Until Katsunami's tutorial is finished, something for the time waiting

What I did? I played with the kaleidoscope effect in PIXLR and was impressed what came out of it. (By the way Sefiriot, that is all your fault, you mentioned the pattern you liked and I looked into the effects in PIXLR )

Now, what I did:

- first I made me a little ornament in black and white (Stage1)
- put the kaleidoscope effect over it (Stage2)
- and put it over it again, playing with the horizontal and vertical options too (Stage3)
- then I loaded one of my asphalt & paper compination fotos as layer in (Stage4)
- played with the filters (can't tell you though which I used)
- put a black layer partly over it and used a layer mode that reversed the color effects
- then melted everything to one layer together
- loaded my blue leather cover as layer, put it under the kaleidoscope layer and put this layer in mode 'Overlay'

Finished (Kaleidoscope Cover 1)!

When you put the kaleidoscope effect on the finished cover again, you get a new result (Kaleidoscope Cover 2) and when you play with the color setting you can get something new too (Kaleidoscope Cover 3).

Your opinion?

Note: Picture 1 to 4 are no covers! They are only up to show you from where I started and the different stages of my work! That's why only for picture 5 to 7 are zip-files up!
