Have fun creating with this artsy collection of digital composite downloads.

How are these composite art papers created?

Each of these images is a work of art in itself.
Creating them is like a magical, meditative dance.
Some of the steps are:

  • taking and/or intuitively selecting photos from literally thousands of options.
  • uploading them to an editor.
  • creating a collage with color catcher sheets to use as one of the layers.
  • turning photos of ginkgo leaves and a photo of grasses into vector images.
  • adjusting each photo - using brightness, saturation, contrast etc..
  • followed by choosing 2 photos and layering them digitally.
    Applying blending modes, filters and then again adjusting the colors, contrast etc. in each composite image.
  • layering a third photo. Using blending modes, filters etc..
  • next up: layering 2 composite images.
  • Applying blending modes, filters, contrast, brightness, saturation etc..

I wish that you are bathed in joy when you create with these art papers.
And that you are as delighted about using them as I am about creating them.
Let the magic happen!
