When I received my Flip Pal Mobile Scanner last week, my son and I went around scanning everything, When I say everything I really mean it. we scanned dirt, sand, leather and wood furniture and we even tried to scan the dog’s fur but she would not hold still.

I hope to post projects using the cool textures soon.  The project that I am posting about today is a hand drawn, Indian inspired floral motif that I made into a silk screen.  Somehow I have misplaced the original drawing.  Having the Flip-Pal™ mobile scanner came in handy as I simply scanned the backside of the screen.  Viola! No, fussing.  Once I imported the file from the scanner I worked with it in Illustrator to create the print you see above.
