Neon

As shown on my blog, earlier in the year I did some fabric painting and then played around with some effects in Photoshop. This particular glowing example caught my attention (click to enlarge):
I even got as far as experimenting with some thread drawing to see if I could achieve a similar effect:
At the time, I concluded that the effect would be lost in a large-scale piece. However, there might be some potential for a 12x12 inch illumination...

Oooh, pretty. I especially like the experiments with the thicker threads, and the look of the pink and yellow concentric circles.

That's a coinsidence! I also did some experimenting with Paintshop Pro with neoneffects for my TIF challenge of April, look what I did with it: http://miekenoor.web-log.nl/mijn_weblog/2008/04/finished-tif-ap.html I like your neonbubbles and I agree it does match with the them illumination!

Nice. Is that bobbin work? I agree. I'm not sure it would be effective as a whole piece. Interesting that you are working with black. I was thinking about bright white as a background.

Thanks for the link to your TIF challenge Miekenoor. Threadwork has a lot of possibilities. My sample was done using perle thread and a large-eyed topstitch needle. Bobbin work is another approach but I like to be able to see how the work is developing as I go along.
