Flowers - collage mixed media painting

I haven't posted for a while as I have been laid low with the flu.  I made this painting a little while ago and it's been in an exhibition at the Strathnairn Arts Centre in Canberra.  It is only 30cm square on a  stretched canvas.  I got the idea from Cloth, Paper, Scissors website and really loved scrunching up tissue paper and gluing it with other fancy papers before adding paint and varnish.  The texture really stands out.  Magenta is not a colour I usually use but I quite like it - gives a happy look.
