Digital Collage: Autumn Leaves Behind the Paper

Autumn Leaf Collage Wallpaper

 

Inspiration is all around us! A few days ago, the lovely Photoclique on Etsy sent me a scan of a real autumn leaf as a gift of fall’s bounty (we don’t have that on a large scale here in Florida) and that inspired me to incorporate it into a digital paper collage.

I wanted to have an aged paper look so I used one of my digital paper creations as a base. Then, I modified the leaf to look more like artwork. The line art leaves are from my sketch book – scanned, cleaned up and separately layered in. After laying everything on the page and moving it around to get the best layout, it seemed like it needed a little more. After several false starts I found the postmark ephemera in my image library. That added the perfect finishing “paper” touch!

That’s just a peek behind the paper. If you’d like to know more, just drop me note – I’d love to hear from you!
