Carolyn talks us through how to use simple ‘photo shop’ applications to help with design and creativity.
Creative Inspiration and Design Ideas from Photo Manipulation
Sit in on this entertaining talk with Carolyn and Jennie to learn how to use photo manipulation for creative inspiration.
In this video, Carolyn will walk you through how to use the basic features on photo manipulation software. This includes changing colours, stretching & posturising, and applying a range of filters to distort and create mosaic effects. Carolyn and Jennie also talk through how to print off your designs and turn them into stitches.
You can use these creative ideas for cards, embroidery, patchwork, beading… any craft you love.
And remember! Always save your ideas under different file names so that you don’t lose any of your design ideas.
