The Pedigree of Honey



The pedigree of honey
Does not concern the bee;
A clover, any time, to him
Is aristocracy.
Emily Dickinson, 1924 


Materials & Tools

Painted background paper
Various collage papers already painted, like "Lavender" from last week
Vintage bee image from The Graphics Fairy

Photoshop


1. Choose and scan all images and the background that you wish to use.  Scan at least at 300dpi if you are going to want to be able to print out your piece in the future.



2. Size and arrange digital collage pieces, and fade the edges.  Adjust colors as needed and play with the opacity of each.

3. Another way to integrate pieces that don't fade in nicely is to cover them with another transparent layer of the background, and erase as needed to allow the image to show.
