yes, virginia, this is a half-tone exercise. it just has a lot of merged visible layers and i ran the half-tone filter twice and messed with the blending modes. a lot.
i wanted to do the one beth did but she'd already done it so i did this. actually, i don't know how she did it and i *wish* i'd done it or almost anybody else's but i couldn't and so this is mine. tiddly pom.
