Identity

I wanted to do something different for our ATC meeting this month. The theme was whatever we wanted it to be, so I chose “Identity.” I think I know who I am, but identity seemed to give me lots of scope to ponder its meaning in Photoshop—and I decided to use a booklet created by Brenda Shackleford for Artfest last year as a guideline.
If you want to try it yourself, just double click on the image above and download it to your desktop. To print it out, set your paper orientation to “landscape.” The area to cut out measures 10” x 7” …just trim along the outside edge.
To make up the ATC booklet, fold in half, quarters and then eighths as shown below. Open out and cut a slit between the four center panels. Then fold in half horizontally and pop out along the center fold so that the front cover “Identity” is on top.
Sound complicated? If you’re like me, you’ll do better with a demo. Just follow this link for video instructions, but you don’t need a staple as they suggest.

Thank you very much! I can't wait to try this.
It's a wonderful collage, each "page" has it's own beauty.

This is so cool! Thanks for including instructions and video. Although I can't wait to try one of my own I can't imagine that it would look anywhere near as interesting as the one you've created here. You chose a great subject, too. I think no matter how old we get, there are still parts of ourselves that mystify us.
