Linda Lee Marletto
I have been crafting and journaling for many years. Add a computer to that mix and a whole new world opened up for publishing my own booklets and illustrating them with photos and clip art. I took an introduction to Photoshop class which showed me a different way of expressing my artistic side. I also was inspired to try digital collage after reading Digital Art Wonderland by Angi Sullins & Silas Toball. Instead of a cutting or tearing paper, gathering different materials and objects to create a collage on canvas or other surfaces, I could create a piece of art digitally. The possibilities are endless, only limited by my imagination.
Starting with Photoshop Elements and later adding Photoshop software I was able to begin creating art that was inspired by photos, especially scenery, objects and even colors. I make my own digital papers called “textures”, scan in what I paint, take photos of objects to upload, and even use digital brushes. With software, I combine images that I digitally cut up, use digitally created textures, add scanned images, using multiple layers, blending effects, and filters to create digital collage art. Sometimes I add inspirational or encouraging words and combine them with my art. There are elements of mystery and nostalgia, whimsy, inspiration, fantasy and reality what I do. I divided my art into different “worlds” based on what inspired me for that particular piece, like a scene or a texture, if I used colors that were brighter and lighter or had darker values, if I used words intended to encourage and comfort, or just something so different I need a whole new world gallery.
