I had an idea, how to make my page gaudy and this time I decided to try an all digital collage. I love Photoshop and hadn’t played for a while…
I started to look around for graphics (found some on The Graphics Fairy page again – shown below and the others are photographs I found via google ‘crazy hats’)
For the background I wanted to use some of my digital brushes (my secret addiction!!! I LOVE making those – but then again time is so limited to use them as much as I like).
All set – now I just added on and cut to fit all the hats together. (Well, not ‘just’ – it took time and patience to cut digitally ;))
I just love how the cat examines that Hat Lady. First I thought I’ll give him a speech or thought bubble, but then decided it would be more fun to let everyone give him their own thoughts 😉
Here they are – The Cat and The Hat Lady (or ‘Envy and Gaudy’)
And here are all the images I used for it (except background and brushes – I made those myself)
