    Well, this started out innocently enough with inspiration by Jeannean - just playing around with the cool Photoshop kaleidoscope templates by Lloyd Williams
    He calls them "Kaleidoscapes". I had this image of a gypsy moth caterpillar on a tree that I wanted to experiment with and see what kind of image I could make of it. I was playing around with changing the orientation of the caterpillar when I stumbled upon this arrangement of moths. I thought it looked like some tribal art or something, so I went down the road of making whatever this is. I wanted it to look like something that would be part of some ancient ritual, in a cave lit only by torches. I found a red sky image with clouds in my "skies" folder and added it as a layer in PS. I mixed the layer with the original in "overlay" mode to give a mysterious look to the lighting. I added the circle so I could call it a mandala...

    Very clever, Kerry. I especially like the way parts of the image look like silver. It makes a nice mandala

    Really great job Kerry. I love the various adjustments that make it not so "perfect". But IMO it works perfectly! Great reds too!

    I love the design you created and especially the red color overlay. Very creative idea!

    Super cool! I think "tribal" is exactly right. Now I'm going to have to go play with the Lloyd Williams stuff!

    Kerry, your private mailbox seems to be full. Would you share with me how you added the Lloyd Williams templates to PS? Is this a plug-in? Thanks! Nancy
