Project 4 - Developing design ideas

The next task is to use the images from project 4, to develop design ideas.

The first thing I have done is used software (http://www.sumopaint.com) to manipulate several images.

The kaleidoscope, triangle and wave lab effects have given me great ideas to experiment further. Using the software has really opened my mind about the potential patterns within an image. I think when you've been looking at something for so long, and drawing it in different ways, you stop seeing new ideas. The "random" button on the software is especially good.

I could really see some of the repeating patterns printed as fabric! And the hexagon mosaic effect would be a really good tool for turning an image into a  quilt!

After playing with the software, I tried to recreate the "liquidwaves" effect, by roughly painting the image, then swirling it around... however the paint colours mixed together too much, and looked a mess!

I also wanted to develop one of the patterns in a screen print, but don't have the equipment. So I appliquéd the some elements and freehand stitched others. The result was very pleasing, and so far from the original image - yet you can tell the appliqué came from the source image.
