    a member sent me a pm asking for the Xcf files of my wallpaper "rainbow"  so i decided to write a brief explanation on how i came up with my wallpaper, this isn't really a tutorial, its explaining some steps i did that might not show in the xcf file.

    alright what i did was create those lines with the path tool then added the stroke to path each with different color then i used the paint brush to create the dots around each line, once i had all that i merged everything so i was able to use the fuzzy select tool to cut around the lines and dots, then i did a grow selection of around 20 and filled it with solid white on another layer and placed it behind.thats how i got that white mess around the lines.

    thats it. in the zip you will see two xcf files one before the merge of the lines and one which is the final result of it all.


    here is the xcf file:http://files-upload.com/files/678611/rainbow.zip
