Since you asked…
Apparently my dear readers are enjoying this what if sequence I’ve posted and more than one of you suggested I try a different color than black. So with my trusty and crude, ( I can assure you I didn’t spend a whole lot of time getting every pixel accurate) Photoshop skills, I knocked out another option and it is a pretty cool way to sample if you will, what something might look like in the colors I’ve selected.
First, I made this shearling and silk denim jacket back in December of 2011. I still have a huge hunk left of the silk denim. It has a nice texture and it is sort of denim-y color. Since it isn’t so dark, I thought I’d give it a whirl.
Backstory… I admit. I was a coloring book junkie. I just adored coloring books and I’d spend hours getting each picture perfect. I wouldn’t dare color outside the lines. So this exercise of combining two images, or in this case three, in Photoshop, is really just a crude version of coloring in my coloring books from my childhood. My hand was much steadier with the crayon though, I’m a little wiggly with a mouse and the lasso tool.
So here was last night’s options, the handwoven fabric on the top and bottom and in the middle, both photos with a black linen accent.
And here is tonight’s option, the handwoven fabric on the top and bottom and in the middle, both photos with a silk denim accent. Keep in mind, this is Photoshop, and I wasn’t careful in matching stripes and giving the appearance of on grain.
Have at it…
