Scanned Rose Petals digital art image

| No Comments

Date: Completed 1999; photos taken December 2002.

This framed set of digital images was a final project for a digital art class I took in 1999 as part of my undergraduate degree. I made it as a gift for my mother and kept the colors of her home in mind.

One of my neighbors has a beautiful garden of a variety of rose bushes. I got her permission to cut many roses from the bushes. I then pulled the petals off the flowers and layed piles of petals of assorted colors on the glass of my scanner and scanned them. Using Photoshop, I enhanced and altered the colors and used a multitude of filters and other Photoshop techniques to get the images to be the brightness and texture I wanted. I cut the mat, purchased the rose-colored frame and glass, and framed it myself.
