I made this in an Art Quilt class. We had to use the photo presented and do our own thing with it. The photo was blue water ripples which I changed to brown and photo layered the zees over it..added some buttons and thread.

It is nice to see what Forumites are creating in Art but I think that it is also nice to see how and where the Forumites create their paintings or sculptures. Have a look into your studio. :wink:

This is my studio where I work on my paintings and where Yvonne B. my SO has also her photo's.

Only just looked at this thread now and, WOW, there is some really good stuff here. :clap:

I was wondering if my photoshop art using my own photos would qualify as art for this thread. Here is one of them.

Angus seems to have a glitch in posting so I am doing this for him.
This is a collage he did for school art, it was on display at the art and culture evning last night and attracted many favourable comments.
I did not know he had such talent.
