Picniking with Music

I've been Picniking again! As I've got a subscription I may as well make the most of it (it would be rude not to) - so I do many times over :-) and today, my theme was MUSIC. I got a music book from a charity shop recently which has the piano music and words to 'The Gondoliers' by Gilbert & Sullivan.*

Today I scanned some of the music pieces into my computer and did some more photo magic, courtesy of Picnik. First up we have this:

and I was really pleased with the 3d effect I (accidently!) created.
Next we have this:
 ..where I have modernised the old music with bright colours

...I also used the same original image to create this:

These two I just used because the words amused me (click to enlarge):



On this one I like the graphic quality of the image, and the transparency/velum look:

This one I did for fun!:
and this one! :-)
*According to the blurb, it was first performed at the Savoy Theatre in London in 1889.

I decided to finish off the tye dying I started yesterday and very bravely decided to OVERLAP the circles.  Here is the finished bag, front:
Close-up:
and then I did one 'circle' on the back using all the colours:
 
Just so you know, the colours do dry paler.  This is how this pattern looked when I made it: 
Thanks for looking,
See you tomorrow,

Hi Nicky,

I came across your blog and I had to comment!

I'm on the Picnik team and I had to stop and say that the images you have created are really wonderful. Looks like you're having a lot of fun and getting creative with Picnik in a unique style. We would love for you to join a few conversations in our new forums: http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/picnik

Thanks for sharing!
Ali, Picnik Team :)

Thanks for the compliments Ali from the Picnik team, but where's my commission cheque? lol. Only joking,(kind of!)

I'm happy to mention Picnik when I use it though as I love a lot of its features. You can even do a fair bit for free. Ooh, there I go again, rave, rave. I would be on a fortune if you paid commission (sigh!)...

Great work once again. Love the red on the black (probably because they're my favourite colours) Your bag looks great too BTW. I'm a photoshop girl I'm afraid - no commission earned from me. I must have a play though. Jaqui x
