Playing with Picture Tubes

In Paint Shop Pro, a Picture Tube is a collection of images packaged with software that distributes them on your virtual canvas. You request them and choose the group but the order that they appear is not controlled by you. This makes them amusing by adding an element of surprise. (Sometimes however, I "undo" the last action if the picture doesn't look right.)
Above: I started by spraying pebbles across the bottom, then layered on some other tubes including wild animals.

Below: In order to make a winter-themed image I selected picture tubes that sounded like something we associate with cold weather and applied them at various sizes.
