Today was a long but good day, with work, meeting a friend and her 9 month old daughter for lunch, then introducing my Embroiderers’ Guild branch to travelling books, which went well, we now have 26 people signed up!
By the time I got home I was a bit tired, so I just experimented with a new image manipulation app which had been recommended to me – icolorama.
I took this image:
Modified the colours and added a lens flare in Aviary to get this:
And then played with lots of different form effects and brushes in icolorama to get all these beauties!
I’m still very new to using this app, and don’t yet feel like I know precisely how I got these effects, but it was very enjoyable. After this I started applying more than one effect to an image, and that has a lot of potential.
As always, more experimentation needed!
