I finished this collage to go into the Palos Heights Library with the collage class that April taught.  We used coffee to paint papers with to start with and I also selected green and purple acrylic paints.  Various papers were painted to start with such as dictionary pages, white paper bags, and sheets of music. So the collage started with those painted papers and then we added other papers we had. I had some tissue paper that had green and purple paint and coffee filters with coffee flecks.  I decided to cut out leaves to add an image and then was lucky enough to find a quote about music and leaves. I used a style that I learned in Monica Dengo's workshop with a handmade folded "coke pen".
