It’s always fun to use multiple apps to create a certain look, and I often enjoy creating some interesting art (at least I like it!) using Tiny Planet Photos and a few other apps. I’ll run through how I created an interesting image from a very mundane shot.
My first shot was simply a picture of a book sitting on a red table. The book is Pattern Recognition by William Gibson (no spoilers please…I’m only at the start).
I then used Tiny Planet Photos to spin the image into a nice patterned circle. Although hard to see, I like the small profile of a person at the center of the image.
Using Camera+ I cropped the image, added the Light Grit border, and made use of the new Caption feature to add the text to the image. I opened that image in Grungetastic and saved a version that I liked.
At this point I used Image Blender on the two images above to create a slightly more textured version of the shot.
I was almost done, but I figured I’d add just a bit more using one of my favorite helper apps, ToonPaint. I adjusted the settings a bit and created this image.
Using Image Blender once again I blended the two previous images, and ended up with something I liked. Click to see the larger version of this on Flickr.
Now, back to reading the book 🙂
