Collage - In the Garden

This is a collage I made yesterday. It measures 18 x 14 inches.

I started by layering several different colours of acrylic paint, with some additional patches of gesso now and again. Once dry, pasted on some very thin patterned paper and a couple of small pieces of telephone directory. I then added the first picture of the statue (one I had taken on holiday). More brown paint. Then came paint patterns, using sequin waste and different colours of paint. The second picture was then pasted on. I then stamped several different Tim Holtz images using brown Staz On ink. To highlight the statues I went around the edges with some oil pastels. Finally, I added a few dabs of metallic paint. I think I will call it 'In the Garden.'
