I experimented a lot in this wallpaper. I used Gimp. I've been using Gimp for 5 months but I'm still no master. The first new experimentation was that I used the feathers brush to make something of a pattern. To achieve this I used the rotate tool, the perspective tool, the flip tool, etc. This is one of the first times I use the flip tool, since I discovered it recently. Then I pasted this layer over the picture and used it as a texture, using the screen mode, I believe. I learned about textures recently also. Then for the first time ever I used the illusion filter. I had to do this part several times because I had never before experimented with it so it wouldn't come out the way I wanted it. So I kept trying 'till it sorta did!!!
