Seems like most people who embroider realistically or stylized, have done a field of flowers. They seem to go hand and hand. This is my obligatory, albeit truncated field of flowers from a photo taken at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. It is all machine embroidered and took me several hours to complete. I look at it and wonder what kind of handwork might enhance it. Hmmmm… I just don’t know.
Here is a technical question for you. I did this on linen dressmaker’s fabric with a fairly tight weave (I love this fabric!). I scanned it into photoshop and it has a moire effect. How do I get rid of the moire effect? At over 50% (at 200 dpi) it goes away on my screen but that image size is too large to place on the internet. I made the image above larger to help eliminate it. I am computer ignorant and self taught at photoshop so please don’t laugh too loudly when you give me the simplest of solutions….
