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 20 November 2013 . . . A Quote

These Collage Obsession challenges are so much fun for me. I really like being able to use my imagination on what I want to create using the theme for the week's challenge. If you haven't joined us in the fun at Collage Obsession, please do so. I think you will have some fun, too. Everyone is welcome to join us each week.

For this week, itKuPiLLi gave us this:

A quote

This time the challenge is to illustrate a quote, one of my favorites:

“There’s a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in." - Leonard Cohen

You can express the subject as you like, the text can but don´t need to appear in you collage. Let your imagination fly!

I always like some of Albert Einstein's quotes. Here is the one I chose to use:

“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” ― Albert Einstein

The main image I used is from the ATS-3 (Applications Technology Satellite 3) from 10 November 1967. I was working at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center as a research meteorologist at this time. Launched in November 1967, the ATS-3 was in service for 34 years before finally being decommissioned in 2001. Among its widest-known achievements are the first full-disk, color Earth images transmitted from a satellite. It was really exciting in those early days of having meteorological data from satellites.

For my background I used images I captured on my iMac while playing music in iTunes and having the Visualizer turned on. And, I used the Blend-If portion of the Blending Options of the Layer Styles dialog in Photoshop CS6 to blend the images. Here is what I created.

Please go to Collage Obsession to see all the wonderful collages for this week.

That's all for now.

Live life fully and enjoy.
