Cow Collage Complete!

I have been showing my Work in Progress on this little lady on my Facebook page for the last couple of weeks. I gave myself quite a challenge, since this is the largest collage I have done so far, and the first animal that is not a bird!

I think she is complete now, but I'll give it a rest for a couple of days, then take another look to make sure I don't need to make any changes.

Check out the WIP on my Facebook page HERE.

I used a lot of paper in the background that I printed with my Gelli Arts Gel Printing Plate, that I just love! Lots of papers from old, beat up cookbooks and storybooks were used on the cow. Sometimes, I use photocopies of the pages that I like and then paint over them, so I can use the words more than once.
