COLORFUL abstract by sims2luva




Step 1

First choose a background color, and a color for your line. I prefer to have a black background with a bright colored line to make it pop out more. Here I chose a black background
But you can choose any color you want.

First, just simply make a cross like this


Step 2

Now...from the top of the line (at the orange dot), make a line...extending to the yellow dot. (The end of the line always needs to be a little ways to the right)



Step 3

Now you need to make another line. This needs to start at the orange again, but this time a little ways down from your last line.
Like last time, you need to make the line end at the yellow dot, a little ways to the right of your last line.

It should look like this


Step 4

Make a third line, doing the same thing as step 3.
It should look like this


Step 5

Keep repeating these steps until you get all the way to the bottom (when you reach the intersection of the cross)
It should look like this



Step 6

Now that your done with the first quarter, start the next.

Repeat step number two...starting at the orange and ending at the yellow.


Step 7

Finish the next quarter just like the last one.

Now you have half the star!


Step 8

Start your next quarter....but upside-down! Start at the bottom where the orange dot is....making your line to the yellow, just like you were doing before.


Step 9

Finish the next quarter.

It should look something like this.


Step 10

Do your last quarter...just like you did before....

And your done!!!!

cool huh??
