This week's theme is Safari/Big Game/Wild Animals. Many of you will know that I have a problem with putting images of real animals in the kaleido maker. It feels too much like blending them! Eeuuww. LOL So I made these kaleidoscopes from images of plush toys of African animals. And thought it was appropriate to present them as roaming wild!

The images I used to make these kaleidoscopes are freely available on the internet. I then use a variety of programs to make my kaleidoscopes, recolour the backgrounds and assemble them into a collage. Each collage takes around 2 hours to make.

It gives me immense pleasure making them, and I hope it gives you pleasure solving them. :-)

I'm glad they didn't scare you, Magda. Being plush toys, they're used to cuddles. :)))

No eyeballs Jan! Not even when they are glass buttons!! LOL

And I'm glad you like my change of pace. I've been wanting to do something in this format forever. But this particular theme, with these like-coloured kaleidos demanded it. And having them "in the wild" was perfect, I thought. I'm glad you had fun with it too. :)))

You're welcome Marisha! I hope you had on your khaki safari suit, with your socks and sandals! LOL

Sorry I missed your last comment roadworn. I'm from Australia, and it came in at about 10:30 pm my time, and on a school night - that's my bedtime! LOL So I think I was pushing out zzzzz's when you posted it. :-DDD

Your Zoo looks very nice, and the animals quite tamed. Thank you.

My only question, Kirsten, is where are the eyeballs?
Love the new design. The space between the kaleidos, instead of overlapping, is an interesting design element. What a fun puzzle! Thanks so much!

Zebras and elephants and giraffes, oh my. Thanks for the trek through East Africa :~}

Jigidier... that is a good word : ) So we won't be needing therapy yet. That's good.

I don't know how old the car is. They were made with interchangeable parts for years, so it could be from several decades. Glad you like it.

Nah! It's a Jigidier's perogative to change their profile pic. I do it all the time too! And I sure hope I don't have to see a therapist! LOL And I like your current pic. It looks like an oldie, but a goodie. :)))

roadworn

Yes, it is. I saw and it thought it fit my jigidi identity. I've switched out pictures a few times. Maybe I should see a therapist for identity confusion.

RandomWorship

LOL roadworn!!! I'm glad you like it. :)))

And speaking of fresh and different, is that a new profile pic I spy?

roadworn

They are loose! Call the kaleido keeper!

The new presentation is fresh and different. Great idea. Thanks.
