Original Clip Art Roses

I have taken photos of some of my oil and watercolor paintings and played with them to make a sheet of clip art roses. I love using roses in my collage and altered book stuff and I wanted something original, so I played with Print Shop and some of my photos and Viola!

It was fun. First I imported the photo, carefully cut out the image from the background (enlarging the image helps with this) and then tweaked the image to have clarity and variety. I like using slightly greyed versions to make them look faded and old.

Here are some board dividers for an altered Book of Shadows in a Rose/Pink theme, that I actually made these for:
I have made a sheet of these available at my Artfire Shop that you can download:
