Scanning Cardboard

There are so many fun pieces you can utilize in collage work. Two of my favorite finds are cardboard and catalog pages. In this piece I have a piece of cardboard from packaging. I sat and tore box up and then with a scissors I pealed back side to reveal that rippled corrugated look you see above. Another piece used here is the torn cover of a Restoration Hardware Catalog. The rest here is little finds online. I scan all elements at 800 dpi to get a really nice large clear image to work with. I also find useful to have different color sheets of red and black thick paper to scan behind image so it makes it easy to select from background in Photoshop. This piece is entitled: Sage in Thyme.
