Dancing Wallpaper

Sinusoid background created in GIMP and saved as PNG.
Opened that in Irfanview, color adjusted via Filters Unlimited 2, and pattern kaleided via Mehdi's Kaleidoscope 2.1, then saved as PNG.
Opened that in Photoshop and added ballerina extracted from earlier challenge, then applied outer glow layer style to her using 128 middle gray and luminosity. Created new, merged layer and kaleided that with Mehdi's Kaleidoscope. Moved ballerina layer to top. Saved as PSD.
Opened that in Irfanview and saved as JPG at target size for CM.

other sizes: small medium large original auto

I think the background pattern would make a gorgeous velvet fabric. ~Meg

Bargello for the throne in the sitting room of the Little Princess?
We can change the colors to suit her coat of arms.

I love the green patterned background. It has such a rich feeling to it. (kind of like money) I'm not sure about the blue ballerina if I were to put it in a whole room, maybe on one small wall would work for me. An interior decorator, I am not. Also I can see this as a fabric for an old fashioned piece of furniture.--skunk

Now that's a project! What a mastery you have of the way to use many different programs, and none of them really expensive.
