Congrats to all our member that completed the Kaleidoscope challenge. This was a very inspiring theme thought of by Doro Soucy of LuxVivensFashion. These were the Guidelines:
1. You can express your love of color in playful patterns that will resemble beautiful images seen through a kaleidoscope.
2. Your inspiration can come from majestic stained glass windows of Gothic or neo historical cathedrals as well as Tiffany’s lampshades. I always adored sunlight shining through the stained glass windows inside a dark church, causing fireworks of colored lights on the opposite wall.

    Gorgeous pieces that really captured the theme

  3. One piece, ” My Heart is Your Kaleidoscope by LuxVivensFashion” is listed twice.

    • Sorry, didn’t notice but more than one is listed twice, was there that few entries?

      • When I created the collage I used the grid format. The best layout was 5 by 3.= 15. Only one photo is exactly replicated. In some cases I used two different photos for the same piece to depict different angles, details etc. One is not included b/c it was never posted on the etsy thread for the BEAD FEST. This is the second collage, b/c a one other person did not post their’s on the ETSY thread. This is very frustrating since I announce it several times; both in general announcements and discussions for each BEAD FEST.

      • Thank you! Question resolved! 🙂

      • Did I not post my piece on the correct site?? Mine was not included with the rest.
