So, I told you that I ordered a DVD from Elizabeth St. Hilaire Nelson. WOW! Is this so much fun! First, I prepared a wood panel (12" square - 1/2" deep), then drew and painted my sunflower with acrylic paints. Then, I tore up little pieces of painted paper (and other papers) and glued them on with gloss gel medium. I left some of the background un-collaged, but the total sunflower is covered with collage! I think it really makes the painting POP! So, I have named this first attempt, "SunPOWer"!
