During this mornings workshop, we were required to collect images together in preparation for this exercise. We looked at how to merge images together using illustrator.

I achieved this by:
 – Open two images (make sure both images are on the same document)
– Scale the foreground image
– Add ‘Vector Mask’ on top layer
– Change Opacity
– Use the ‘gradient tool’ from white to black  then click and drag from any are to the centre
– Up the opacity

This has definitely been my favourite workshop so far, I really enjoyed using my own images in relation to my theme to create these merged images. I am really pleased with their outcomes.
