This is a piece I made after Hollie, (Holliewood Studios) at http://www.deviantscrap.com/ asked me if I would showcase an example of alternative applications for digital collages. It demonstrates how digital media can transform into textural work. And that for me is a personal goal since like many, I prefer original and dimensional work. I am now experimenting with the use of Caran D'Ache water-soluble crayons on cotton to add another dimension to my cloth collages. The card next to the cloth skinny below is a paper print of the original digital collage with handwritten text and crayon added.
Textile and Surface Design Artists aren't at all new to this concept, but for some, it is a relatively new way of employing all of the new digital kits and images available online.
