Sometimes/always there are other things I could/should be doing, but my inner two-year-old takes over and apparently has no adult supervision. I managed to dry one load of clothes (washed the previous day), but I made a lot of kaleidoscope designs.
This started out as an abstract bird design. I deleted the background color, then used
- painting/color abstract paint/comic book (and other) filters (each separate)
- modes with two of the above (various combinations)
- sharpen filter
- symmetry kaleidoscope filter (10 divisions) (this image is design 100/360°)
- relief light filter
- drop shadow filter
- centered nova filter
- on a blended mix of blues from the deleted background of the original image
The layers, from the bottom up are
- blended blues background
- drop shadow
- relief kaleidoscope design
At some point I may upload all the kaleidoscope designs and provide a link from here. Or I may not. We’ll see.
One of the designs I did last week is clearly an embroiderable pattern. I want to try to make it.
On Saturday, while out shopping with my sister, I purchased some new embroidery threads, as if I actually needed them! My excuse to my internal parent is that they’re Anchor, not DMC, so have somewhat different colors, and I’ve never used Anchor before. Good enough. I’m thinking I might use these for the above-mentioned design.
But first, coffee! . . . er, I mean, first I need to finish a machine embroidered project I’ve put off for way too long.
(I keep seeing that “But first, coffee” on T-shirts, embroidery designs, posters and what-all, which is why it popped into my head as I typed.)
