Digicollage-






This is a collage of my different painted backgrounds with digi stamps and cool erasers and all created in Photoshop. I love making these collages because you don't have to get your hands messy or even open a jar of Golden soft gel (but oh how I love soft gel!) And no clean up when you are done. I love to do this because it is like exercising and practicing for when you do feel like getting out the soft gel, all the backgrounds and getting messy.
I am up in Greenville with our daughter, hubby and my precious little peanut, baby Marc.
I really didn't feel like dragging out all the art supplies here today. It's fun and it's still an original created by my clean hands---my clean hands are just doing different things. But actually as fun as this is...it probably takes just about as long or longer to assemble the collage this way!

I love this Martha - just beautiful! Only wish you had an online class for combining Photoshop with calligraphy! (I have an old version of Elements...)

I agree that an online class combining calligraphy/collage/Photoshop would be wonderful. I am teaching myself an older version of Elements, but would love to learn more about combining art and technology.
