Friday Night Fun

What does it say about me that my idea of Friday night fun is sitting in front of the computer, messing around with my photos?  Sad, Melis, just sad.  :)

I've been looking for a few months now for a book to help me create digital artwork.  I'm interested in digital collage and in making art quilts from my photos.  Well, today I scored!  I went to Joann Fabrics to get some fabric dye and of course, since I had a 50% off coupon, I looked through the books.  I found a book called Artistic Photo Quilts:  Create Stunning Quilts With Your Camera, Computer & Cloth.  It has a lot of the information I've been looking for and so I've been playing around all night with some of my photos that I thought would make good graphic images.  I put together a rough collaged quilt in Photoshop but I can't upload the file to my blog, Which is really sad because I really like what I've come up with so far.  Oh, well,  I'll just have to be content to share some of the individual photos that I played with.  Hope you like them!
