Thai iced tea and digital collages-- how fulfilling.

This past week I (re)joined the Polyvore community which has proved as interesting as I thought it would be. I all ready knew what the website was all about-- user generated graphics, layouts, and collages of fashion items posted all over the internet. If its been photographed, it's more than likely available on the site. From the occasional browsing of Woman's Wear Daily (WWD), I gathered that Polyvore was finally being taken seriously-- and by finally I mean, probably for the past couple years- where have I been??

Anyway, I heard about there being contests with collages so I figured it was worth a shot to join once again. Glad that the interface and I aren't the best of friends or else I could get totally hooked! I still prefer Photoshop for all my graphic needs, of course.

The last collage with Dita is obviously my favorite-- I was finally starting to understand the different features of the graphic interface by the time I made it-- knew more of what I was doing. I could probably spend hours browsing and commenting on other people's "sets" but I'm limiting myself to the occasional weekly visit; I have more important things to concentrate on-- and I mean that in the most positive way imaginable.
