Inspiration Avenue: Tropical

For this digital collage, I used a scan of a mixed media collage I created some time ago and named "Rainforest." I blended the image with a background of tropical plants from Dover Designs. A very satisfying result.

Very creative! I read about scanning my collages and then printing or reworking them digitally. This is a fun example of what can be accomplished.

Digital is so fantastic...your piece says tropical even by the abundance of detail. I would imagine the tropics teeming with activity in the lush follage. Thanks for your kind comment on my blog. :)
