Today’s Photoshop idea uses a tree trunk that can be made into an abstract quilt, a fabric or create a really interesting quilting design. First I used the oil filter over the trunk and then the wave filter which can be found in the filter tab, then click on the distort and wave options. I played around with the settings until I found something interesting.
Photos of textures in plants or driveways make some of the best ideas for a great quilting patterns. Boring photos usually become something fantastic in Photoshop. Last year I was taking photos of all of the firewood before it was burnt during winter. I am officially nuts! Other great ideas for textures include a wood burning fire, rock formations, and bubbles in the kitchen sink—a word of warning though—the washing up takes a lot longer!
