Messing about in my iPhone Apps

I love my iPhone. I haven’t got my head around Photoshop but I am addicted to:
Reflection – does what it says on the tin, very good range of photo manipulation tools – but you have to keep saving and coming out of the App if you really want to push designs

If you want to fiddle about with the photos exposure/ saturation etc . I use Snapseed – which is very easy to use and has lots of filters

I over lay pictures in blender- you can mask / change the type of overlay effect and or move / enlarge / reduce the size of pictures

My new latest favourite is the Diana App- you don’t have the same freedom of image placement as Blender – but the filters are fun and the developers keep adding more
Things to do – this set was made with both apps – I can’t stop fiddling

Japanese Woodcarving

I am going to a woodcarving class at the Scottish National Gallery – in Edinburgh it has been inspiring (I had to buy my self extra wood carving sheet and tools) . I have been experimenting with printing on different papers and overprinting with gelli plate prints.

My printer has also come in handy to make copies to draw over.

The possibilities are endless – the cutting tools are great for carving in erasers and I have bought myself some soft carve as well – so watch this space (lol)

I went quite carving mad last week
