Have you ever considered how you might use your own photos in your art quilts or mixed media work? There are several products available to create photo transfers. You can also print photos on sheer fabrics like organza to create a different effect. Some people use photos as the basis for a landscape or portrait quilt, using it to make a pattern for piecing. At PGFiber2Art we like to use photos as the basis for thermofax screens. Yesterday we taught our class on how to use Photoshop Elements to turn photos into black and white images suitable for screens.
When using this pink flower as a sample image for our students to work with, we were reminded of how many different ways an image can be manipulated for different outcomes, excited by the "what if"....what if we created several variations of the same image and used them together?
