I’m not a great user of my mobile phone. I can leave it lying about somewhere lonely and unloved, not take it out with me, and generally forget about it. That’s why I tend not to give my mobile number out – it’s not much use to people if I’m not stuck to it However, this weekend, I noticed the hashtag #KaleidoSaturday on Twitter, and wanted to join in. I posted up one of my hand drawn mandalas, and then asked how people were creating the digital kaleidoscopes I was seeing. And I got a reply. And then I lost my weekend to making kaleidoscopes on my phone. The poor mobile has never been used so much. This is just one of the mandalas I made, I made hundreds. And then my boyfriend and I went out for a lovely meal at our friends’ house, and all four of us ended up making kaleidoscopes… The interesting thing was that we all had our own style, too, so we could tell who had made which kaleidoscope.
If you have an Android phone, here’s the link to the app I was recommended: Picasso – Kaleidoscope Draw! – but be warned, it’s highly addictive!
As always, you can download the Adobe Exchange Swatch for this colourway here.
Have fun, and don’t say I didn’t warn you about the addiction
