OOOOOOOH ... 96 COLORS!!!
which colors should i choose?
first i created a basic mandala with one filter only (guess which one?) using the source image above --- - then created a pattern - (see this tutorial on pattern making) -
and then a patterned painting (using pattern stamp tool) --
from that i birthed two mandalas
this second image uses pattern overlay (see last sunday's photoshop tutorial)
then, another patterned painting
and a third image (using rainbow gradient radial adjustment layer)
boy, that was fun! isn't it amazing what you can do with a box of crayons!?
