Yikes! It's Wednesday Already

I had great intentions the last 2 days to get lots of arty stuff done and in the end life has got in the way as it so often does.  So last night I gave myself permission to use the couple of hours I had with just having a play.  I have to get out of the mindset that I need a whole day to create.

SO, I took a picture that was given to me by a friend and decided to see what I could do with it using the Shape Tool in Photoshop Elements.  This is the original picture:

To make it into an abstract background, I changed the Hue/Saturation and then applied the Cutout Filter:

I decided that I wanted to create shapes which could be appliqued onto some fabric so this is what I came up with.  There are loads of free shapes to download on the internet - unfortunately you cannot create your own shapes in Photoshop Elements; only in the full version of Photoshop.

The cup shapes I used were a free download from the internet and I didn't record who the creator was so I am sorry that I am unable to give them the credit they deserve:
