I've had so much fun cutting up my painted papers to make two collages of a vase of flowers. They had been doing this at a SerenTex meeting which I missed. See it here . Sue was in charge of this one and she suggested making black and white photo copies of the work and cutting them up to make further designs.
There was no need to go and photocopy them when it is so easy to convert them to black and white on the computer.
The computer could cut them for me too using the crop tool, which is so easy to slide around to find the best design. I cropped a few to play with and this is the one I liked best.
I played around with this small image in PaintShopPro9 and got this which I quite liked.
I played some more and got this, which I liked even better.
Played some more again, liked it and cropped it for a better design. I feel sure this one has possibilities.
Below are my Easter cards for the grandchildren this year. These did not turn out well I'm afraid, but Charlie who is 2 loved his, so it was well worth the trouble. the flower card for Amy used a favourite design I created a few years ago.
