Welcome to EarlK Design!


The EarlK Design blog consists mainly of entries that show how to do things using Adobe Photoshop that I hope you will find helpful and give your creative mind more tools to work with.

I use Adobe Photoshop CS6, and sometimes Adobe Illustrator CS5, Lightroom 5, and Corel Painter X. However, I believe that much of what I show can be done using Photoshop Elements.

Collage Obsession Challenge . . . 29 May 2013

For the week of 27 May 2013, itKuPiLLi  gave us :

We have now open challenge - you can create what every you like. Let you creativity flow. :))

In my father's old photo album their is one photo that I just have to use for this collage. It is a photo of four pigs in a pen at the Los Angeles County Fair on opening day of the first fair on 17 October 1922. And this is the only photo from the Fair. Why only a photo of pigs and no other photos?

Here is my collage.


Here is a screen shot showing my layers that were used.


I opened a new 12 x 12-inch, 300 ppi, RGB, white background document. On a new empty layer above the background, I used the Pattern Stamp Tool to cover the whole layer with one of my watercolors that I had made into a pattern. Then I added in two more watercolor layers that I painted in over portions of the layout with the Pattern Stamp Tool.

Then I brought in the photo of the Ferris Wheel at the Fair that was many years after the opening day. I gave kit some adjustments and blended it into the background layers.

I brought in the photo of the pigs and put a white mat behind it. Using Hue / Saturation adjustment layer, I gave the photo a little sepia coloring.

I brought in the airplane with the wing walker . . . made it a silhouette . . . colored it with another watercolor paper using the Pattern Stamp Tool.

Then I made two of my flower-ish flowers for the next layers. I will soon have posted a video on how to make your own flower-ish flowers (very quick and easy to do).

Then I brought in the sign over one entry to the Fair.

Next I put in my journaling.

That's it.


The Ferris Wheel, entry sign, and the wing walker all came from internet images. 


Live life fully.

What a treasure Earl I hope you are printing these and saving them as a history for your family to enjoy.

How wonderful to have your parents' memories available in the form of the photo album. My mother destroyed all family photos just before she died, only telling us after doing so. Fortunately I have just a very few.
Your collage is so interesting - I read every word and examined every picture.
I've just noticed in 'also likes' that you have a post on how to make a pencil picture from a photo - what a co-incidence, I've just posted one from a tutorial suggestion, but I'll have a look at yours now. It's bound to teach me something new! Thanks in advance.

I love your father's photograph, and how you captured the feeling of county fairs in your digital collage. Blessings!
