Tammy,

Don't know which toy you are using, but I have found Ultrafractal to be the most artistic in the long run.  Most of us go through the same stages of learning:
  1. make interesting designs by accident
  2. make interesting designs by accident and then see what they resemble
  3. make interesting designs with some purpose and knowledge
  4. start layering the designs to make more interesting ones
  5. decide to get serious and take some lessons.  The ones from Janet Parke at VAA are the best.  They will teach you the basics of the fractal program, how to work purposefully, and how to use the layers.  She goes on from there.
  6. if you're interested, you should subscribe to the Ultrafractal mailing list  where you will gain a great deal of insight just by watching what other do.  They're good people who will answer your questions as well.
Have a good time with your new toy!!

Cool, Tammy, it's very interesting what just shows up on your screen sometimes, isn't it?

What program are you using? It sounds like Larry has been there, done that, and gave good advice.

Very interesting effect Tammly, I also took Janet Parke's class at VAA using Ultra Fractal and would highly recommend it. If you google her name and check her galleries you'll be able to see some of her beautiful work.

Very much an Alien, Tammy....!  I love it!  You didn't mention which program you are using.
