Header Challenge 24th November 2010 – Collage

Now this weeks header challenge theme has been set by by my good friend imac. He has decided he wants us to have a go at creating a collage.

Having checked, a collage is described as being, derived from the French word for "gluing". It originally referred to the physical process of gluing a number of pictures, photos or drawings onto a flat piece of paper, in order to create an artistic composition.

Well I’m sure I can do that with the help of Photoshop. As for the glue well the computer has a cut and paste option  for placing your photos so there is the glue.

My first thought was a group of images, in this case flowers…

Then I thought why not be a bit more adventurous…

by turning one photo into numerous Polaroid's and then sticking them back together again.

I tried a few different ones…

some with backgrounds and some without.

Harriet Collage

I eventually decided on a photo with all my daughters in. I then laid them out and stuck them onto a virtual desk, I hope you like it.

If you want to know how I did it, leave me a request, via my comments section and I will endeavour to write a detailed explanation on it in a future blog.

Don’t forget to check out the other members of the headbangers, imac, Tom-fishing guy, Lanny and Gailsman to see what collages they have come up with for this weeks challenge.

that is so clever

Lanny said...

That is so wonderful, what fun! It goes right along with those gregarious smiles and impish grins, very playful, rather like when they get into Dad's photo box looking for mementos of themselves!
