Kaleidoscope Photo Art Tulips by Jeanne Selep
Tulip 1 Kaleidoscope Photo Art
I have loved Kaleidoscopes and the views seen inside them since I was little.

A little twist of the barrel and the image can entirely change.

Back as far as 2008 I used Photoshop to create Kaleidoscopes images with my photos, but the work involved was time consuming and therefore infrequent.  (See Peacock blog post here.)

Recently, however, I was happy to find a software program able to let me explore kaleidoscope images again.

I hope to be sharing more Kaleidoscope photos with you.  

P.S. Sorry for the spring images in the middle of fall, but these images were the first ones I experimented with!

Very pretty! The tulips work well.

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

The kaleidoscope photos do indeed portray a different type of mosaic, don't they? They're beautiful and I hope another time you might share the software and how to create these wonderful images.
Thank you for linking to Mosaic Monday Jeanne.

Visiting part 1. The variety used colours in part 1 make such different designs from part 2. Keep up the great work.

These are so beautiful. I've always been drawn to the 'magic' of kaleidoscopes too. I'd love to know more about the software that you found. If you're looking for another place to share your projects, I would love to have you stop by Etcetorize and join our Make it Monday party.
