and even more...

Again working with Photoshop to manipulate with filters and to combine images...


  1. Hmmm. I think I like the less symmetrical ones most. I love the original painting with three fiddleheads, perhaps just cropped a bit on the top and the right (?) side. We don't have fiddleheads in the desert. They are fantistic!

  2. Tommye,
    I found your blog because I found Meabh Warburton's blog searching through looking for tapestry blogs. Wow, how fun. I have really enjoyed these last few posts. I feel like I have been working so long in getting my cartoon ready for weaving. In the past, I did a more seat of the pants approach. Of course as a result, I did one tapestry 3 times before I got it right. Luckily, they were only 5" square. Thanks for documenting these steps. THey are helpful to me to look at your process.

    Now, back to weaving my selvedge, I am finally getting around to starting my bigger tapestry.

  3. thanks Kathy...I'm going to work more on the 3 fiddlehead pt. today. And, you're of the thoughts about it is to crop at the top. I'll look again at the right side, too, now that you mention it.


    Susan, thanks for letting me know the design process photos are helpful to you. I really love to weave so much that it's hard to make myself work out compositional things over a period of time. But since I call my blog "works in progress" I want to show my working all stages!
