Pattern Making - floral theme
Hi!

I would appreciate some help about this. I find it tricky. I need someone to help me think about how to make this look good. Just some input and inspiration.
I'm about to make an arrangement of painted/photo flowers. Imagine an embroidery etc.

I was thinking one picture of each flower. But I really can't decide to which of the pictures I'm going to choose or where and how to put them.

Can't anyone have a look at the pictures below and play a little with them with me? Give your own opinions and ideas.

I want to cut the flowers around their outlines and use the first image - Lamprocapnos spectabilis to create flowing lines with spaces for the other flowers. I would want them in equal size, equal space between and lay themout nice and even.

I don't know if i want it rectangular or square. But I need it to be possible to make pixelart of it, later on.


Lamprocapnos spectabilis,

Anoyone's up for a little Photoshop-help, or maybe can give me a tip for a pattern making forum? An embroidery forum?

Thanks!

I don't really understand how this relates to knitting. Are you wanting to add the flowers to a knitting pattern?

Well, it's actually an embroidery, but as said, I'm looking for some photo-help by anyone with an eye for this (and knitters ARE good with not only needles but also different types of yarn ), or maybe a tip for a pattern making forum? An embroidery forum?
