As a child I remember being mesmerized by kaleidoscopes. Turning and turning the tube led to an endless array of ever changing, never repeating bursts of color. This was my inspiration for today's artwork: Kaleidoscope 1
I started by gathering some card stock: black, red and kraft-colored, which die cut using the following Spellbinder's dies...
Imperial Gold Circles One
Standard Circles Small and Large
I then broke into my stash of hardware. With all the bits and pieces I so frequently but, I am thinking the guys at the hardware store must think I am quite the DIYer. The circle with the swirls was a perfectly timed gift that I received from Sharon Walworth just a few days ago.
I got to stacking, keeping in mind the idea of capturing both the circular movement and the depth of image that are such big parts of a kaleidoscope.
I decided to mount this stack on a 4 x 4 inch cradled wood panel...
...which I painted with black gesso and accents of red and iridescent gold
