I decided the yellow was just tooo glaring when I saw it online.  I took the veiling off and put some lettering behind which will tie in with the woman writing at her desk.

It is rather dark, but I think the Victorians liked rich, dark colors.

  1. This is lovely, Ruth. I never leave myself enough time to play with some collage this way and must get back to doing some. I am not bothered by the yellow at all. To me? it is like fresh light shed on an old subject. But, I know what many say! Too much yellow a “no-no”. Who asked me?, Right? I could look at this piece for a long time and never tire of it.

  2. Thanks… I like it better since I put some bits of a letter under the netting..I think it added another dimension to it. I really enjoy getting lost in collages…I must do more too.
