DIY trend - Rorschach print

"The Rorschach test, also known as the inkblot test is a psychological test in which subjects' perceptions of inkblots are recorded and then analyzed using psychological interpretation, complex algorithms, or both. Some psychologists use this test to examine a person's personality characteristics and emotional functioning."

The inkblot images are graphic and very beautiful. When using them for DIY projects, chance plays a large part as there is no pattern for them. I had a tutorial for this on the list for my book but I dropped it out when I ran out of pages. In any case it is a big trend in DIY fashion/accessories right now and will probably continue to be one for a while. Graphic prints are going to be huge next summer and this is perfect for DIY projects as it is impossible to make two of a kind.
