3" sq. block
I'll be making a mess of these medieval tapestry and tile pattern blocks to mix and match for fabric printing at a fiber retreat this summer. I have some fabric inks to try out.

Billy in his Harry Potter glasses. ;-> Funny, 'cuz it predates Harry Potter by about a decade. This was when he and I went down to San Diego for the So. CA Handweavers' Conference. He's standing in the Designing Weavers' booth.

Ring Around the Moon
Now that's kewl. ;-] I'm figuring out which tools do what: stir to the left, stir to the right, gather, repel. That sort of thing. Sounds like spell-casting. ;- j
This image was the dolphin room in Knossos palace. It's the colors that make the finished product. It doesn't seem to require the same proportions, tho, as evident in the amount of blue.

My first computer graphical image. 8-] I started with an image of a quilt block and ended up with a fluid distortion crafted into a tree and the moon. w00t!
This was fun. And so mesmerizing. I played with this for hours in Photo Shop, fiddling around and finding a filter I liked. I can get into this!
I tried to pick up a book on digital art at B&N, but there was just too much I couldn't make heads nor tails of. So I just came home and started poking around with the program. Once I understand a bit more, I may be able to get a book and see what I'm doing.
Hmmm. I'm pretty sure this is the bear paw block I started with. I must have really stirred those colors to get them to blend like that. Or perhaps I somehow zeroed in on one section? I'll have to try it again and see if I get something similar.
