A while back I had created a tutorial for creating digital collages with Sketchbook Mobile. One of my favorite iPhone Apps for creating collages is Layers. When I first got Layers I was disappointed in it after seeing all the impressive artwork that other “fingepainters” were creating. It took me about a month to really figure out how to use Layers. I usually do a mash up of several apps when use Layers, importing artwork i’ve made from Brushes and Sketchbook Mobile.
In this collage I’ve used an abstract design I created in Sketchbook Mobile for the bottom layer:
I added some collage elements from photos I had taken and a Lotteria card:

I layered these elements over an old black and white photo that I tinted using a clear layer.
Lastly I added text from a book. I Layered the images together and used the eraser tool to edit out parts of the pictures I didn’t want:
