I haven't made a digital collage in a long time and really had fun with this one. I began with the pictures below:
I shot this this morning in the yard.
I also shot this one this morning in the yard.
I scanned this one. It is by Graphic 45.
This is a stamp I used at Scrapbook 101 yesterday.
I sharpened and increased the saturation of the first poppy picture. I cut out (selected) the second poppy and added it on its own layer. I made a custom brush out of the music sheet and put it on a separate layer so that I could adjust the opacity. And lastly I selected the circular stamp and added it on its own layer and adjusted its opacity. I'm not sure I was done, but as often happens when I have had Photoshop open all day, I got an error message and it refused to save it for me. I used the Grab utility to take a picture of it, but I lost all my layers. Here is the flattened collage.
I hope you like it. I stayed up into the wee hours because HughesNet treats 2 AM to 7 AM as free time so I have a bit of speed back.
I am so hooked on Photoshop and there is so much I want to do. I am thinking I may start making some kind of hybrid art with digital elements and then some physical layers as well. We'll see.....
Bye for now!
