House Collage in Progress, Part 2

I was sick yesterday, so no time for posting. But here they are!

I added some painted textured detail :
ThenI added some of Anahata's collagey strips: And then some children in the doorways, and some more text:
FINALLY, I added some charcoal detailing to add more depth, and a bit more paint to pull it all together. Voila! I'm finished. Hmmm, I like this.... maybe I should keep it.... LOL -- just kidding, Elizabeth, it's off to you -- sorry that it is late......
(the size is 9x12, by the way)

It's a beautiful piece; I can see why you wanted to keep it. You should make more.

Thank you so much for posting your step by step photos. I never really understood how a collage was constructed until now; I'm excited to give it a try myself now! :0)
