Working Digitally

Do you digital collage? I've been dabbling, and some of my work is a sort of physical/digital hybrid.

This image is almost an entirely physical mixed media collage. The wee white 'sparkly bits' and floaty hearts were added digitally.

Alpha Stamps is now offering digital collage elements and I got to play with a few images (and add a few of my own!). The following two pieces are entirely digital...

While I don't think that anything could replace working with paper and the physicality of cutting and pasting and playing... there's something to be said for digital work. Digital collage often has an amazing 'other world' feel to it. If nothing else, working digitally can help to make the impossible an almost reality :)
