Kaliedoscopic

Image by SnaggleTooth 2010


Diverse subjects can make nifty, attractive textile designs. I think this one would look good as a tablecloth in my kitchen. That same day a couple weeks back I went under the bridge near the gas station in the center of town, I also took this shot... Then played with effects.

This version makes me feel warm n fuzzy. I think it should be a carpet, or a blanket perhaps. I like Earthtones. Natural scenes can take on strange properties to the eye when artificial effects are applied... Colors have not been changed.

It's amazing the patterns you got! They're lovely! Soft and pretty compared to the original subject matter.

Lynn, I'm finding artificial effects on natural things to be way better than I'd thought they'd be! Thanks.

MB, I tried! I got out for a few short visits of warmth. I hope you had some too!

MB, Yep, I'm an old Blogger bloggee! I've come a long--- way. Thanks.

Talon, I think it's amazing too- something so drab in a pic looks so wonderful with a bit of effort-

Holy cowabunga!! That is awesome. I'd wear it as a shawl.

Almost 5 years bloggin, eh? Super cool!! If I hadn't had that old lame blog with no comments, this May I'd a been bloggin' 4 years. Oh well, water under the bridge. And I might never have met you if it weren't for the way it all played out - I woulndt change that for anything!!

JanF, yep, would make a fun scarf as well. 4 years of blogging isin't too shabby either!
You can tell who's really a devoted writer when the project continues after 2 years. That's the point I've noticed many bloggers run out of subject steam, n motovation, n begin something totally different. So it's become my personal marker to judge successful blogging in others.
You've become one of the brightest parts of my day! - me either- Thanks
