Mary has wonderful tips on how to blend colors in this lesson. I have tried to merge the orange/gold and blue hues of the kitty picture with the papers I chose for the background layers. A butterfly adds a bit of whimsy, too!
This was a one-page collage in my moleskine - not much space; but I like working within the confined area.
