"Envelop" + Step-By-Step

Hey Everyone! Today I have included my newest completed flower/plant piece as well as a step-by-step image to demonstrate how this particular collage was assembled. The featured piece below is titled "Envelop".

Envelop
16in. x 16in. photo collage
Series : Efflorescence

**NOTE: The title of the flower/plant series has changed. and has been corrected in previous posts. 

My collage "Envelop" is made up of approximately 35 photo cut-outs of leaves in various sizes and exposures. They were then coated with a spray adhesive and individually layered on top of one another. I kept the smaller and darker leaves under the larger and brighter ones to create more visual depth within the piece. See the image below for 5 detailed shots of the piece's construction.
