Collage on canvas - vintage flowers


This canvas is covered with a whole sheet of lovely vintage paper which was then soaked in thin pva and distressed to allow the canvas to show through in places. Added a photo which has had the backing stripped off so that only the thin layer of print is left, the hearts & brads & the word "bloom". The swirls were hand cut from mountboard, coloured & stamped, ribbon entwined & finally the red roses added.
