Nice collage of dotted kolams, with same number of dots. I like how you have made bold criss-cross outlines in
the fourth image (shows the difference between the 3rd and the 4th). Just so you know, I had to edit the image further to get rid of extra space, to make it fit within our "800" pixels width. Smile

nice ones....1 & 3 looks difficult....2 & 4 seems easy to try Smile ....lataji, your tutorial has been at its best use now Smile

Actually, she had done it using steps given by her son. But, in the future, I have a feeling she would follow my tutorial as it has only a few straight forward steps (in comparison), and gives a better idea about the image-width that we use here at ikolam. This is fabulous work for someone who has tried it for the first time this way. Smile

ராஜம்மாஜி, உங்களைப்போலவே உங்கள் கோலமும் அழகாக சிரிக்கிறது. மிகவும் வித்தியாசமான முயற்சி. (These also look like crispy Murukku to me Smile ).

Thank u all for encouraging.All these kolams were taken from one of my VASAN's kolam book. I wanted to send any one whice comes out nicely.After putting all the 4 kolam I asked my son if I can combine all the 4 in one screen. He taught me the procedure, but due to old age I was forgetting the steps and didnot succeed,. Finally he wrote step by step instructions(Almost 33 steps) and after trial and error arrived at this.( First in Adh.photoshop I minimized the kolams and copied in Ms paint and pasted in one final Ms paint )I could feel that it was not a perfect work, but sent to Lata to decide whether worth for uploading. Now that she has given a nice vedio tutorial( which I put repeatedly just admiring her voice, stylish pronunciation and clear explanations) I think most of us can club similar kolams in one and send it.Thank you Lata, for helping me to learn more in computer also.

That is the beauty of chikku kOlams. Any number of patterns can be obtained using the same dot arrangement. Very nice work.
