Yesterday morning as I was checking my regular blogs and viewing photos from my "Flickr Friends" I found this blog from Judy Scott a fiber artist who is documenting, or "blog-umenting," her City and Guilds Machine Embroidery studies at Dundee College in England. I was very inspired by her work including a very lovely reference photo of foliage. I decided to go over to the our local college and take photographs of a variety of leaves and a few late flowers. I took a half a dozen shots before my camera batteries went dead! When I got home all my other batteries were dead. I was disappointed but decided it was a good time to try something new. I placed flowers on the scanner and took pictures with the scanner lid up.
Then I played a while with Adobe Photoshop to get this.

Oh I love this photoshop enhancement. I thought I would stop by and see what you were up to. Do you ever print your photoshop enhancements onto fabric. I know that my sister Susan found this really cool place that sells silk to print on for her fiber art. Well enjoy. Blessings, Karen
