PSE-4 Collages Lesson 3

Lesson 3 was both fun and challenging. The homework requested was a Collage using many layers and using as many techniques as possible that we have learned.

The result was a final Collage with 20 layers with many pictures as sources, all of which were enhanced and corrected before being modified to suit the collage. I used texture, blending layers, opacity and some things I don't remember. The Scroll Border was a project in itself. It was designed using a special shape as a brush and then duplicating and aligning around 40 layers. I am sure there is a better way to make a border, but I haven't learned that way yet.

I have also posted an exercise that made a darkened portrait. It was not a requested homework posting, but I really liked the result, which is of my son, Brian some 20 years ago. He is enjoying himself at a Walt Disney World Character Breakfast.

Comments and suggestions are always welcome.
