AJC 2014 digital collage #1

Tangie is doing the Art Journal Caravan one last year and then it'll all be over. Right now the cost is $39.95 which you get back in the form of credit to use in her shop. If you like to do digital journaling, or want to get started in it, this is a deal you shouldn't pass up.

I recently made my first collage using the initial kit you get when you sign up. When I don't do it for a while, I forget how much fun digi collaging is. You can't make a mistake - the ink never runs, the paper doesn't tear, the glue stick doesn't get all over the place (or is that just me?) - and you can try any number of effects before settling on the ones you like best. It's very cool.

There's no deep meaning to this piece (I don't do deep), I just used elements I liked and played around with blending modes, levels and hues until it seemed 'done' to me.

  1. Love it! I also signed up for that and this week plan to play with it and attempt to remember what to do -- should have asked for pointers last weekend! LOL Love the dark richness of your spread!

  2. I LOVE your digicollage! Maybe I need to try this? Would love to hear more about it from you. Happy New Year!

  3. WOW - love this! I've been contemplating how I want to approach this year in terms of art commitment - what I want to accomplish, etc. and one of the things I've missed is digital playing. Your collages remind me why - this is great!

  4. You "don't do deep". I love that! Made me smile & chuckle.
