BONUS COLLAGE!
See my journal regarding the Seven Day Digital Art Collage Smackdown that this is a part of! [link]

This was created in collaboration with Angi Sullins - with portions taken from a traditional collage she created.

The funny thing is, her collage was called "Rabbitude" - very much featuring a lovely white rabbit. But all *I* could see were these fantastic orange details that made me think of goldfish, and koi!

So, I nabbed those details, and voila! Splendiferous was born. I tried to keep the chunky look of handmade, cutout collage with the original details I liked, and blend it with the smoother, texturized elements that I adore making with Photoshop.

You can't really tell here, but see the scales on those fish? Each one was hand placed, made from another detail element in her collage. :D Oi!

A link to her original will follow shortly!

The colours are gorgeous. I love the split mid-screen, with the opposite colour used for the fish. So vibrant and such great details. This is a very beautiful piece. :heart:
