A little while ago I took a series of photos that I call the “Last of the Summer Roses”. It was photos of the last roses of the summer as they bloomed out. I photoshopped some of the photos and printed out some small samples which I used to make some fabric postcards. I always like to print small samples first when testing a new design. If the print doesn’t look good, or the design isn’t quite to scale, then there’s not so much fabric or ink wasted.
However I loved these images so much that I’ve reworked one of the photos again in photoshop, enlarged it and printed it onto fabric to make this shoulder purse. I really love the sepia colors and the close up macro view of the rose.
For the back I photoshopped and printed some textured images in colors to coordinate with the front.
And I’m loving the lined straps.
And the little embellishments make all the difference.
I’m really loving this particular Summer Rose image though. Not quite my usual colors but it’s always a good thing to try something new and different every now and then. Sometimes the results are surprising.
