Well, April is over for us here in Australia, but I might just sneak this in with Blogger, so here is April in all it's glory, done.
This is what I have come to know as Altered Photo Artistry. I took this photo in my garden, then altered it slightly with PhotoShop. It was then printed onto Inkjet Printable Silk fabric. After stabilizing with fusible vilene, pellon and shapewell, I machine stippled in what I hope are the right places.
The dark avocado green dupion seemed to be a nice frame for the photo, and again, this is a technique that I have learnt a lot from doing.
Onwards now to May and possibly machine embroidery of the digitized kind........
