Birth of a Pillow Design

Just a little GIF that shows a summary of  the stages in Photoshop that one of my images goes through to become a tiled Gothic mandala based design :-)

Choosing the image is the most important. I've learned that it needs to have small elements, not large shapes and lots of space around shapes, to generally have a chance of working in the end ot create an interesting design.

Once I get my final image, then I often have to do some tweaking with contrast, and sometimes I'll use artistic filters to simplify the shapes. It's all a matter of just playing around till you get something you like :-) Then the possibilities to alter colour palettes later on are there if you save your PS file of your created mandala :-)
