Playing with Photos

The above quilt in the State of the Art quilt 09 exhibition which is about to go on show during the first Expertise Events, Textile Festival being held in Brisbane in May.

I played with a photo in Paint Shop Pro, cropped the photo, changed the colours, printed it out using poster print 3 x 3, then used the poster as my pattern and traced pieces I wanted to use.

Now I'm playing with another photo, currently changing colours and seeing which I like. So far I'm not thrilled with any of them but thought you'd like to see what's happening so far.

This is one of the photos cropped further and I don't mind this one.
Let me know which one you like.

Hi Ros, Your leaf quilt is stunning; I do like your choice of colours and texture. You must be chuffed with your work.

I too have played with my photo's and dont have the software you used; however my experiments with Photoshop Elements has been fun, sometimes good, sometimes not so good as far as results go. I think I like your green (bottom right) best because of the contrasts achieved & affinity with nature colours.

I saw your quilt entry in DUQ mag, current edition - it is divine. I hope you are posting a photo of it on your blog soon.

Cheers, Pamela from Sydney
