My Most Favorite Collage Ever

I don't do a lot of collages usually. But I saw this face in a mag and I had to do this.
I used metallic paints for the background and just layered them over each other. I used colors that would compliment the butterflies. I was going to add some flowers and other things, but in the end I decided to K.I.S.S and just add some peacock feathers.
I just love the eyes, kind of magickal and almost little creepy and beautiful.
So there it is, my most favorite collage ever.
Peace

This is amazing Mary no wonder you are so proud of it, the eyes certainly look different through the butterfly mask,and I love the colors and the use of the peacock feathers....

WOW, this is a beautiful piece. I hope you keep the original for yourself.... but do believe you'd make some $ if you made some cards with this as the focal point on the front.
It's so pretty......

The feathers work better than the flowers might have.
