    • Thanks for your feedback. If you are refering to the photomontage/ mosaic of images, no. I did run a tutorial in class and will send you a response with a link if I publish a tutorial online.
      In the emantime I recommend to use a variety of layers and to play with the layer blending modes and the opcity settings of the layers to get a bit of variety into the appearance.
