Sunday play


I seem to be the most susceptible to idling away time with my Paint Shop Pro program Sunday afternoons. I've been thinking about padfolios again, the poppy pictures I took recently, and Beth Wheeler's displacement maps. I wondered if I could manipulate a poppy to print out for a padfolio cover. I was rather impressed with the results above produced by my program's plasma flame displacement map. Especially since the photo I started with (below) had its problems. Making silk purses out of sows' ears I'd say!

I love what you've done with that image. The original is wonderful, too!

Love your "play" poppy! Please show us the padfolio once you've finished it.

Thanks, thanks and thanks! Don't worry, if I ever get around to printing this on fabric for a padfolio, you can rest assured I'll be sharing the results here!
