I have recently been making SoulCollage® cards which are done by collaging whole images together . I love the effects created by the changes in background and juxtapositioning of previously unrelated images. Most people do these with magazines, scissors and paste but I've been mostly doing them digitally. The above image is a variation on one that I call The Relaxation Teacher - I put it together specifically for this week's Illustration Friday's theme of Green.

The colors are good enough to dive into - all cool. Which, here, is not good since it's cold and the heat is on. I'd like this image on my porch in the middle of August. It would be perfect.
Oh glorious, glorious day, for me to discover this collage today when I'm feeling so cranky. I love the fish swimming in the air, leaves in the background.
Very juicy image. I love that you've used a fish out of water.
Wow, way to go Caroline. I didn't even have to check the If site either! I really like the idea of juxtaposing unrealted images together and making it work, as is here. This is really vibrant and dreamlike. Looking forward to more from you!
Wow...love the blending of all the colors!
Really good, Caro!
Great idea to use the tree as background.
What a lovely verdant green it is, too! Even though the fish is out of water, this still leaves me with a feeling of a peaceful - if surreal - dream.
Sorry to hear its not good colours for you - here its been warm, very warm for April.
GG - Glad you like it. My relaxation teacher card does help me get rid of crankiness too!
Andrea - thank you O mistress of fish!
Steve - thanks.
Michelle Lana - hello welcome - thank you I do like to do my collages digitally to get that blending.
Cream - thanks - its a great horse chestnut isn't it!
Tinker - Ah you are close to what I feel the message is... :-)
I love the composition and colour of this one Caroline, I'd really like this one and the one with the butterfly, they seem to have an endless beauty that I would like to look at daily!
Love your collage. Colors are just perfect! :)
Happy Easter! :)
Beautiful, I'm sure you could sell cards with this on.
Jo - thank you - I'm glad you like them so much!
Pati @-;-- hi! Thank you!
Davem - the creative commons licenses probably aren't for commercial use... but thanks for the compliment!
What a gorgeous, soothing image.
nice job, great colors
You've done a wonderful job of creating content by relating various things together. It forces the viewer to construct a narrative between the objects and entities. Very dreamy! Very cool!
I'm amazed by the beauty of what you have done. Dreamy! :)
