A touch of Amish

I forgot how addictive playing with images was. I am having a lot of fun with these. This photograph of an Amish carriage was taken in Middlebury, Indiana. I was careful to make sure that there were no Amish people around as they don't like having their photographs taken and I well understand that neither would I.

I had a play around with it in PSP. I had thought of buying a sketch filter for PSP but found that you can make pencil or charcoal sketches without it.

I wil play around with more photographs and then perhaps combine one or two to make a collage and then print them on fabric - I am planning on using Evolon and Lutradur to print them onto together with cotton. I just need to get a good collection first to get an idea how the journal will look.

Great photo of the carriage-makes you want to take a ride. I didn't know you could do a sketch in Photoshop.

Very cool image Carol. I like the pencil drawing look. It can be fun to play with the computer!
