My son was sick today :( and so once I got him medicated and sleeping, I found myself with some unexpected time on my hands while he rested. After working for a bit on some homework, I settled in and goofed around with some images.
Some play with a scrap of paper that I had blotted a water color brush out on, scribbled on and then scanned. Once I had the image cropped, I played around with off-set and kaleidoscope filters. Each swatch is 8x8 inches, 150dpi.
The last two swatches are also 8x8 150dpi images that were inspired by a photograph of a storm cloud-filled sky that I took this summer. I brought the image into Photoshop, upped the dpi from 72 to 150 just to get the washed out feel I wanted, played around with a few effects and then off-set the image.
The second image is off-set a second time.
