I hope that you enjoy them!

My favorite colors are any kind of blue, also lavendar, purple and greens. Look at my Gailarino puzzle today and see some of my favorite combinations.

Michelle, my favorite colors are anything that is a bright, "jewel-tone" color. Think of a pile of colored precious stones.....yummy! So, blue, turquoise, green, yellow green, red, rich amethyst, amber, (add in hot pink and orange) well, you get the picture. I really am not much for pastels. But, I have fun puzzling using them.
What are your favorites?

Jan, yours was a little picky to work with...only 3 letters in your name! I downloaded a bunch of extra fonts trying to play around with it. I wasn't as happy as with the other ones so I might try this again...true turquoise, you say? Give me a list, please! (Did you see the one I did for Bexter...nearly all teals and blues...her favourite colours, plus green, natch! And a larger size since she prefers that.) The orange was to egg you on, honey, dontcha know?

Disregard my other question, Gail! I now know your name. Why don't you let me know what your favourite colours are? ;-D

This is gorgeous. It reminds me of a stained glass window ornament or Christmas tree ornament. I can't believe you are just starting out making these. I love it.

Michelle,
This is a lovely puzzle. Every element is either beautiful or fun! It is amazing that you have become so proficient in such a short period of time. For most of us, that would be a miracle. For Michelle, it is just old hat and they way you do things! I am in awe! Seriously!!
Thank you so much for this striking puzzle. It has ALMOST all of my favorite colors. If you had added in some true turquoise, you'd have made it complete! LOL
As to the orange - - well, sometimes is DOES have to take second stage. Again, thank you. (big smile on my face!)

Good Morning, bright and early, Monica! (In your time zone, the wee "sma's" -- the wee small hours). I am just trying to play with using different tools/techniques and I thought that a mandala using Jan's name was one way to say thank you to her for being such a lovely person and friend to me...my first friend here on Jigidi. So, which style do you prefer?

(My sweet mother paid for and accompanied me to some cake decorating lessons when my children were very small. She was proud of what I accomplished in the classes and wanted me to continue further so I did take a wedding cake class too. With those skills, I was able to make and decorate my sister's wedding cake (which was fairly elaborate) all just with butter cream icing. I hadn't worked with gum paste or much fondant. While a gift to my sister, I made if for my mother's enjoyment and pride. She died one month after that wedding. The mermaid cake is butter cream but all the sea creatures are fondant...as is her costume. For these, I had my daughter's help since she is very gifted artistically and treated fondant as modelling clay! It would not have been so wondrous a scene without her help. It was just a relatively basic white cake since it was for picky children so no chance to get elaborate there. Now one of the other cakes I posted...the wedding cake...that was scrumptious since we could go to town and do what we wanted there!..LOL Regarding your other comment, that would make my husband laugh! I do get obsessive when I learn something new and always want to do it well...it is a family failing!)

Wow Michelle, your getting really good at this and it looks like a lot of fun to play with, once again I guess I'm going to have to get my son James, to teach me how to do this. B.T.W. I went to the site you told me about, the one with the mermaid cake, and all I can say is WOW again! I get the feeling that you don't do anything half_ ss, if you know what I mean? L.O.L. Seriously, it was beautiful and I'll bet it tasted even better! YUMMY! Thanks for sharing that with me!...Monica.

More glass, Dave! I wanted to change up what was offered with the programme and adding "real" glass was just too easy. Have you figured out what the Mandala is, though? (Enough orange for Jan, I hope. LOL)

Francine, I was still using the set choice gradients that came with it (there are tons) but the one for she who shall remain a mystery (until tomorrow) I did myself...all her favourite colour(s)...you'll see. I also went away from glass as a background and it is a photo of one of hers in the supply bin... ;-D

Well! Look at you already! I love it! Not to much orange either:-D The background is a great choice. I keep trying to look through the black hole in the blue haze, to the center of the universe.

bookish

Again, like your choice of colours and use of gradients. Another fun one. Thanks Michelle. (1:59)

I am so glad you like it, troubleatmill. I am such a brand-newbie at this (since yesterday!). Have you figured out what the design is?
(My name is Michelle...I believe that we have mutual Jigidi friends in common (like Hester).)

troubleatmill

WOW!!!
What a gorgeous design . . . :D)
