"So, what is a digital collage?"
Here is the definition of collage from Wikipedia:
A collage (From the French: à coller, to glue, French pronunciation: [kɔ.laːʒ]) is a work of formal art, primarily in the visual arts, made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole.
A collage may sometimes include newspaper clippings, ribbons, bits of colored or hand-made papers, portions of other artwork or texts, photographs and other found objects, glued to a piece of paper or canvas.
The origins of collage can be traced back hundreds of years, but this technique made a dramatic reappearance in the early 20th century as an art form of novelty.The term collage derives from the French "coller" meaning "glue". This term was coined by both Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso in the beginning of the 20th century when collage became a distinctive part of modern art.
So, think Picasso, or to simplify, just follow the rule that I use when I make a paper or digital collage:
Everything must touch.
Unlike Scrapping, or even my beloved Art Journaling, every item on your page needs to touch another- this is what builds cohesiveness and connects the items together. Of course, following a theme you have chosen helps. The cards in the ad above are examples of paper and digital collages I have made. You can't see it, but the heart and disk are touching the rest via a string.
OH! and the prize?? There is a surprise kit for everyone who posts a page!! The kit will be given out on Monday. And a winner gets the GC!
