Acrylic blot mutation

Believe it or not – this started out as a blot according to the instructions at Inspire Me Thursday. Not in ink, but in acrylic. I then enhanced it with a black ink pen. It looked like a dog's face with gigantic fuzzy ears. I did not find it esthetically pleasing but scanned it anyway and then tried out various effects, eventually settling for the kaleidoscope one shown here. The dog is gone; what's left looks like some Swedish folklore motif perhaps. And is easy on my eyes.

This is like crazy cross-stitch invention; the kaleidoscope motif makes it loook like a bed-throw like no other in the world. I'd like to have it. G and GEM

It's cool how an image can morph into something entirely different when you put some digital tricks to use! This looks like cross-stitching! Very nice!
