Remember the Bubbletree (http://www2.ambientdesign.com/forums/showthread.php?p=188470#post188470)I'd had a happy accident with a lil while back?

someone had asked for a tutorial.
Well, it's not very elaborate, but for what its worth here it is..

#1. put lots of paint on the canvas. thicker the better. (image #1)
#2. select the palette knife with the edge option (2nd option) (remember Sabena's tutuorial (http://www2.ambientdesign.com/forums/showthread.php?t=19899)?)
#3. Use the knife in quick circles ensuring that you drag some color over some non color area. (image #2)
#4. Viola, your own personal bubble-maker!

That's All Folks!
P.S. If the knife doesn't give the nice sharp edge, undo the stroke and reverse the direction of the circle. that usually works!

:D So simple and yet so clever, awesome technique Fly, thanks so much for sharing.
I only like the first two palette knifes, the smooth one suffers too much from performance issues for my patience :)

@Juz, Thank you very much. I also have the same issues with the soft knife. I've almost stopped using it to blend. Now I'm just waiting for AR3 I suppose it'll be resolved in that!

@CS, thanks. glad you like it.
