Photoshop - (for beginners)

Using Photoshop as an inspiration for making other pieces of artwork - works wonders!  The ideas are endless, but here's a few simple ideas using a sample piece of embroidered applique I'd stashed away ages ago!
This is the original piece of applique work - I use a flatbed scanner ........

This is using the 'palette knife' filter, which adds a very painterly feel.
This is the 'water paper' filter which adds a very soft, hazy touch.

This is using the 'radial blur' filter
just a small photo of clear buttons
using the 'poster edges' filter - these could give you other ideas for drawings/paintings, textile pieces .... the problem is you could go on for ever - just using very simple Photoshop techniques.
