** Cosmic Clematis **

By dianah
A different type of manipulation of a clematis from an old file. I love the colours and this reminds me a bit of a fractal. This was the result of a very quiet Friday evening when my husband went to speedway and I had an evening to myself.
Just messing about..I haven't a clue what I did..I should really learn to write down the stages but it took about 90 minutes.
It is lovely weather here in Cornwall, I do hope you have the same and wishing you all a happy week ahead.

Oh Wow!!
Very different indeed.
Still the stunning detail of the manipulation.
But now you have added movement too
Very effective.

Love this one! Helen has just explained how this differs from earlier work; it is just as beautiful but tremendously dynamic with a great rush of lead-in lines to the multiple explosions of shapes and colours.
By the time I remember to write down a manipulation process it is always too late Sad

Writing down always seems to distract from the creative process - maybe a small tape recorder might be a good answer - I often talk to myself when I "play" around.
This turned out beautifully, hope you can remember the steps and create another treasure.

22 Sep 2008 9:48PM
Ah now you've been playing games with your flower images again. For some reason this one creates the impression of looking upwards towards the ceiling of a magical palace in a fairytale land. More 'Alice in Wonderland' than 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds' for me.

22 Sep 2008 10:08PM
This is really wakky, but very very effective. Well done even though you can't remember what you did, it's great. Trish
