I found this poor deceased tree behind my house and scanned it in using a black towel to try and pop those awesome mushrooms out. They are supposedly called Turkey Mushrooms and the scanner didn't do them justice, in my opinion. They are purple, brown and olive green and have a velvety feel. I wanted to make pants out of them! I'll have to settle making pants out of this fabric and wearing these fungis proudly.

thanks tallulahdahling and Sarah, (from way back in Nov.) I had fun making this into a repeat. No matter what we humans create designwise, nature always trumps us with the textures and patterns that can be found on the most ordinary things.

How unusual, fascinating, strange, and appealing! Well done!
Gorgeous color palette. Gorgeous!

Thanks Sammyk and ttoz! I'm putting that joke in my mental catalog of good bad jokes, Drea. Samarra, I do have boney legs with big Olive Oyl knees, so being called stick legs hasn't hurt my feelings since the second grade, though if they call me fung-a**, it probably would.
A mushroom walks into a bar and the bartender says, "We don't serve your kind here." and the mushroom says, "Why not? I'm a fungi!"
Sorry, someone had to!:) Seriously though, this is beautiful, Cean - the detail and texture is amazing!
Oooooh, you had me at 'poor deceased tree'! Love the texture and detail. There needs to be more fungus support out there in the world and I think a pair of pants in this biologically magnificent pattern is great honoring way to begin. Don't let anyone call you 'stick legs' in them. Well done!
Thans so much victoria, dl, mona, and francine! I'm not seeing white lines on my end, Mona, so I hope it's just a viewing issue,*crossing fingers and grimacing* Francine, let's just say it took a saw, sneaking up the back stairs at work with an armload of firewood, and scanning with a black towel. Our IT guy gave us that trick for scanning mosaics, so I guess that's what got the details in there. Then it was just some frankenstein reassembling of dismembered parts and cleaning up of mold spores and viola, portable tree!
Amazing!!! How did you do this? I spent the afternoon climbing a tree to cultivate these fantastically textured spiked golf ball sized seed pods, but my scanner wouldn't show love to anything that wasn't squished flat against it. You got all this gorgeous detail in there - wow!
Ooo... I still see a line with the fat quarter view. One way I have gotten around this is to create the drop or half brick (or whatever) myself in the original design. It seems to only happen when I use anything other that the standard repeat with some designs.
Very fungy... I mean, funky! :) Great idea!
This is lovely. You can see a lot of detail in this in the swatch view.
Makes a really interesting stripe! Nice find.
Patty, after seeing the mess the log left on the scanner, I'm pretty sure the mushroom pants would have been pretty uncomfortable, and probably would have disintegrated while I wore them, so the fabric version is a better idea, turns out.And I agree with you both, it does take the long view to show the treeness of it.
ooh, turkey mushroom pants, sounds like fun! I agree with rae, the 2 yard view is fantastic!
Thanks guys, and super duper thanks on the heads up about the line. I've got in and tweaked and I think I got the sucker! Weavingmajor, thanks for the info about the rescanning. Unfortunately, my tree is at home and I use the scanner here before work in the early morning, so there won't be time to rescan, so I'll just have to be satisfied with brownish mushrooms, though I was happy with the details that came through, too! And I'm keeping your instructions in my pocket for future scans.
love it, especially getting to fully appreciate it at 2 yrds as well as up close
What an exciting bunch of fungus! They scanned in beautifully!
Love the tree and mushroom. So pretty. btw, I'm seeing white lines just about at the 5 3/8th's inch mark.
I know we can't 'excessively digitally manipulate', but I also know the pre-sets on the scanner don't always capture the true color. Can you adjust the color levels when you scan in and capture more of the lovely colors? Personally I don't think that's wrong, so long as it looks 'right' in the end, I think that's compensating for the limits of a scanner. You're instructing the scanner to look at it properly, that's all. <p>Loss of color notwithstanding, I love the stripes you've made with the tree trunk. So much visual interest and the colors that you did capture are lovely. I can't believe how well this scanned - I would have thought the sides would have blurred or been too dark to see - it looks cool!
loving your tree with mushrooms cean, if there is one thing i love more than bark, it's mushrooms/fungi, very hard to scan tho...you did a great job!!
