Irises In A Vase - Mixed Media Collage - 5x7

I took some time out from my busy holiday schedule to put the finishing touches on this second little iris collage. This time, instead of using a Japanese lace paper in the background, I chose to use two layers of Mizutama (raindrop paper) in the foreground as the vase. I'm fascinated with Japanese lace papers. I love their delicacy, transparency and variety. I also love the challenge of finding them. Just when I think I've found a reliable supplier, they'll stop carrying my favorites and I have to scout around online for another supplier. And during the hunt I often discover new varieties of lace paper so it's always an adventure.
