Project Description

We will make a digital collage, you can download the images that I use and follow along or find your own images with the tips that I give you.

Please upload your project, I am happy to take a look at it and give you any tips if you want!

Also if you have questions while you are making it, share them with me and I will try to answer!

These are some links to Flickr galleries that can help you find the perfect retro image:
