    Now you´ve done it--you went and opened it! Fantastic, rich mandala sort of effect.
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    Dears Scott and Skylar, Thanks so much. I think I will tinker a little more with this one when I get time this evening. I want the middle one to be linked to a gear. I will try to draw one and place it behind the layer so it will be some thing to be turned.

    Hi Byron, Thanks! Now with the gears in place and the turning locked into place, we see the darkness that is inside! Spooky!

    Thanks so much Oriane. These are so fun and relaxing to do.

    Damas, Thank you very much!

    Sabena, Thank you sweet lady. I wish I could say that it is hard, but it is not very hard at all, but takes time. I learned from Peter, and then I started doing his method but combining difference layers that had been worked with. I will upload an example.

    This is how I duplicate and enhance using the transforming-vertical-and merge.

    In this example I use the circle masking tool.
    I airbrush the desired color. Shade the bottom with the darker shade and highlight the top of the circle. Un-mask.
    Duplicate your object in this case a circle.
    Here is the fun part. At the side of this layer find transform.
    Use the "V" key for vertical flip.
    While you are still in the transform mask-use your mouse or pen and touch the corner of the box and make your circle or object smaller.
    Now you will see an inward octave shape. You can then go on to duplicate and transform, flip vertically again, make the object smaller, and keep going until it is a cone.
    Keep experimenting with layers and shades, movement and colors in the backgrounds. It is wonderful if you would like to decorate a special photograph for a fantastic background or just play around.
    Hope this helps.

    This is just a small example of the cone shape. The background is from Peter's method. Drawing, flipping, combining, highlighting, and repeating until you have the results you desire.
