You know, being isolated and at home a LOT more! gives one time to sort things out and look back at old work.
I came across the quilt above that I made years and years ago, quite possibly in another century!
I decided that it needed a little improvement! so using photoshop elements (could have used GIMP a free download and very good, or any of a number of photo imaging programs, but just happened to have PSE and be familiar with it - the key!), I decided it looked a little murky, so upped the color saturation. also increased the contrast. Then I felt that it was really the wrong shape...I love horizontal views of trees...like you see out of clerestory windows....so I altered the shape too.
and came up with this:
Those 3 little alternations make ALL the difference in how it looks. I don't think it needs any more.
Though...it would be interesting to see it in black and white...like birch trees in a winter forest:
hmm!!! I'm quite inspired!!!
you know it's impossible to be creative looking at a blank sheet of paper/screen/design wall!
Start with something from way way in the past...and just play with the image as I have. I didn't get into extracting details, that would be another interesting step...hmm...now I think I might just make a cuppa tea and then see what details I can find....
And, of you have been! Thanks for reading...and remember, there's a wealth of possibility sitting right there in your photo album.
Comments!!! please!!! thank you!
