Finally, after many attempts, I completed DJ's Masking Part 2 exercise.
There were so many steps to this collage.  I got so lost in all the layers I had to do it over and over.  Each time I would think I had it and something wasn't quite right.  I'd start over.  It's finally done.  The plus to doing it over and over is I really get used to each step and what is being accomplished with it.  This butterfly was extracted from another photo, and I had to do it several times.  I've become a wiz at the quick selection tool.  I didn't quite get the hang of the polygonal lasso tool to use on the antennae, but you wouldn't know there weren't any antennae unless I told you, right?

Hi Marilyn
Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm so glad I came over, this digital collage is STUNNING! I'm so impressed, it's all so clever.
Re inktense pencils - I love the deep colours, not played with them much yet, but I think my prismacolours are still my very favourite, even though they're not watersoluble.

This turned out very nice but it sounds like it took a lot of work to get there.
