Dove Collage, continued

I added another layer of thinned acrylic to deepen the color and also to push back the first layer of collage elements  Then I applied the remaining elements with matte gel medium.  The green leaves are textured paper that I tinted with watercolor.  The brownish leaves are torn from teabag skins  The rest of the pieces are drawings.
The edges of all the pieces are torn, with the exception of the lower part of the moth and most of the upper frog which are closely cut with scissors.  I would come to regret those precise cuts...
