Paris wall plaque

I started this piece by collaging pieces of old book pages onto the wood. I then added tissue paper with French words and scenes. Once dry I added some orange and blue acrylic paint through stencils. The top layer was a faux bees wax I made from various acrylic mediums. After this had dried I attached the metal embellishments.
