Red Rose

Silly me, I forgot to mention that I joined the 'Creative every day 2012' the other day. Click on the link to see who else has joined in.

I made this digital creation for the Collage Obsession challenge - Red
I started with a lovely rose image from the Graphics Fairy shown below.
I had planned to design a repeating pattern for fabric with it but the rose wasn't quite right close up [for fabric] so I altered the picture. I moved some of the leafy bits and put on one of my own rose photos which I'd altered. 
I removed the background and replaced it with one I had created, I used the backs of some vintage photos - there was a shopping list on one of them! The leaves and buds were the only part that was left of the original image, but the picture gave me inspiration.

This is one repeat of the fabric/wallpaper/gift wrap. 
I will be adding it to my Spoonflower collection soon.


  1. I agree! Lovely! Thanks for telling us the steps, too! (I haven't tried digital art yet, so it's nice to know what's involved.)

  2. Well done pieces.

  3. I like the final image with the interesting background and I really like the way you explained how you made it.
