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.
