My surreal collage shows dancers dancing on a rainbow in the sky and me flying almost like a fairy. I used feathering on some of the dancers to blend them into the rainbow and sky more. I also used juxtaposition to blend the wings into the dancer to make it look like she’s flying. Dislocation was also applied, and I changed the opacity.
I first took a picture of me in a scenery that would fit into the painting (walking through a forest on a beautiful fall day). Then, I used my magic wand to cut out the background. Using the clone stamp, I was able to easily soften the edges of the picture and merge it into the painting. By resizing the image and putting it to scale, I made the photo perfectly blend into the painting.
I used a scene from the movie “Charlie St. Cloud” and added my dad, my sister, and I riding on a jet ski in the background. To make it seem more realistic, I used the feathering technique, the blur tool, and clone stamp. The masks really helped blend the images together.
