Leaf Collages

These two collages were created with a background of found papers. Then I added layers of mulberry paper and cloth and more found papers. The final layers are actual painted leaves and acrylic paint. The top collage includes a redbud leaf, and the bottom collage includes sumac leaves. Both collages measure 6.5"h x 4.75"w and are mounted on 10" x 8" Bristol board.

I like this current series. Are you using some type of gold paint pen to write text over the collages?
