I try to learn at least one new technique in January, this past week I have ventured into digital fiber art with the help of a wonderful new book by Wen Redmond. I love this book, it’s opened up a whole new world to me, this is my first piece of digital fiber art.
I don’t have any fancy photo manipulation software but after a google I found iPiccy.com which is really quite easy to use.
This is the photo I started with, I did some manipulations and saved a whole host of versions that I liked including the ones below.
Then I started out layering images.
I decided to print this one onto my fabric, I think I chose it as I was reading a magical book called ‘The Snow Child,’ also I felt this image had an Arthur Rackham quality to it.
After some painting, stitching and collage here is the final result, it’s a lot more sparkly in reality than it looks in the photo.
I can’t wait to start on another one soon, I think I’m hooked. Now if only I could get a better photo, I will have to get the light tent out and try again.
