Craft Room Collage

Hi folks,

The Craftroom challenge this week is collage,

'A piece of art made by sticking various materials such as photographs and pieces of paper or fabric on to a backing'
The word itself is from early 20th century and French in origin literally meaning 'gluing'.

I don't know about you but I remember doing collage pictures at school and gluing lots and lots of pieces of coloured tissue paper to make a picture  - messy fun, and this was no different!    So here is my picture, lots of images glued - I even got the tissue paper out, glued the IndigoBlue All Saints image, added the tissue paper and wrinkled slightly, when it was dry I rubbed Peeled Paint lightly over to highlight the creases.  The background is IndigoBlu Map, stamped 4 times.  Distress inks used are Tumbled Glass, Spun Sugar, Bundled Sage and Peeled Paint.  The flower is a Mulberry paper, cut with a TH die, swirl is a Marriann die.
Everything was given a spritz with Biscotti Perfect Pearls, although this shimmer doesn't show in the picture.

I am also entering this in:
Challenges for Everybody - Anything Goes
No Matter which Challenges - Diecuts & Punches - (Flower & Swirl)
Make It Monday - Anything Goes

Thats it for now,  and thanks for looking
