My son lives in Portland, OR and is an avid hiker and amateur photographer. He is always sending me the most luscious nature photos, so I asked him to send me some pictures of water falls. I loved what he sent and my original thought was to pair them with my blue and white shibori.
Aren't these gorgeous?
When I looked at the photos again, all I could think of was the word, "lush", so I went through my big collection of striated batiks and thought that maybe I could use these.
and found these. Ah, these are the same yummy, verdant greens that surround the waterfalls and the browns and golds suggest the forrest where they exist.
Soooooo, I took six of his photos and took them into Photoshop Elements and put the Posterize filter on them and printed them onto plain white fabric, backed them with batting and quilted them the way I did my Garden Studies.
Then I pieced them with that brown and green striated batik.
I'm linking up with Off the Wall Friday.
