Really fun to apply this technique to a just 2-3 of my textile designs at once, thereby making a whole new design!

Wow, I really love this concept. I'll incorporate it into a Futurists lesson plan I was wanting to do with my class. Thanks!

Love the randomness of this. The stacking order could alter the results and that might be an interesting experiment to try with kids. Kris, your posts are ones I always look forward to. Tell Chris I said thanks and he's wonderful!

This was very successful and the resulting images were incredibly beautiful.
