displayed here. Be sure and add to them with your own creations!

Group Details

This is a group for people who design (or want to learn to design) their own homemades/abstract wallpapers. It is also a great group for people who appreciate viewing them! Welcome to the group! :D

Since many people in Homemade Abstracts are in one or both of my two "Color Groups"  I am going to give the links to them here so they are easy to access.

Here is the link to "ROY Warm Hues":
