SYNOPSIS

HISTORY

  [Xach] start off with an image, then pixelize it
  [Xach] then add alpha->add layer mask                                   [20:21]
  [Xach] render a checkerboard into the layer mask
  [Xach] duplicate the image. fill the original with black, then blur the layer
             mask (i used 30% of pixelize size) and offset it by some value (i
             chose 20% of the pixelize size)
  [Xach] duplicate the duplicate, remove the layer mask, move it below everything
  [Xach] then add a new white layer on top, set the mode to multiply, and render
             a grid into it at pixelize size
  [Xach] that's a bit roundabout, but it's also in the xcf

Because the way xach does it is a bit awkward, I'm switching it around a bit and working from the bottom up..
