another trip down memory lane with this fortnight's Craft Barn Alphabet Challenge. There are some really obscure words beginning with K. I toyed with "kinetic" because I love kinetic sculpture but it is a bit difficult to interprate on paper. Then my eye fell on "kaleidoscope". We had one when I was a child and it gave me hours of fascination. Looking at the little bits of foil through the glass at the bottom and then marvelling at the patterns when you looked through the other end. They seem to be mainly round these days but ours was triangular. If you are tempted there are instructions for making one here
So here is my take on "Kaleidoscope"
First I made some gelli prints on thin card and cut six equilateral triangles(Mr Craven would have been proud of me). I attached them with an eyelet, ensuring they would spin. I made a weathered wood background.
Small rant....Is anyone else becoming exasperated with the increasing "predictive text" on search engines and such. I know what I want to say and the machine, clever though it is, does not. End of rant. Thank you.
