Mixed Media Collage

I love the way this turned out.
I'd had some of the paper for awhile and liked the flowers in it with the fine ink lines around them. So once I had the papers collaged on the canvas I painted the vase and flowers,copying the flowers from the paper. Then I did the inking around them. Of course now I wish I'd bought more of that paper!!
