One of the world’s leading textile artists introduces hobbyists and professionals alike to exciting new digital methods for designing and creating stitched artworks. For example, starting with a photograph taken with a digital camera, this idea-packed book shows how to use a popular computer paint program to turn it into a striking abstract design, which can then be transferred to fabric with an inkjet printer and embellished with stitching, felting, and other crafts. Complete with instructions for using innovative products such as InkAID and Shrinky Plastic, and lists of sources for copyright-free designs, the book provides a rich menu of techniques and effects. Large color photos showing both the design processes and the successful finished works offer instruction and inspiration.
