Monochrome Collage - North American Indian Style

Well at last I have finished my collage.
Well actually I slipped with the craft knife and now I have 2 collages!

I chose this colour as the stone Turquoise is used a lot in North American Indian jewellery.

It is hard to see but the background is coloured with inks and stamped. The background is also brushed with Pearl Ex powders hence the shine.

Different papers were pasted over the background and then stamped with pictures of cave art.

I actually (health issues aside) found this a real challenge. I love this colour but the temptation to add pink and purple was very hard to fight.

Oh I adore this! So glad you managed to resist adding those extra colours as I think the turquoise works really well. I find it hard to stick to one colour/shade too, so know what you mean, lol.

This is truly wonderful work. I am glad you didn't add pink, it would have ruined it. xoxo nita
