I had taken a photoshop class at Delta College. It was such a great experience. I have begun to use my own photographs in my art quilting. Starting with a favorite photograph, I take them into photoshop and alter them. Following the alterations, I then turn them into a quilt using fabric.
Last spring I took Alisa Burkes online class called Sketchbook delight. In this fabulous online class I learned how to sketch and to use water colors.
In my sketch I did this blue bird. I pulled it into photoshop and began altering the photo using the color invert and posterize function. The results were funky and fun. I plan on using these alterations of the sketch to enter the Quilting Arts Contest called "Sketch".
