Unraveling

Hybrid

A while back, I said that I would use this space to display my art work. And of course, have been busy doing it and not showing it to anyone except a friend. I have been fascinated with Mandalas for some time: find them soothing and relaxing to color and create. Recently, that same friend helped me to learn how to use the kaleidoscope function in Photoshop, and of course, I went a bit wild. Got interested in line weaving (repeat pattern drawing), and used it to fill up the Mandalas I was making with the Kaleidoscope app. Then bought some colored pencils to add to the process. In the course of doing all of that, I uncovered a Hybrid: a cross between a Mandala, kaliedoscope image, coloring, and line weaving. My process: This is the template I created in Photoshop, using a combination of other images. Then I added some line weaving and color. Next, I took the image to Paint.Net (a program that can be downloaded free, at this location:  http://www.getpaint.net/ ), where I created a background and several color choices.   And that is the story of my Hybrid. I call it a Kdala because it’s easier to say than Kaleidoscope/Mandala, or Mandalascope. My friend says that she has created a monster, lol. I say a monster that really loves making beautiful things.
