Here is my entry!
  Ive been doing these collage's for a while now and this is my Valentine's one. It is made on a 8 1/2 by 11 piece of watercolor paper. I first use a wash of paint for the background color then glue down pictures and patterns from old magazines (I just love replacing heads with animal ones lol) Then I alter the images with markers, pens, pencils, and whatever else I can find. I seal in everything with a coat of mod podge. The quote is by Robert Browning.
