Collage – Bold Flowers

This is the third in a series of flower collages.  I tried dying a piece of paper towel with colored India Inks for part of the background.  I used that along with magazine papers and old stamps.  I put layers of more colored India Inks,  Neocolor II Caran d’Ache crayons, and a little acrylic paint.  The paper towels made for a rough texture (maybe I was supposed to iron the towels?).  I didn’t plan to use the black ink again but I really like the effect I get with it.  Have a blessed and Happy Easter!!!

    The stamps are a nice touch! I love paintings mixed with a little collage. Great artwork.
