Cut Flowers

I used painted phone book papers on this piece.  I glued painted paper pieces onto a piece of watercolor paper.  I painted over the entire piece with a light layer of  acrylic paints.  Then I cut the flower and leaf shapes from more painted phone book pages.  I used Caran d’Ache crayons to add more color and outlined all the shapes with  black crayon and a black Stabilo pencil.
