Prompted by a photographic/art competition at my OH’s place of work I decided to do some more experiments with multiple print-offs and use up a piece of left over Sanwa tissue from my InkAid experiments.
On a recent visit to the Focus on Imaging show at the NEC, Birmingham, I bought a pack of computer pintable canvas, so I was quite eager to try this out.
I started with an image of snowdrops taken recently and printed it straight using the settings suggested by the manufacturer.
As this was a very strong image I wanted to knock it back a bit so put a ‘rough pastel’ filter on it in PS.
I printed this onto the Sanwa tissue, which has gold and silver flecks in it.
I fused this over the original caves image using the wonderful misty fuse that Debbi so kindly sent me.
I still felt that there was more I could do to enhance the textural feel of this image so I printed some lacey tissue with the original image to put some definition back into the piece. I then fused this to the Sanwa layer.
It was my intension to stitch into this piece, but after having tried endless different ideas on a PC size piece I gave up and decided it wasn’t suitable for stitch.
See what you think.
The quality of the pics is nowhere near as good as I would like, but it was a very difficult subject to photograph and I had to do it with the aid of an angle poise lamp, not the best of solutions to a cold wet day!!
