At "Art Journal Journey" Susi has chosen the intriguing theme "Collage with no faces, no wings, no leaves".
I made an abstract digital collage.
It is a fairly straight forward process using the Photoshop brushes and colours as you would use Real Life ones, and I thought you might like to see the steps.
I started by drawing a free-hand checked background (and the lines are meant to be shoogly),
coloured in a few squares,
made four blurry shapes with the blurry brush, (blurry - why? - just because),
made an arrangement with the shapes
and put this arrangement on to the checked background.
Next, inverted the colours, changing each colour to its complementary colour,
altered the colours again and gave it some uplifting words
and added a little frame.
I'm quite pleased with it, both with the design and the colours, because I think it is really odd, something a bit different, and I like the way the colours in the front glow like fluorescent lights.
Hope you like it too even if you don't use Photo-editing yourself.
