I was extremely thrilled today to receive my first metre of fabric from Spoonflower.
Excited enough to not even follow my usual rule of 'no flash photography'. Excited by the prospect of a long weekend and enough hours to whip this lot up into something.
Sad that my mum didn't get to see it...
I got a cute app for my phone the other day (Lo-mob) that does some of the photo post-processing of applications like picnik (which I love), but directly on your phone, and then enables you to upload them to sites like flickr (which I love), and picasa (which I know nothing about really.
Here's an example of my doggy done using the 35mm Medium Format 2 (if I recall correctly)
And another picture using 6x6 TTV grid of the 70s
There appears to be a bug in the app that means you can only use existing pictures (every time I've tried to take a photo and then apply the effect the screen is blank). Also, actually, the function to upload to flickr doesn't actually seem to work. Still, there are other ways to upload your photos and other ways to take photos - some of which i prefer anyway so I'm not too fussed - although given it's a paid app it would, of course, be better if it all worked without a hitch.
Inspired by Enid Collins. Hope to get it finished soon to hang on my walls... such a shame I'm back at work now.
I'm still trying to learn how to use my mac and I'm still trying to learn how to use Photoshop and I'm still practicing taking nice photos... but it's nice to learn new things, right?
In reality my ass hurts (mostly from watching DVDs, and a bit from sitting in front of the computer), but I'm glad I have some time off to do things and hopefully I will spend it wisely tomorrow... but I might just go shopping instead :-)
A photoshopped Love Me Linda doll with a snowflake border from Picnik - like it ever snows at christmas time in Australia.
You can buy a print of this at RedBubble sans snowflakes.
