Feature of The MonthFor a group with 422 members, I’d love to see more submissions. Perhaps a contest to spice things up?
The theme is our interaction with nature, and the prize will be a single artist feature for the winner on the group’s home page for the following month. The deadline is July31,2012. Winners will announced much more promptly than previously.
Now for this month’s feature:

Digital CollageWhat do we mean by digital collage?Digital Collage4 years ago in Personal More Like This
What’s the difference between a digital collage and a photomanipulation?
The basic definition of Digital Collage is that it is a form of graphic art that uses virtual imagery and textures from different sources pieced and layered together (in a program such as Photoshop) into one final assembled image. The difference between digital collage and photomanipulation is that in a digital collage the artist usually works to make it somewhat obvious that the finished image has been made by “pasting” different images together.
Digital collage tends to rely heavily on traditional collage strategies such as ~
Chiasmage - consistent destruction of the primary motifs. The structures of various types of print, of music sheets, letters, geographic and star maps, chessboards or photographs are torn to little pieces and then put together again and glued to a base.

Create realistic rose text using some simple layer styles and custom made brushes. This Photoshop rose text will not be completly made from scratch, we'll have to use a beautiful Rose PNG stock image. A nature inspired text effect can be used in so many creative ways, to decorate your scrapbook for example.

Minimalism and the Rule of ThirdsThe-Art-Of-Collage has been running an interesting challenge: The Two Piece Exhibition.Minimalism and the Rule of Thirds2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The rules are simple: you may use whatever support or background you like. But, only two pieces may be glued to that background. However much of the background remains visible is up to you. Each member may submit up to two pieces to the Two Piece Exhibition.
Apart from causing extreme angst for collagistes (like myself) who battle to restrain themselves and who need to buy glue sticks in bulk (or, if they are digital, need to have at least ten layers in the background before they even start adding semantic elements); the exercise has been an interesting test of composition skills and nerve. When you only have two elements to place, they have to be placed perfectly. Most of us do this by trial and error, instinct and intuition, and we kind of know when it "feels right".
I was curious, however, to test the Rule of Thirds and see how it played

Assemblage and Collage FeatureHi all, getting restless, time to do a new feature.Assemblage and Collage Feature2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Finally submitted my last assignment at 4pm today. I think I'm done with study now. I want to apply my skills instead of keep accumulating them. I'm shockingly exhaustacapated.
Now this feature is about an area of art that I've really just begun to explore and I find it as exciting as heck.
There is something about pulling random images together, or found objects, and trying to make the seemingly disconnected connect. Arguably, on some level, everything is connected. What draws us to place things the way we do?
From the limited experimentation I've done with collage to date, I've found it to be a powerful way to tap into my subconscious. I sorta flow with what feels right and then stand back
