The iris are blooming in our gardens. They don't last long and we have had some heavy rains which shorten their limited season. I love irises and with my camera I can save them to enjoy year round.
I did a little digital magic with one of my photos. The edited photo is in the lower right corner above and I used the StoryBook Creator software to isolate just the image of the flower. This image was a bit trickier to do than some images since the contrast with the background was not as strong as I would like. With patience, I was able to produce the isolated image at the top left - and then I started to experiment.
I grouped two flower images together and then copied and pasted, rotating the images to create a new shape. I continued grouping and rotating the images.
After many rotations, this was the final result. Pretty, but I wasn't done yet!
I copied and pasted the full circle image two times and then made each layer smaller. I added some circles and filled them with coordinating colors and patterns of paper to make a center for the image.
Would you be able to tell what this image was made of if I hadn't shown you the steps along the way? I think it looks like feathers!
If you are a Silhouette machine user, there is an interesting new twist on the selling of files in the Silhouette Online Store.
There is a special bundle of shapes available in the Silhouette Online Store this week. A project by Jeana featured on their blog HERE used these shapes for a very cute applique quilt. For one week after the blog post (there is a countdown on the page) you can buy the four sets of shapes at a bundled price of $2.79. This is a discount of about 30% on the group. If you already own one or more of the shapes, the price will show an adjustment for "your price" under the regular price.
Have a wonderful day! I am trying to get through some paperwork of the more practical type today so I can get some time to do some creating with paper later on - wish me luck!
