LOOKING GLASS - KALEIDOSCOPE

Here is my next piece in my series of Kaleidoscopes...

My daughter named this one...Looking Glass...so hence the name.
I like the layered look it has with the star shapes (towards the middle)...I have no idea how I did that.
I really do not want to know to be honest...I like the free flow playing that I have
been doing in paint shop pro. I don't want to have it all planned out that it becomes routine
rather then off the cuff creativeness. (does that make sense?)

So I played some more with the above image and created the following...a mosaic.

I like the look of the mosaic....really seems put together to me.
It was fun to create...
Now I went one more step....and this is what I created when I played with some filters:

The reason I am including this creation is because I immediately thought
how cool this would look as a background paper for something else...
to add it to a collage piece or for scrapbooking, or the background for an ATC card.
I like the pattern...I really surprised myself with it.

So I have been creating away and thinking of different things to do with
my creations and it has been nice to have ideas and see where they lead.
I just happen to LOVE the color purple so I think that helps with the creativity..lol

Thanks for stopping by and Looking!!!
Have a BEAUTIFUL creative day!!

Oh yes I know what you mean with going with the flow. That is the relaxing and fullfilling part. I usually have that 'time feeling loss', be totally involved in my art process when I just play along what comes out spontanousely. So enjoy it, plus like you said it keeps it interesting, like a happy surprise everyday, who wouldn't like it!
I love purple as a color as well. The last one would be for sure a great background for other projects. Looking forward to see your ideas you have already to create with it further.
