I have learned that combining images for digital collaging and such is called compositing. Anyway, that is what I think it means. I could be misunderstanding the term.

I have been playing with the super macro mode on my digital camera.

And playing around in Photoshop with some of the images.

I kind of like the way this one turned out.

I am soo happy to have refound the super macro setting on my camera. I had forgotten how to get to it for a while there....

This is my favorite type of photography.

Lucky shot

I got one of those incredibly lucky shots today. This guy was right outside my door. He alighted just as I walked out with my camera.

Radiant Rain color wash sprays by LuminArte

I love working with this stuff.
Very very messy. I worked outside. ;)
Great colors.

This is my favorite piece so far.

I saw some work done with color wash sprays on Susan Chong's blog. I loved what she had done with leaves and had to give it a try.
Just enough detail to make it interesting.
I tried some other color combos too.
I'll probably get a lot of use from the photos of these papers.
Beautiful stuff.

Radiant Rain

I used some uninked, unmounted rubber stamps to get the designs on these.
Pretty leaf
More leaves- lots of layers.
I am really liking this stuff.

Passport ATC folder

I was so intrigued with the Passport folder thing for ATCs. I don't know why they call it a passport folder. It is ATC sized. ???
Linda at After Midnight Stamps has been doing this project as a class at some of the rubber stamping conventions.
I got to play with the idea when I was visiting her. We had some gorgeous papers we had colored with LuminArte spray mists. I did some stamping and embossing on them.
Then I made an ATC to put in the center pocket
Added another simpler ATC and tucked one of her business cards in behind.
This thing has LOTS of pockets and hidey spaces.
It is just too cool.

I had a lot of fun with this.
