I could clearly see in my head exactly what I want to design, but no matter what I did in photoshop, it just wasn't coming out right and ended up looking exactly like what it was- shapes with text slapped on top.
One lensmaster (actually a group of 5 that run one account at Squidoo)- Lab Kitty, reminded me of something I had not heard of in years. The Mandelbrot set. Back when I played with it, it was pretty boring because it was in school and our computers could not handle it, so we were given a photocopy of some segments of it.
The reminder made me wonder how far it has come in the past few years so I found some Fractal software...
After only a few hours of playing with it, I went from designing stuff like
to stuff like
WOW, the difference the right software can make! I have actually created 30 designs in the past 24 hours like the Dancing Lights and the Red Satin and there are infinite possibilities!
I hope that I will be able to use these nifty fractals to create a unique line of autism awareness products! For now, I am just playing and experimenting with it though as I start to get the hang of it.
Please feel free to check them out and offer any suggestions!
