  1. I’ve been trying my hand at collage lately, so I can really appreciate how good this is.

      Thanks very much Kerry. The “paper’ is a digital creation using modification of paper scans & photos of different types of textures. I then create layer pieces that have different modified patterns ( I used kaleidoscope , sphere & circle effects) . The large square silhouette was originally a photo of a book cover from an art textbook (my wife’s collection). The cover is worn & yellowed taped. I modified it to create the faint ghostly image.

  2. That’s beautiful, Joseph. Earthy and ethereal. How did you do that?!

      I’ll have to do a tutorial page. 😀 Basically , I created a series of multiple layers of textured material based on paper photos & scans. I created embossed kaleidoscope patterns that are layered into the paper texture. As you accurately observed, I went for an aged soft earth tones that worked well with the embossed effects & the layered images.
