Immersed In Moonlight | LMAC Collage FreeStyle No. 78

LMAC-FreeStyle-No78.jpg

Each week, the LMAC Community run by @shaka holds a collage contest round for its members to participate. In the Community, you'll discover a variety of themed contest entries submitted for consideration in the contest. Hopefuls anxiously await result indicating where their creative collage scenes will be chosen for the final round of competition. If you'd like to participate, just visit the LMAC Community account here for details on the latest contest.

The LMAC Community also offers an opportunity for members to create "freestyle" collage themes and post to the Community. In the freestyle option, you have more freedom to design your creations without having to incorporate the weekly contest photo. You still, however, have rules in which you must abide by when posting to the Community.

For my Freestyle Collage No. 78, my theme is immersed in the moonlight. I wanted to portray a female bathing in the moonlight. She's content, as she has a beautiful swan to accompany her. Surrounding her were all the familiar elements of home. Even a path leading to the other side of the field where she could view the moonlight.

In preparing my theme, I located a lovely meadow in the moonlight. I decided to pair it with the LMAC Round 199 image of a house. For the female, I wanted a modest image of a woman bathing in a body of water.

Below are the additional images for the cat, bridge, and fairy I included to give a familiar home feel to my theme:

I use Canva as my design program to blend the images into one scene. Below are my procedures so that you can see how I utilize the tools available to me in my Annual Pro Membership Subscription.

I knew I wanted a shadow in the moon, so to a blank, white canvas, I added my fractal.

I then switched background color to black, then resized the fractal to fit the screen.

Added the meadow image. Unsure about whether to place it in the foreground or background, but decided on the foreground.

Resized the meadow to fit the top half of the screen. Duplicated the bottom half to fill entire canvas.
