Gold Silk Water, Gold Chinese Silk by 

I love collecting textiles & taking photos during my travels, so I was looking for a way of combining my two loves.

I thought the colours of this gold Chinese silk brocade needed to be with this silhouette of passengers in a canoe at sunset.

The hues of both the photo and textile were adjusted to blend and the textile was scanned and layered with areas faded over the photo

    LOVE the look of this!!!

  • Glad you like it. This was the first thing I put on redbubble, but I kind of gave up on the textiles after that. It’s alot of work getting it to look right & there didn’t seem to be much interest.

    Fantastic idea. It works really well.

  • Thanks, maybe I’ll give the textile/photomontage another go when I’m feeling creative.
