"Shhhhh!" Digital Collage - CorelDRAW - PhotoPaint

Scanning fun with my Canon MP495 and various old magazines. I used pieces of advertisements and news items Icons for today's image. I created the main image in CorelDRAW using Acquire from the scanner. It was all a bit unconsciously done I just selected images that were attractive to me and placed them as I scanned.

I used the bar code maker in DRAW and that is where I placed my signature. I had grouped all the scanned pieces in DRAW and copied them to the clipboard then I opened PhotoPaint and pasted New from Clipboard into the program full size, Approximately 8"x10".

I used the wand to select lines of white and filled them with the fill tool, black. Using Papersize I added a black border, then switched to a red one to frame the completed image. I used the Tone Curve to add depth and upped the saturation by 9 for a color boost.
