Scumptious Surface Design Number 1

The assignment this week was to develop a design.  I don't want to use a suggested motif or a motif at all.  So, I used a picture I took of seaweed on rocks in a tidal pool. 

 Using Photoshop I made it black and white, posterized the edges, cropped a section I particularly liked, rotated it, and increased the contrast.  Here is the design I will be using for my first project. I will use black linen for the negative space and the scrumptious design will be in white and grey threads.


    Can't wait to see where this will go!!!!

  2. I find working from photo inspirations so helpful in my work. I especially like when I can manipulate it into something unexpected. Now I have my teenage daughter bringing me her photos which have nice compositions and asking me to do something with them - very cool!! Can't wait to see how you use this!

  3. I love the look of this photo. Your "scrumptious design" will really bring it to life. I can't wait to see your work.
