The April/May 2017 edition of ATHA magazine has an article, "Fresh Rug Designs Using Apps", by Sharon Smith. (pages 8 - 10) She uses the filters in a free downloadable app called "Dreamscope" to alter her photos and drawings. This photo editor lets you "turn your pictures into paintings". Sharon turns her edited images into new rug hooking patterns. The article is worth reading as she gets some interesting and beautiful results.
Here's an example using the app with a photo I took on Cape Cod. Big improvement....
I think this would make a great painting or rug.
The photo editor is a pleasure to use and has a lot of potential as a design tool.
This is a journal of drawn, painted, and fiber works. I love color, light, and pattern. I am learning all the time. I enjoy exploring different mediums, but most of my work is in pastel, colored pencil, and fiber. The paintings and drawings are part of my collection unless otherwise noted, and may not be reproduced without permission of the artist.
