This is Jan and Gaillou's favourite from a 3x3 collage of kaleidoscopes made from dichroic glass, that I posted on 30 November. I make my kaleidoscopes and collages using freely available images and a variety of programs. A 3x3 collage usually takes around 2 hours to make.

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

Very interesting patterns and fun composition, Kirsten.

Gaillou

I still love this, especially the center. Thank you, Kirsten.

RandomWorship

I agree, I really like this one too, Dagmar. :)))

Dohun

After having a look at them all, I'll settle for this one. The combination of colours is just perfect and I love all the little intricate black patterns. :))

RandomWorship

Thanks Deborah!! There are another 8 to come, 'cos all 9 were selected as faves! So watch this space. LOL

Now this is a beauty, a stained glass ceiling! I love this one! Thanks Kirsten! :)))

RandomWorship

Awww! Thanks Jan! I'll always think of you whenever I'm "working" with glass. And when you really like it, it just increases the pleasure I get from making the kaleidos in the first place (if that is at all possible!) Thanks my friend. :)))

Thanks Katie!! :)))

The best one of all! Look at the colors and the details and the variety of patterns! A really shiny gem, Kirsten! Thanks so much!

Gosh 12 years, Gail! I'm lucky to get 4 years outta mine. But I guess I do a few extra k's to you. I hope this is the last of the misfortune Gail. Onwards and upwards!!

I had an okay day, but a spendy one. After 12 years, it was time to replace all my tires. I can't afford to have another thing like that happen to me, too dangerous. But I only have 54,000 miles on my 13 year-old car, so it has lots of life in it still, and the new tires will help with that. Thanks, Kirsten.

Ha! We're waiting for the same thing!! LOL. And thanks for telling me your name, Gwen. I really appreciate that. :))))

And these international time zones are weird, aren't they? Your Tuesday is just beginning. Mine is nearly ended.

roadworn

I am also waiting for June : ) Then I have to get busy offline.

In 3-D life, I am Gwen. I have a cousin in Melbourne, though I haven't heard from him in years.

I love the way we can chat across time and space, comparing weather in Texas and Australia, you going to bed and me getting up. It is amazing.

RandomWorship

It's all good, Edie!! Just havin' fun. In the main, I don't try for top of the board places either (not much point with Franc around. LOL), sometimes if just happens when everything comes together as you say. And I'm glad you enjoyed this lot. :)))

RandomWorship

Here I am Gail! I popped on quickly to reply to comments earlier, but then had to nick off to make and eat dinner. That must have been when you came looking for me. Hope you had a better day than yesterday! :)))

I thought you might see that. I actually did that without intending to. It was on a first try. One of those where everything came together. These are great. Just finished the pink one and I have to pick that as a favourite. Competition is part of the fun here so please try when you have time. Thanks for this lovely set.

RandomWorship

Awww! Thanks roadworn. What a lovely thing to say! I enjoy having you visit while I'm still online too. Over here in Melbourne Australia, it's 9:45 pm, and not too far off my beddy byes. I'm just waiting for June Shone to post (she's my all-time favourite puzzle maker) and then I'll do hers and be off to bed.

I also have a question for you. Which of course, you can say no to, if you feel it's too much of an intrusion. But would you care to share your name? Do say no, if you don't feel comfortable about it. And I'm Kirsten by the way. :)))

octomom

Ah, there you are! I looked for you earlier, but couldn't find you. So I took a break for an hour and it seems I just missed you then. Going to start these wonderful puzzles now.

RandomWorship

Yay!! So nice to "see" you, Edie. :)))

And I was just having a look at my completed bookmarks, and saw a very cheeky comment from you, about knocking me off on one of Gails puzzles!! You're a naughty one. LOL. I was very tempted to give it another shot,. But I've scarecly soved a new puzzle today, so I thought I would save my efforts for something new. LOL

roadworn

I will do. Actually, you have become a daily habit. I look forward to your creations to wake up and get my brain going.

2dogs7cats

I know I'm late but did I still catch you. These look amazing Kirsten. Such rich colours. Can't wait to get started. Thanks

Glass is spectacularly good to kaleido, I think roadworn. It's all beautiful colours and textures. I love it, and you'll always see a glassy one from me every couple of weeks!!! I guess I could say "watch this space"!! LOL

roadworn

Wow! Your kaleido in the link is gorgeous. The seems the glass does give an extra special quality to the images.

RandomWorship

Good to know, roadworn! I'm a bit of a fan too, and have posted many an art glass kaleido collage. Just for looking, this was my most recent one:

Which I really loved!!

roadworn

Ooo, it is beautiful. I love art glass. Thanks for putting it out for us to see.

RandomWorship

It's that middle bit, I reckon Hester. And I love that shade of green too! Glad you enjoyed it. :)))

RandomWorship

Oooh, I'm not used to seeing you here straight away, Ardy. I posted, and then trundled off to bookmark what has been posted in the last 24 hours. LOL And whilst I'm sure you had a hard time knowing where to start, I am in no doubt as to where you will finish! LOL

feistyfreddy

Beautiful! I'd love this as a brooch. It has an Art Deco feel to it and the colouring is deelicious! Thanks Kirsten! :-))

ringleader

Good evening, Kirsten. These are all so lovely that I had a hard time deciding where to start. Delightful colors and design. Great choice of Jan and Gaillou. Thanks. On to number 2.
