Modern Technology


I am always trying to learn more about the workings of all things computer related.  Since taking an online course using the GIMP programme [with Sharon Boggon], I've been constantly trying to improve my knowledge of digital art imagery, and photo alteration.

I won't make this a long post, but thought I'd share a little mish-mash collage of various images I have created, and hope to use for small gift notelets in the future.  Some of these have started life as cropped sections of my own photographs, and some began as blank spaces, gradually being filled with different colours and brushes [digital stamps], followed by a variety of filters.

Many of these stamps are available as free downloads.  It is gratifying to know there are people out there who are happy to share their knowledge for the amusement of others.  If you would like to check out this website:  http://www.obsidiandawn.com/ you will see the various tools that are available if you have a photo programme.

Of course, I am still knitting.  This time I'm working on a white cabled cardigan.  Take care all.

Linda, I love these images and the way you have arranged them. Lots to look at.

Photography is such a great way of creating new ideas and of course it can be really time consuming.

Linda, looks like you have had so much fun! Such a variety and any of them would serve greatly as a background to stitching. Can't wait to see them made up.

Hello Linda, the images are wonderful and it looks like you were having lots of fun. Of course I have No clue how you made them but they look very complicated. I look forward to seeing your next knitted sweater. Hugs judy

Hurah!!!
By now I forgot what I wanted to say, LOL!
Just that this area of art is new to me and I don't know if I ever ger around to trying it, but I do find it amazing, there probably is no end to what you can do with this.
I am glad I can "talk" to you again :))
