The first photograph is my collage at its first stage before being completely altered.  After all the images got glued down on cardboard paper.  I let it dry for a few hours.  I then added a  white wash to blend everything together.  After the wash dried I painted over it with  phthalocyanine blue. It was too dark, so I used burnt sienna mixed with a bit of  titanium white acrylic to tone down the dark blue.  It looked a lot better.  Then I added the images  and the text. I thought that the text stood out too much so I glued tissue paper over the text.  A crimson acrylic was then applied with a key card, to make a border which is not seen in photo.  The basic key to making a collage is layering and more layering and use just a couple of colours.

Love? (incomplete)
