Another collage

I made another collage today. This is for another friend's birthday - what is it with April birthdays! This is a 4" x 6" artist canvas board. I used Claudine Hellmuth's "peeling paper" technique from her first Collage Discovery Workshop book. Using gel medium, I adhered a page from the phone book to the canvas board and let it dry for a few minutes. I then burnished pieces of masking tape randomly on the surface and tore it off. Some of the paper came off, some remained, achieving a nice texture. I applied diluted acrylic paints sparingly. I stamped some random designs with a permanent black ink, glued on the angel image and painted the halo. I hope she likes it!
