|Original, dried flowers on Tybee Island dunes|
So, here's a couple of photos I took on Tybee Island during New Year's weekend. These little flowers had grown in the dunes and were completely dried. I loved the delicate, lacy look of them. And of course, I love to experiment with all the filters and effects in Photoshop to see what happens to a photo. Often the result gives me an idea I want to incorporate into my quilts.
So, here's a closeup of the flowers, which are tiny, about the size of a dime, and some variations.
|Filter - Artistic - Cutout|
|Filter - Stylize - Glowing edges|
|Image - Adjustments - Invert|
The one using the glowing edges filter makes me think of neon. Maybe an idea for stained glass or a hint of an idea for a batik.
The inverted one creates a really interesting color scheme, very spooky and other-worldly. But it could also be a very modern quilt, black, purple and gray. Could have possibilities.
And the stamp one would make a fantastic batik fabric. I can see it in just about any color.
Any other inspirations?
