Digital Collage

As I mentioned in my last post that I am taking an online digital collage workshop. I am only up to my second lesson and in this lesson I am making collage using more images and more layers. I am having a lot of fun with it. I do get frustrated when I can not do what I supposed to do. Well, practice makes perfect, I hope so!

Like a Bird

The collage above was make using the image provided in the workshop, but the background image came from a page of an old book. I scanned and used as background layer. I am quite excited of how it ends up. Good job right?

Happy Birthday Mark

I created this collage for DS Mark's birthday. Mark went to Russia to attend the Modern United Nation (MUN) conference when he was at high school. I thought I would use some of the scenes from Russia as a background and add Mark's photo over it. I then add a layer in sepia tone on top. I am very please of how it turned out.

I love your new work with photography! You should be proud. I struggle so hard learning new things, especially harder computer programs. I usually only figure out half of what they're meant to do.

I love these images!
