Displacement Maps

To show what my designs would look like on real items, I can use Photoshop to transpose my designs onto the objects and furnishings they have been designed for.

The cushion was my first attempt at creating a displacement map, and I am really pleased with it! It took a few watches of the tutorial but I eventually got the hang of it. I think it’s a really effective way of showing what a design will look like in situ!

I really like the design I have put onto the blind! I think it really suits the blind, but perhaps the repeat would look better slightly smaller, to fit more of it in. The repeat on the bed definitely needs to be smaller, as hardly any ladybirds fit on! I like how the image I chose features colours very similar to those in the design.

The patterns featured on the curtains co-ordinate with the design on the blind, and I think they work very well on the curtains, because they are both stripes, that use a feature of the original pattern.
