Hyacinth collage

I started this collage on holiday - I pasted on the large image of the hyacinths, which I got from a magazine. I then drew the hyacinths in the top right corner with soft pastels. I finished it this afternoon - I pasted on patterned papers in the bottom right and top left corners. I then applied patches of gesso and titan buff acrylic paint. Once dry I added a wash of magenta. A variety of paint colours were then dabbed on through sequin waste. Larger dabs were added randomly in different colours. To finish, the owls (Graphicus) and other images (Tim Holtz) were then stamped on top using brown StazOn ink.
