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!

A Discussion Thread for New Discussions...

CollieSmile says: 18 Months Ago
Do you have a topic that you would like to discuss in this group?

I think I might be the only one who can start a discussion in this group. Therefore, I am starting a discussion about discussions.

If you have an idea for a discussion question, put it down here, or PM me about it. I will check here regularly for your questions-- and I will start the discussion thread for you.

Thank you in advance for your ideas and suggestions! :D

My suggestion is: Lets talk about relationship of color and shape in an abstract art

Hi Hatbox,

I feel a little sheepish, because you wrote this suggestion 5 days ago, and I missed it until now!

I have also found out since then that anybody in the group can initiate a discussion. So if you would like to post that question in this group, please do. :D

I would love to hear what people have to say about this. I have had very little formal art training myself, and I would love to learn about things like that.
