It is using a photo-imaging program to produce an interesting layered textile work. The description sounded ok, so I found a couple of images to play around with and set out to give it a go.

It isn't as easy as she says! You have to actually know something about what you are doing. This is when I realised that I am going to have to read the books, the online tutorials, etc and not be able to take it to class and ask the teacher for help.
Out came the book I bought years ago (Photoshop for Right-Brainers by Al Ward), thinking I would be able to use it. It is for people with some knowledge of Photoshop. I had some knowledge, I thought when I bought it. Not enough though. It got put on the shelf and browsed through rather wistfully on occasion. But today I was pleasantly surprised to find that I could actually do one of the examples in Chapter 1 (well, I think I have done it properly). I didn't use the provided disk, I wanted to use my own photos. This complicated things. I wasn't sure what I was doing but I persevered.
So now I have several images.
Tomorrow seems soon enough to think about how to get one onto fabric and then what to do with it. I am feeling good about having made some progress and the images are interesting, I think.
There are several ideas in from Image to Stitch that I can try. That's for another day.
