I’ve been sharing some of the kaleidoscope images I make digitally. Even after a design has been colored, I’ll play with it a bit more. Although I didn’t know what I wanted to do with this one, I liked the composition so colored it in some of my favorite hues. It reminded me of my mother because she liked blues and purples, and especially lavender.
The darker background seemed to alter it once again. Then talked to a friend, telling her that the first image, done in colored pencils, was still my favorite and I wished I could figure out how to use it as a frame without trying to actually cut it out with a scissors. Something I have never been really good at. She asked if I had a photo in mind and I told her that I did. She did this within a few minutes on her computer and promptly sent it back to me.
That is my parents dancing at my niece’s wedding. The photo is over thirty years old. I did another one for my sister’s fortieth wedding anniversary. The flowers in the frame are the colors the wedding party wore for her wedding.
These look particularly great inside those hard transparent plastic holders bent at the bottom to create their own standing platform. Hope you enjoy and realize that there are lots of ways to enjoy both the coloring and the wonderful gifts they might create.
