Photoshop collage


Photoshop collage, originally uploaded by pattiedmon1.

In my spare time, I've started playing in Photoshop again. I did this collage a couple of weeks ago, and, since I haven't been able to upload photos directly to Blogger, I'm experimenting with Flickr. If anyone else has had similar difficulties I'd appreciate hearing about it.
This collage is composed of a photo of my Aunt taken in the early 1950s, a photo from last summer of roses draping over the back gate and a poem that I wrote in sixth grade, which is, hopefully faint enough for the text to be visible without the words being too readable.

Photoshop is such a vast playground I have stayed away since beginning to work in mixed media. Years ago, when I had to stop working in the darkroom, first because of being pregnant, then because I never had the chunks of time to devote, I did a lot of photo manipulation, painting and other fun stuff. I'm taking a Visual Journaling Workshop now, so I'd better get back to gluing - week 2's exercise. Still feels foreign when I don't know what I want the page to be about but, I can tell from the pain that these muscles definitely need stretching!

Hey Patti..I left Blogger for troubles uploading photos...from what I remember though is that it is very picky about the size..so..if you're making fancy PS collage art...make sure to double check the size before you upload. Hope you get it sorted out!

Well aren't you clever? I don't know how to work in Photoshop. This looks very nice. I like the components and the comopsition. I should learn how to do more with my computer, but I only have so much free time.

Oh I love this Patti, just perfect. This is exactly the type of digital collage I'm trying to achieve. Good going girl!
