Today I have been playing with photo images in Photoshop…..some just changing to black & white, some distorting, etc. I challenge myself to use Photoshop at least once a week, just to get to know all the details. Could take me the rest of my life…..LOL!
Today, I was working on different sizes of the centre of a sunflower as this might be the “Flora” I use for my Textile Abstractions challenge piece, due August 1st.
I have another flower that may make the cut instead, we will see…
I have printed this image onto a TAP sheet (Transfer Artist Paper)…..scratched the edges and am thinking of ironing it onto a chiffon or organza layer. Still thinking this one through.
If I go with the sunflower image, I will be using some of my stash of yellow hand-dyed fabrics. Sorted them all & folded into one of these wire baskets from IKEA (I bought the units last year, still working on finding space for them in my upstairs studio). Decided one basket is NOT ENOUGH hand-dyed fabrics so on my TO DO list this week is more fabric dyeing. Don’t need purples, but really need light blues (skies) and greens.
This week’s TO DO list also includes painted fabrics, fusible web, Lutradur and we’ll see what else comes to mind when I have the paints out.
While I work away on projects this week, I’ll post some of the pages I have had in the “I’m a Scavenger” sketchbook.
