Kaleidoscopes and Mandalas

This class was intense!! And awesome. I was able to make a few kaleidoscopes and play with smart objects. Since Photoshop Elements doesn't have the smart object options, I was able to find an add-on pack that allows you to achieve the smart objects, with just a few extra steps.

Helen, I was having trouble with making the objects rotate around properly, even when choosing the top middle dot in that square, after the second iteration I would have to manually adjust each piece pretty significantly. I don't mind it much, maybe it's the fact that I am working in Elements? Do you have any suggestions?

After playing with kaleidoscopes, I used one of the coloring pages I drew and created a mandala-y coloring page using the same steps! I'm so stoked to find an additional application for this class!!
