Huge diamonds - I think the 10carat round (I am going by memory so that could be wrong) would look quite nice in my current setting :-) and Marie Antoinette's 20 carat earrings would also look lovely!
a bejeweled ring
more crazy necklaces
more huge rocks
...and...the Hope Diamond
Just so you know you could lose an eye by being short and trying to see the hope diamond. Those ladies and gents are vicious trying to get their photos. At one point I thought I was going to stand there all day when people would not let me AWAY from the display...then they realized that the display rotated and I was no longer on the "good" side! :-)
These lovelies filled out nicely...
And all the purple is awesome...just need a little more orange and we will be all set for football season ;-D

Ok so I love all the digital collages that I see on blogs everywhere. I know they are using great software (that costs lots) to create these works of art but I wanted to see if I could do it myself, without tons of effort, or money. This is what I ended up with. I used Picasa to get the images lined up neatly -- I used contact sheet as the collage style then cropped to get just the images. Then I loaded the collage image into picnik to add some text and borders. Probably not the quickest or cleanest way to make a collage but it works!
Do you make digital collages? How do you do it?
