still not sure if this is complete

But this fits my mood perfectly
And here is the value of taking pics of your work and looking at them. You have a different viewpoint, another eye so to speak. In that first photo, the black dot tissue paper in the right hand page looks to be too much. I think I need to break it up with another piece of collage.  But overall, I am pleased.

There is a lot of added collage to this spread. I used old scrap book papers to cut out a top for the girl, then tore some more pieces to adhere to the right hand said for balance. That paper was slightly painted, first with gesso in spots, then with a few smears of Dina Wakely Lime paint. The flower is all water color except for a touch of heavy body white acrylic paint in the petals to brighten it up. I did 3 layers of shading around the petals to achieve that darkness, then pulled it out with a wet brush.

I have the entire weekend to play because our weather will indeed be crap. Snow/sleet starts tonight, turns to rain for all of next week. Spring. Oh, boy.
