5 x 7 Collage

I just finished this 5" x 7" collage. It's done on a canvas board and I punched holes at the top with the Crop-a-dile and threaded ribbon through for a hanger. I love this sweet image - she looks so innocent. This is various torn papers over which I wiped a thin, random layer of acrylic paint. I also dry-brushed red paint around the edges, glued on buttons and stamped the swirl. Very quick and easy - the hardest part was finding just the right image!
