Oh lordy! I think I am kind of addicted to this digital collage thing. I'm enjoying taking a vintage photo and revamping it so the original backgrounds are gone. It's fiddly and precise, but it's fun. This little girl gets used alot in my Altered Book class. Look at that adorable knitted dress! I am also enjoying doing monocromatic work-it's interesting to explore layering a single colour in different shades to make it work. This is digital collage attempt #2.
The only thing is that it seems a bit weird to make something and then not have a hard copy in my hand when I am done. I really do need to get some decent paper so I can at least print them off as postcards. I was at the office supply store yesterday and totally forgot to get the paper! I guess I should also get a new black ink for my printer too since it's running low again. Where are my art elves when I need them?
Thanks to everyone who either posted a comment or emailed me to say such supportive things about my first efforts at Photoshop. I hope to improve-I have Photoshop for Dummies on order! In the meantime, I will just keep playing!
