This series of images show another way to create and use background patterns. At the bottom is a barrel cactus mandala in its natural colors. I then show it after it has been turned into a rainbow. Next, I blur the rainbow to turn it into a background. Finally, I show it with a butterfly outline superimposed.
I can take any of my mandalas and turn them into rainbows or other color combinations. I can also desaturate them into black & white images and colorize those in shades of blue or any color I choose. I can also leave a mandala in its natural colors and simply blur it to create a background. This is another way to get patterns to emerge.
